Instead of continuing to post my BBQ discoveries in fun things I thought I'd start a dedicated thread. I'm hoping the folks that are locals upstate will clue me in as to where to find good brisket and pulled pork near some good skiing (like Roxbury maybe).
Anyway, my first endorsement is going to Big Daddy's on 9W in Haverstraw. It's a little off the beaten path but doable as a side trip if you're passing through Rockland County via the Palisades Parkway...
In addition to good food, they feature a very cool, family atmosphere.
I've had their food four or five times now and I can say it is really really good. Some of the hipster-ish BBQ places that are popping up don't even make collard greens but these guys do and they're pretty tasty.
I assume you have been to Baily's in Orangeburg ..I don't eat meat (red or the other white meat ) but my friends swear by it...
I worked in Haverstraw for 10 yrs..Still gives me the chills thinking about it..
I've eaten Baileys food many, many times and I'm a fan but they've become so popular, I think their quality is slipping, at least for takeout (which is how I usually get it). Matt, where is redneck? I searched it and the only place that came up is in cooperstown.
