Village Voice's Description

John Brown Smokehouse in Long Island City was a late arrivant to the barbecue game in town, but has proved to be one of our most desirable pits. Named after the leader of a slave uprising just prior to the Civil War, the joint specializes in Kansas City barbecue, which means lightly glazed spare ribs, smoked brisket, and—best of all —the charred tips cut off the brisket ends, which may be purchased separately. A surprise favorite is the pulled pork (which may be made into a sandwich with some of the non-mayo slaw). If the pitmaster has
smoked lamb sausage that day, grab some! Unexpectedly, the French fries are wonderful, and so are the meat-intensive collards.

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Try the Rib Tips, rubbed down with paprika and brown sugar, then smoked over peach and pecan wood for three hours. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

  • The New York Times on 11/29/11

    Recommended: Pork ribs and rib tips, pork belly, lamb sausage sandwich, burnt ends, cole slaw.

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/27/11

    John Brown's pork spare ribs ($8 for 1/4 slab) "are not messy or reliant on sauce; the flavor and smoky aroma stand on their own bones."

  • Jake S. on 09/08/13

    Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends. Burnt ends.

    Patrick Healy owes me big time for introducing him to the best BbQ in NYC. Burnt Ends and the cornbread are KILLER. Bang Bang.
