We've got the lowdown the City's most delicious barbecue joints. Not so long ago, great 'cue was hard to get in NYC, but not so anymore. Mighty Quinn's in the East Village, Fort Reno Provisions in Park Slope and Butcher Bar in Astoria do far more than punch the clock when it comes to smoking meats for as long as need be. Our slideshow features competition-worthy brisket and pulled pork, some with a Southern slant, some more Texas in style and one that shows off Korea's contribution to the canon. Origins aside, it's all independently homegrown, with much of the meat, wood and beer sourced locally. Read on for all the messy details.
