According to Food Site, Local Smoke BBQ has the best ribs in New Jersey


By far one of the best foods Americans love to eat when spring and summer are around the corner? RIBS!

Light the grill! There's nothing like getting your hands sticky biting into a juicy, perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned and saucey rib. They are the stuff that memories of the backyard grill are made of.

Grill. Grill table spread. Beef brisket, chicken, pork ribs, beef ribs, mac n cheese, cornbread, Brussels sprouts, coleslaw and beer. Classic traditional Texas meats and sides.

From seasoning the meat, to marinating it for hours in a magical blend of spices and juices, to ensuring the right heat and then patiently slow cooking until the juicy meat falls off the bone. It's a lot of work and not everyone can master the method.

Here's one of the great things about New Jersey. You don't have to travel all the way to Texas to get the best ribs you've ever tasted. Of course, there are more of these popular barbecue joints in the South, but don't sleep on New Jersey BBQ!
