Hometown Bar-B-Que opened in Red Hook, Brooklyn, in September 2013. We specialize in authentic, pit-smoked meats prepared in the classic Southern technique of smoking on oak wood. We also incorporate a variety of flavor profiles that represent our local communities. Hometown also serves up a wide selection of traditional sides and dessert. Our two bars feature craft beers, a wide range of American whiskeys, seasonal cocktails and Red Hook wines. In classic barbecue style, we offer walk-up service to our counter on a first-come, first-served basis—until we sell out of that day’s specially cooked offerings. To make the wait enjoyable, chat with fellow diners, order drinks from the bar and listen to live music on weekend nights.
Grab your Wet-Naps—Brooklyn’s BBQ renaissance shows no signs of cooling off. This wood-paneled 120-seat smokehouse is the latest addition to the scene, a collaboration between self-taught pit master Billy Durney and restaurateur Christopher Miller (Smith & Mills, Warren 77). Inspired by his Brooklyn upbringing and travels through the South, Durney turns out ‘cue with global influences. Dig into smoked meats both American (Texas-style brisket, North Carolina–inspired baby back ribs) and international (smoked jerk chicken, lamb belly banh mi).
