On our last day in New York City and on the subway to JFK airport, we got off in Brooklyn to visit one of New York’s famous restaurants The Smoke Joint. At first look at the restaurant’s name, it sounds like a place you can go to get high, but I promise you it’s not such a place at all. The Smoke Joint is only one of New York’s most famous Barbecue Restaurants. Guy Fieri showed up there in one of his episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives to try out some of their BBQ hot wings.

The BBQ at The Smoke Joint is very good and the prices are not too high. I ordered the pulled pork Sandwich with spicy french fries and it is some of the best BBQ I have eaten.
If pulled pork is not your thing, that is okay, they have a huge menu. You can view their menu here. They have beef brisket, chicken wings, hot links, smoked chicken, catfish, shrimp, and more. They have the typical sides you would find in a BBQ Restaurant such as baked beans, collard greens, coleslaw, corn bread and others. You will feel like you’re in the deep south while in Brooklyn.
So, if you taking the subway from Manhattan’s Fulton Street Station to JFK, you can hop off on the Lafayette Avenue Station and walk two blocks to your northwest and arrive at The Smoke Joint. It’s the perfect way to end your New York City vacation.
