RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT DAY in NYC!

Yesterday TELLYOUWHATBBQ.com embarked upon a 'research trip' to NYC.  With two impending competitions involving WINGS we decided it was time for R&D.  No, NOT Relaxing & Drinking!!  But, some honest BBQ 'work'.  First stop EAST 116th Street:

HarleysSmokeshack.org
Harley's Smokeshack EAST 16th STREET

Well, we arrived just in time for HAPPY HOUR!! Noon.  And WHAT could be better than BBQ, HAPPY HOUR, WINGS and beautiful SERVERS!??  Umm...I dunno' PERHAPS a BRISKET SANDWICH!!!

Brisky wit' onions and cheese -- thin sliced VERY GOOD!~

We began our research with an APPLE BBQ sauce and a GARLIC/BACON/CHIVE medley.  BOTH were delicious.

As you can see, we HATED THEM! 

TYWtip: For those 'out of towners', NO DAY TRIP TO A BAR IN NYC IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A QUICK READ OF THE NY POST!!  Makes you look like a local - Be sure to interject profanity laced tirades and mutter senselessly while reading and drinking alone.

Great Decor

The PIG on the MENS ROOM door -- Ladies, are you trying to tell us something??


As we quickly 'saddled up' for our next stop the GRAN PAPPY HAD to pose for a  MONEY SHOT with the ladies - thanks Jessica!

Our bartender MARCELA from ECUADOR did a tremendous job.  Pretty, Polite and Pleasant.  That's what TYWBBQ.com expects from a bartender.


ATTENTION ALL RESTAURANTEURS:  
THIS is what PATRONS LIKE TO SEE!!
Old Fashioned BUYBACK POLICY 
(YES, we did have a RESPONSIBLE DRIVER!)


So, if you are looking for a UNIQUE PLACE for some Q' in East Harlem  try 
HARLEYS SMOKESHACK on EAST 116th -- we WILL BE BACK!!


NEXT STOP, CARMINES (uptown) BROADWAY between 90/91st.  Now, the GranPappy has been here MANY TIMES and there is a REASON FOR THAT!
Bway between 90/91st


THE GRAN PAPPY RECOMMENDS:
WINGS <--yes, I DID SAY THAT.  They are NOT WHAT YOU EXPECT.  Garlic, lemon, rosemary...delicious with a fennel chaser.
RIGATONI COUNTRY STYLE - crumbled sausage, onions, GARLIC, broccoli, pancetta, cannellini beans, a chicken roux...WOW.
Rigatoni country-style
SO, good...

Our 'RESEARCH' was done whilst the pleasant Cedric the bartender was our host.  
The TRASHMAN had a cold Italian, J. WAWA and MIKE the PIPES spilt the chicken parm hero which COMES WITH eggplant (each sammy also comes with a small salad)   -- the Pappy and Teammate Tim split the steak sandwich 

TYWtip: BE SURE to special order the steak sandwich WITH PEPPERS and drizzled BALSAMIC!!

Well, as we keep headin WEST on to DINOSAUR BBQ - If you are a Q' fan in the tristate area you know Dinosaur.  There are now SEVERAL locations, the original is in SYRACUSE and well worth the roadtrip!!  I would go NOW because it will probably be snowing in Syracuse by next week!

We  are now in WEST HARLEM

the menu -- you really need SMELL-a-VISION to capture the true essence

interior at W125th street

Of course, we had to TAG the wall

The Bathroom Wall
Thanks to the TRASHMANS height advantage --- we won't talk length...

The day was a SMASHING success...thanks to the Trashman, Teammate TIM, J WAWA, and Mike the PIPES for a great day of 'RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT'.

If you have any questions about any of these joints, PLEASE feel free to contact TELL YOU WHAT BBQ!!



SEE YOU IN THE SMOKE~~
