The resident grill masters at Uncle Jimmy’s Backyard BBQ baste ribs, chicken, and pulled pork with zesty sauces, rounding out their menu of flame-kissed grub. Diners can oil rusty jaw hinges with meal-prefacing portions of fried zucchini strings ($6.50) or rent a forklift to ferry caramelized onions, fresh ricotta, and pulled pork from slices of barbecue pita pizza ($8) into waiting mouths. Rotisserie grilled chicken ($12 for a half bird) arrives dressed in barbecue sauce or lemon oreganata, and the Pig Out combo platter ($17) conquers carnivorous hunger pangs with a mighty triumvirate of pulled pork, ribs, and italian sausage. Each entree, such as the popular kansas city baby back ribs ($16 for a half slab), comes with two side dishes, such as sweet mashed potatoes or corn muffins, arriving on plates known to begin tugs of war with diners for the rights to them.

Soco’s proprietors had a vision: to create a neighborhood institution that is equal parts restaurant and cocktail bar. With food and drink offerings such as the pecan-crusted pork chop and a caramel martini topped with a toasted marshmallow, it’s hard not to sample both sides of the business on any given visit. Before Soco opened, its owners and executive chef Kingley John all worked together at Negril Village, a West Village Caribbean eatery. That experience inspired the group to shape Soco’s menu into the fusion of southern-American classics and Caribbean influences now on its lunch, brunch, dinner, and cocktail menus. In practice, that combination brings about flavorful plates such as blackened salmon and jambalaya with seared shrimp, Andouille chicken sausage, and dirty rice. Grass-fed beef burgers are accentuated with caramelized onions, red-bean mayonnaise, and parmesan-dusted fries, and at lunch, organic fried chicken tops a red velvet waffle. The wait staff can also recommend food pairings with Boylan’s cane soda, 20 American microbrews, or the bar’s 10 signature cocktails. As an homage to Soco’s home borough, designer Andres Aladin drew up plans for the eatery to look like “the Brooklyn Bridge turned into a restaurant.” To accomplish that feat, he juxtaposed industrial elements such as locally sourced steel with the homey feel of exposed brick, walnut walls, and a rotating staff of mothers who watch until you clean your plate.

At first glance, you might miss the small neon sign hanging above a chain-link fence. That glowing pink beacon is all that exists to lead unsuspecting passersby into a barbecue joint that has been consistently rated on Zagat as one of New York's best. Fette Sau, which appropriately means fat pig in German, is the brainchild of owner Joe Carroll, who eschews sauces for a panela-and-espresso-based dry rub to season the restaurant's ever-changing selection of organic and family-farmed heritage breed meats. Once they've been slathered in spices, the cuts slow cook in a massive smoker fueled by both gas and five types of locally sourced wood, which help seal in the spices and make the protein tender and succulent. Built in a repurposed mechanic's shop, the dining area has as distinct industrial vibe. A floor-to-ceiling mural shows various cuts of pork and beef, overlooking bar stools made from John Deere tractor seats and picnic tables topped with bottles of sauce. The beverage selection honors this Americana vibe, as well—between bites of pulled pork and duck breast, patrons sip craft brews from mason jars and sample pours from a lengthy whiskey list.

Brooklyn Ice House is the top spot in Red Hook for tasty, affordable BBQ. Their pulled pork sandwiches go perfectly with a side of crispy onion rings. Or try their signature chili cheese fries, frito pies or the Cheesy Pete's with bacon-they’re worth the calories. The casual atmosphere and friendly service makes this an old standby for locals. A patio out back is the perfect place to cool down on a hot summer day with a cold beer and BBQ or entertain yourself inside with a competitive game of pinball or other arcade games.
