If you think that some slow-smoked ribs, chicken, brisket or pulled pork could ease your post-storm angst, know that several Long Island BBQ spots are up and smoking

Here's the rundown so far: Mara’s Homemade in Syosset, Smokin’ Al’s Famous BBQ Joint in Bay Shore and Massapequa Park and Swingbellys BBQ in Lynbrook are back in business. You'll find 'cue at Big Daddy's in Massapequa Park, too. In Kings Park, Dixie's Smokehouse fired up its smokers yesterday. And  BobbiQue in Patchogue remains in its pre-Sandy state, never having lost its power.
