BrisketTown - Brooklyn, NY

As Brooklyn’s self-described house of meat, BrisketTown is a great place to start out on any meat-themed road trip. There are no fancy plays on barbecue at BrisketTown, just solid, no-frills Central Texas-style eats. Their brisket is rubbed with salt and pepper and then smoked for fifteen hours until perfectly tender. The sides you can skip, but don’t forget to check out their seasonal pie menu for dessert.

What to Order: The Brisket, obviously. It’s right there in the name.
