Do you have a grraphic for "medsa meds"?

Quote:
The possible location is 166 South 4th Street, a few blocks east from their previous location. But owner Sarah Buck cautions that everything is up in the air at this point; they have yet to sign the lease. Since liquor licenses can take an agonizingly long time to come through, the appearance before the Community Board was intended to get the process started. (The Community Board approved their request, which is just one step on the journey of a thousand miles.)

So for now, it's cross your thighs and wait.

So I got caught up in this thread over the last couple of days. Well today I had a hot date at Daisy May's, 11th Ave & 46th St. I'm a Full Rack Dry Rub man myself. I give it two thumbs up, just not way up. Sweet Tea rocked.

Next stop Hunts Point.

Into the Wild
Barbecue Master Resurfaces


Image

New York has seen more than its share of barbecue lately, but when there's a master at work, we can't help but take notice.

And we're always ready for more short ribs.

Welcome to Wildwood Barbecue, "Big Lou" Elrose's take on the best damn American barbecue, opening this Thursday.

You might be familiar with Texas-style barbecue from Hill Country, Big Lou's previous gig, but Wildwood casts a wider net. To prepare the menu, Lou went on a pilgrimage to the best barbecue joints in the country, stockpiling 500 jars of sauce and visiting pits from Raleigh to St. Louis. The result is a menu chock full of the best regional American barbecue, with pulled pork courtesy of North Carolina, baby back ribs from Memphis, pork ribs from Kansas City and lamb spare ribs from...his imagination.

Naturally, you'll want something to wash all that down, so they've stockpiled 30 different bourbons for your sipping pleasure, along with suitably refined cocktails like a spot-on Mint Julep (fortified with "Kentucky Colonel" mint).

The sauces are all cooked up by Big Lou himself without typical flavor shortcuts like Tabasco, cayenne or liquid smoke. And unlike any other BBQ spot in the state, all of Wildwood's meats are all-natural and hormone-free, you know, like granddad used to make.

Without those occasional lighter fluid mishaps.
Wildwood Barbecue, 225 Park Ave S. (at 18th), 212-533-2500

While not in NYC...Big W's up here in the sticks is a great place to go.

(Herb is spot on with his assesment)

The food, and I mean all the food, is slow cooked in hickory smoke. The chickens take like 5 hours to cook and are truly delicious.

The brisket & ribs are just amazing and the pulled pork is no joke either. For side dishes he smokes beans that are just wonderful...and some kind of veggie...usually cabbage. There's also dirty rice and chili.

While a bit off the beaten path...the place is open on Sundays and makes a great riding destination.

Wildwood -

brisket - moist, salty, melt-in-your-mouth
chicken - moist, sweet (apricots maybe?), tender
pulled pork - no sauce, just basic deliciousness
lamb spare ribs - unbefookinlievable, words fail
corn bread & sweet potato fries - irrelevant, but excellent anyway

These guys are serious. The tastes are subtle - if you like Dallas BBQ, you won't like Wildwood - but if you've been the rounds of NYC BBQ joints you should give this place a try.

Rating - four belches.

Got an Amex card and $100?

If so, you have exclusive access to express lines at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party 6/7 and 8...

Quote:
The $100 FastPass -- redeemable for food, beverage & merchandise at the festival -- "guarantees exclusive access to express lines for each FastPass holder and one guest to all food and beverage purveyors throughout the entire weekend." Everyone else will be stuck in the lines, which in past years have been as long as it takes an ornery, two-legged pig to walk a country mile.

Best Barbecue

Barbecue is one of those things where each place in New York only does one or two things really well. Daisy May's whole roast suckling pig has to be ordered in advance, but the delicious short ribs are available every day. The Flintstonian beef ribs at Blue Smoke are a source of much gnawable pleasure, and the moist brisket at Hill Country is indeed a beautiful thing.

Daisy May's: 623 11th Avenue, New York NY 10036 (map); 212-977-1500. Blue Smoke: 116 East 27th Street, New York NY 10016 (map); 212-447-7733. Hill Country: 30 West 26th Street, New York NY 10010 (map); 212-255-4544.

Bad ideas in the history of BBQing. Don't cook in an unventilated basement.

Jonathan will certainly be spoiled in Dallas. It will damage him for life. The NYC BBQ scene will never be the same!

Great thread. So many good recs. Being a masshole, i just kinda 'discovered' BBQ recently. And I likes it. yum, yum yum..
I'm almost afraid to ask (please don't shoot me, franky) I don't think it was mentioned here, maybe its a chain, but how
'bout Virgil's. I thought it was good, but what do I know.

Also, going to Nashville next week. Wondering does anyone has any fav food spots they can recommend, BBQ or otherwise?

That's not saying much. I think Virgil's sucks, seriously. So many better options now.

Nashville? Memphis is known for BBQ much more so than Nashville, but this place is supposed to be awesome:

Loveless Cafe
Location: 8400 Highway 100
Nashville US 37221
True southern cooking -- mouth-watering biscuits, gravy galore, fresh preserves, hot country ham, and Southern Fried Chicken that will make you drool.
