Friday Find: Trying Everything on the Menu at Hometown Barbecue

Monk: Alex Delany, formerly of Bon Appétit, used to do this thing where he tries one “perfect” bite from everything on the menu and then gives out awards for his favorite items. For his visit to Hometown Barbecue in Red Hook, Brad Leone joins in on the menu tasting.

They are also joined for a short chat with Dave Gill, Aussie pitmaster of Hometown, who gives his recommended order for first time customers at Hometown.


Note: After I composed this past, I found out that Delany left Bon Appétit last year under quite a bit of controversy and while I don’t condone his actions, I still wanted to feature this video for the Hometown Barbecue of it all.

Description: While New York City may not be a city known for its barbecue, Hometown Bar-B-Que stands apart as a truly great spot to meet your smokey meat needs. We sent Alex Delany to go try one perfect bite of every item on the menu at this joint, and we also sent his buddy Brad Leone along for the ride.
