    that's the one thing I didn't get. I got up there to order, and my mind went lost. Ordered fried green tomatoes, creole deviled eggs, beer boiled shrimp, bronzed catfish, pulled pork sandwich, full rack of ribs, two ordered of baked beans with pork, two orders of sweet potatoes, salt potatoes, curried succotash, and maybe one or two other things.

    keep in mind my wife is a vegetarian.


    There's a new Dinosaur in, I believe, Park Slope.

    There are several new BBQ places within walking distance of me that are supposed to be fantastic. Have not tried them because:

    1) They are slammed. A couple of them regularly sell out. I'm not standing in line for 30 minutes for BBQ.
    2) It physically pains me to pay $25/lb for BBQ. BBQ is supposed to be $9 for a plate that contains enough food for 3 days.

    I hope not! You're supposed to eat disgusting amounts of food when eating BBQ.

    $25/lb for bbq is downright ridiculous, aravenel.

    In Texas, the standard fare is $9.50 for half a pound, or 19 bucks per pound.

    That better be the best damned bbq at 25 bucks.

    Yeah, but in texas it isn't grass-fed, pasture raised, hand masturbated daily, and massaged before it is humanely put down, appropriate services given, aged 4 weeks, dry rubbed and slow cooked for 47 days.

    The Dinosaur in Harlem makes mention of their fancy beef on the menu. The Dinosaur in upstate NY wouldn't ever bother (it's much more divey).

    i really should have ordered a variety plate of sorts, but I was level 10 hungry and just named off plate after plate with a clear focus on ribs. Didn't order any chicken either, but that's mostly because I have one in the fridge from earlier in the day.

    At Fette Sau, the BBQ place I generally go to the brisket is the cheapest and lowest quality of cut there is.

    I just looked at their yelp page and the pictures of their brisket look like shit. They look really dry.

    The pork belly looks amazing though. I'd probably get that instead of the brisket. I'm wary of the expansive menu, though.

    The best bbq joints in Texas focus on brisket, ribs, chicken, and sausage. Now that I think of it, I've yet to see pulled pork on the menus of the most highly rated joints.
