Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
Some might call me a barbecue snob. And I suppose they’d be right. I just have very high expectations for barbecue, having spent time in parts of Tennessee, North Carolina, and the mecca of American barbecue, Texas. So when I tweeted out disappointments about some of last year’s hot new NYC barbecue joints, it’s from a desire for the smoked meat to be really good. I can’t explain why some major food critics gushed over some of these joints.
There was indeed some stellar barbecue this year (Briskettown, Fletcher’s), but the one that impressed me the most opened up quietly at the end of the year. Sure, Morgan’s BBQ was packed when we went in for some meat, but it hasn’t reached the over-the-top hype saturation as some of the other BBQ openings.
