When Pigs Fly, the easternmost barbecue shack on Long Island, plans to stay open through December. And, starting next week, the savory spot will be adding discount deals to the menu.

On Mondays, you can order a full rack of ribs and get one-half rack more gratis; "taco Tuesdays" translate into buy four, get two more free; Thursday, barbecued chicken, buy one, get another half free; Friday, fried chicken, buy eight pieces, get four more free; and on Sunday, the theme is chicken wings -- buy 16, receive eight more free.

While tooling about Montauk, I came upon a little hole-in-the-wall barbecue spot called When Pigs Fly. As I later found out, it was just opened by Michael Antolini (formerly of Adam’s Rib in West Babylon) and his wife Lisa.

What they're serving isn’t slow-smoked barbecue but, rather, slow-baked and spice-rubbed. The menu also offers fried chicken, ribs and sandwiches. A lobster roll, too.

I ordered a pulled pork sandwich, big shards of tender meat in a vinegar-based barbecue sauce. Not bad. Can’t say I was impressed with the accompanying fries, little more than just a vehicle for ketchup and salt.

This is a grab and go kind of place; no tables, just a bench. If you’re beach-bound, though, it may be just what you need.
