NEW YORK

Syracuse, NY – Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

You better get here early if you want some of the Dinosaurs meats.  This place gets packed fast.  The famous upstate NY BBQ house has a great selection of your favorite smoked meat meals, tasty sides, & a great brew offering.

Cortland, NY – Dickey’s Barbeque Pit

It might be a bigger chain, but Dickey’s still has an authentic BBQ menu that’s alway been fresh & delicious when I’ve visited.  Definitely a place I stop when I’m in town.

Conklin, NY – Big Dipper BBQ 2

It doesn’t look like much from the road, but this little family owned business that provides delicious BBQ to the Southern Tier of Binghaton.  I work nearby and have made a few visits for lunch.  I really enjoy their pulled pork sandwiches.

TENNESEE

Arlington, TN – Plumpy’s BBQ 

I’ve eaten at this little BBQ shop several times while visiting the area for work.  They have excellent pulled pork sandwiches, slaw, & other side dishes.  You get great service & friendly staff.  You can pick up a bottle of their meat rub as well while there for a visit. It’s definitely worth a stop, so check’em out!
