This South Bronx spot makes exceptional smoked chicken wings in a dry rub, along with a ton of other meat and BBQ sides that are perfect for a big, casual group meal. Dipping Hudson Smokehouse’s wings into their homemade apply, vinegar-based BBQ sauce tastes like Fall decided to throw itself a party. So we recommend coming during their weekday Happy Hour (from 3-6pm), and loading up on wings, and baked beans laden with pineapple and pieces of tender brisket.

John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.
