Hot out of the smoker: the three-month old Big Apple BBQ in Glen Cove is already branching out and will soon open in Port Washington. Watch for its debut, in the next week or so, in the Main Street space where Bad Bob’s used to be.
Keep in mind, though, that the original waterfront Bad Bob's (a seasonal operation) is still up and running. And you can also get pit-smoked ribs, brisket and pulled pork at Harbor Q as well as at the long-established (1984) Hickory's.
Barbecue battles shaping up in Port W? Time will tell.
Big Apple BBQ will be at 75 Main St., 516-439-5424; Bad Bob's Barbecue is at 86 Orchard Beach Blvd., 516-883-8880; Harbor Q is at 84 Old Shore Rd., 516-883-4227; Hickory's is at 674 Port Washington Blvd., 516-883-7174.
