The Best of New York’s BBQ – Photos – Daniel Krieger

If you’ve followed me for even a short period of time you’ll know I’m a sucker for BBQ pics. I really can’t get enough of them so you can imagine how happy I was to stumble upon Daniel Krieger’s photo assignment on the Best BBQ Joints in New York. These really insane BBQ pics from an extremely talented photographer. I’ve put links to the joints featured so you can check out the joints if you’re so inspired.

Even though Rudy’s falls under the dreaded ‘chain’ category, I’ve only heard good things and would definitely recommend you stop at any of their 29 locations for a really good BBQ meal.

Tollie’s Barbecue – Arlington, Texas

The Star-Telegram did a short piece on Tollie’s Barbecue in Arlington, Texas.

From the article by Teresa Gubbins, “The meat: Brisket is usually the barbecue standard, and the slices here had a promising black crust and smoky flavor. But the meat was dry and rather tough. You might not mind it if you’re phobic about the presence of fat, because it has none. However, if you believe, as many barbecue fans do, that a little fat adds tenderness and flavor, then the Tollie’s version will leave you dry. St. Louis-style ribs — thickly cut with more meat on the bone than the usual rib — were a Tollie’s pick. The edges of the meat were a bit dry, giving them an almost jerkylike chew, but the meat retained some moistness and a tangy hamlike flavor. Smaller baby-back ribs had a blackened crust with plenty of smoke and salt, but there wasn’t much meat on the bone; it seemed like they’d been left in the smoker too long.”

It appears that Tollie’s is doing the BBQ from the “many regions menu” that a lot of BBQ Joints do to cover their bases. From Teresa’s write-up, it does appear that they have overextended their BBQ a bit, but I do have to say that the rib photo looks pretty mouth-watering. It just recently opened so I’m sure they are working out the kinks. I haven’t been yet, but would love to hear from those who have.
