The Meat Falls apart on eating as it should, it is both intensely peppery and slightly sweet. Its served on butcher paper-lined metal tray, with accouterments in paper cups, but this is the meal that requires neither sauce nor niceties.

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.
