I took a hiatus from eating BBQ since I stuffed my face at a barbecue festival in Austin this past November (no regrets). Luckily my friends took me to Hometown BBQ in Red Hook, even though the rain and cold, to eat here. Now I finally understand why.
Once I stepped into the restaurant – whoosh – the smells of smoked meats and heat permeated my whole being. Excited and hungry, I was ready to pounce on all the meats and stuff myself silly. Our plate was filled with corn bread, Hometown coleslaw, brisket and pork ribs.
This beef brisket was magical, and barely was able to be held with my fork because it was so soft.
The wood fired chicken used an Oaxacan marinade, and served with pickled onions and salsa verde.
Beef ribs, close-up.
Picklebacks, just because.
Banana bread pudding, one of the best ways to end a delicious meal.
So glad to have come here, and cannot wait to go back! No reservations needed, though I’d make sure to go there on an off-peak time like we did (~9pm on a Friday).
