With cold weather and restaurants sticking to limited outdoor dining, being able to kickback and stuff your face with top-notch BBQ isn't exactly an easy endeavor. However, it's not impossible.
There are a ton of mouthwatering BBQ joints from all over the U.S.A. that've teamed up with Goldbelly and will happily ship you ribs, brisket, wings, pulled pork, sides, and more. What places? Glad you asked. We've got Mighty Quinn's Terry Black's BBQ, Blue Smoke, and even a northerner's favorite: Dinosaur BBQ.
Combing Carolina and Texas BBQ methods is not for the weak-willed. And when it's done right, it should look something like Mighty Quinn's.
In this sampler, you're looking at one half brisket (~3 lbs) made from all natural meat and smoked for up to 22 hours; 2 lbs of burnt ends—cut off the flat ends of brisket and simmered in their house made BBQ sauce; one pork spare rib rack (seasoned with their house made spice blend and smoked for 4-6 hours); and one bottle of BBQ sauce.
Looking for sides? Those are extra but definitely worth it.
Blue Smoke does Memphis-style baby back ribs out of NYC, and they do it right. With this deal, you'll get two racks, Memphis BBQ sauce, and the option to add a bunch of sides like mac & cheese, beans, slaw, and/or cornbread muffins.
What do you get when you combine classic Texas BBQ techniques with old-school NYC deli-style? You get Ugly Drum's practically perfect pit-smoked pastrami brisket.
The brisket is wet brined for several days before being pit-smoked over low, indirect heat from charcoal & whole oak /pecan logs for 10 hours.
If this sounds like some of best pastrami to have ever been cooked, it's because many have made that claim. This packet here is enough to feed 6-8 people.
Peg Leg Porker is hooking you up with two racks BBQ pork ribs (dusted in a delicious dry rub), two pounds of pulled pork, one bottle of BBQ dry rub, one bag of Peg Leg Porker Pork Rinds, and one bottle of BBQ sauce. The entire meal serves 6-8 people.
Pappy's is straight out of St. Louis but is doing it big when it comes to Memphis-style 'cue.
These ribs are slow smoked for 24 hours over sweet apple or cherry wood and the results have been called "the best ribs in America."
With this meal, you'll be able to serve 8 and get a bottle of Pappy’s Famous Jane’s Sweet BBQ Sauce to top it off.
Just like the link says, pick your meats! You can choose from dry-rubbed and slow-smoked St. Louis ribs, BBQ chicken, or Dinosaur's hickory-smoked pork shoulder or beef brisket. It's a win/win/win scenario.
This package serves 6 and comes with sauce, beans, and a side of chili.
Terry Black's makes some of the best BBQ in Texas—Austin, to be exact. For this portion of whole smoked brisket, they use the help of post oak wood and let the meat smoke on that for 12 hours.
With this order, you'll get about 5lbs of meat—which'll serve around 10-12 people.
Sure, the BBQ is the main character, but it's nothing without its supporting cast—the sides. Right now, Mighty Quinns will ship you out a large tray of sweet potato casserole (10.5″x12.5″x 3″)—that's made with sweet potatoes mixed with pecans and maple; one large tray of mac & cheese (10.5″x12.5″x3″); and 32oz of burnt end baked beans. All of this will serve 16-20 people and will make the perfect accoutrement to whatever meat you happen to be cookin' up.
