Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque – Smorgasburg and Various Locations, New York
As a barbecue obsessed individual, when I saw Mighty Quinn’s occupying a stall at Smorgasburg a few weekends ago, I knew I’d found lunch.
Pit Master Hugh Mangum abides by slow-cooking his high quality barbecue meats with plenty of wood and time. The freshly-sliced brisket is topped with a light sprinkling of sea salt and some delicious barbecue sauce. It’s a picture-perfect combination. I almost didn’t want to take a bite.
Wow! What a brisket sandwich! The meat had a perfectly charred black exterior giving way to a red smoke ring interior. I can see why Mighty Quinn’s is a top spot among barbecue lovers – this was delicious. My only complaint was that the brisket could have been a little juicer. I thought it was somewhat dry and could have had a little bit more fat on it.
Next stop – checking out one of Mighty Quinn’s restaurant locations, which are based on the fast casual cafeteria model (and ordering the entire menu). Anyone want to join?
