Hometown Bar-B-Que

Opened by New York-bred pitmaster Billy Durney in 2013, this Texas-sized barbecue joint on the Red Hook waterfront prepares meats in the classic Southern technique - smoked over oak wood. Look for enormous beef ribs, Texas-style brisket, pulled lamb belly, pork sausage, jerk chicken and pulled pork belly. Traditional sides include sugary baked beans, stewed collards, gooey mac and cheese, sweet cornbread and lightly pickled cucumbers. Fans rave about the brisket and pulled pork tacos, served in hand-made corn tortillas with salsa verde, pickled red onion, lime crema and cilantro. A walk-up service counter takes orders on a first-come, first-served basis — until the day’s offerings sell out, often by 9 p.m. While customers wait, they can enjoy craft beers, American whiskeys, seasonal cocktails and Red Hook wines from one of two bars. Live music keeps the place jumping on weekend nights.
