Highest-rated Barbecue Restaurants around Albany and NYC

Image

Cooking meat (or even veggies) over a low and slow over a heat source is the only qualification for barbecue. But this American favorite dates back to indigenous cultures and was picked up by early Spanish colonizers who also gave it the name. The cooking style now goes by barbacoa. 

Today, barbecue dishes can be found across the U.S., with many cities and regions boasting their own take (all claiming to have the best). Since barbecue meat spends hours upon hours cooking, restaurants are a go-to source for many Americans who would rather not spend all day and all night tending to their flames. Stacker compiled a list of the highest-rated barbecue restaurants around the Capital District and NYC on Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor rankings factor in the average rating and number of reviews. Some restaurants on the list may have recently closed.
