Fort Reno BBQ ribs
#1. Fette Sau’s Pork Cheeks
Proven experts in pulled pork and Texas brisket, Fette Sau also occasionally stocks their intimidating case of carnivorousness with Berkshire pork cheeks. And when they do, order them! The small slabs are perfectly charred and crusty on the outside, tender on the inside and, really, a moral must for head-to-tail eaters.
354 Metropolitan Ave, Williamsburg
#2. Fort Reno’s St. Louis-style Ribs
A chunky, molasses-based sauce is slathered on these meaty pork ribs before they’re tossed on the grill, rendering them messy (but not overly sweet and sticky) and mouth-wateringly tender in equal measure. Ask for a char-grilled whole jalepeño on the side!
669 Union Ave, Park Slope
#3. Mable’s Smoke-House’s Brisket
A good brisket is hard to find north of the Mason-Dixon line, but luckily Mable’s brings the beef: nicely fatty, lip-smackingly smoky, and over the top when taken for a dip in the prized family-recipe house sauce.
