If you have to grill yourself one more thing this summer…there’s going to be trouble. But seriously, BBQ should also be enjoyed by getting it from the geniuses who do it for a living. That’s where we come in. Though NYC definitely cannot compete with Texas on cowboy boot popularity or mechanical bull prominence, we can definitely give the south a run for its money when it comes to amazing BBQ.

The city is packed with barbecue spots that will leave you craving more – and though we are yet to find a spot in NYC with a 3-5 hour wait, à la Franklin Barbecue in Austin, we have found ten must-try locations.
