Joints Directory Madness

Here's the latest batch of barbecue Joints directory activity, spanning four states. This time there are five new joints (or new to the site).

 

NEW JOINTS and/or NEW TO THE DIRECTORY

 

  • House of Que (Hoboken NJ) represents a new venture for Michael Rodriguez, formerly of the Salt Lick in Texas and still with the Tres Carnes mini-chain. House of Cue is a slick space with an L-shaped bar, a wall of TVs behind it, a stage for entertainment, cafeteria style ordering and possibly the best view of the Manhattan skyline of any barbecue joint near it. If you're a fan of Tres Carnes' chili, you'll find it here too. Thanks to Billy for the lead. www.houseofque.com

 

  • Billygoats BBQ (West Dennis MA) is a week-old Cape Cod barbecue joint offering ribs,pulled pork, brisket, smoked wings, fried chicken and lettuce wraps with smoked meats. Adding to the experience are a few TVs and live music on weekends. Thanks to Mark for the lead. www.billygoatsbbq.com

 

  • Blue Bayou BBQ (Clark NJ) is a new addition with the basic four in various permutations, plus meatloaf, a few different fish and steak options, pierogies with onions and a strong emphasis on desserts. www.bluebayoubbq.com

 

  • Two Neanderthals Smoking BBQ (Springfield VT) is a food truck featuring "caveman style" barbecue (ribs, pork and brisket) along with burgers, dogs and chili. Seems like they're open all year, Thanks to Jeff for the find.
    www.twoneanderthals.com

 

  • Smokin' Rib (Rockville Centre NY) is a new Long Island barbecue joint about which not much is known. But they do serve Shiner Bock, as evidenced by a neon in the doorway. Thanks to Sledneck for the lead. Facebook

Boston 'Burgers: Bartley's Reviewed

A holiday weekend means a focus away from barbecue and towards burgers, so here's a look at one of Boston's old guard. The latest burger review is for Bartley's Gourmet Burgers (Cambridge MA), a Harvard Square institution that's been slinging burgers since the days of JFK.
