Texas-style barbecue has come to Brooklyn, even if this 'cue begins in an 18-foot smoke pit located a few blocks away. And yet this kitchen remains focused on creamy mac n' cheese, whiskey sour pickles, and mayo-mustardy potato salad. Meats arrive tender enough to have a caramel crunch- for instance, coated in a blackened peppery bark, the beef rib is obscenely large, deliciously moist and mighty popular. Sausages snap and explode with juice and chili-spiced bite (each is sold by the plump quarter-pound link), while desserts are less provocative and may feature a simple banana cream pudding. The warehouse-like space is clad in repurposed wood with communal picnic tables lending an intimate and friendly vibe. Water Taxi is the easiest way here from Manhattan.
