An annoying number of restaurants in the Catskill-proper area are only open Thursday-Sunday to cater to weekend visitors, but J&J Smokehouse BBQ is open seven days a week. Housed in a 1940s-era gas station, this place doesn’t limit itself to one specific regional style. Instead, you’ll find smoked meats and sides that pull from the wide variety of American barbecue techniques. Everything is solid, but they do spicy foods especially well. We love the sausage of fire and spicy pickled cauliflower. The burnt ends tend to sell out quickly, so if that’s your favorite meat, we recommend coming earlier in the day.
