Hard work is also the mantra of Hometown Barbecue founder Billy Durney, who constantly repeats, "Stay humble, stay focused, stay hungry." Durney opened in Allapattah an outpost of what's considered the best barbecue in New York City. Here, you'll find all of the Texas signatures, including butter-soft brisket ($14 per half-pound) with a deep-magenta smoke ring rippled with juicy fat. There are massive heavily marbled beef ribs ($30 per pound) alongside thick-cut bacon encrusted in a fiery jerk seasoning ($7 per slice), as well as a refreshing coleslaw, rich-as-hell mac 'n' cheese, and jalapeño-studded corn pudding ($6 each). The house-made cheddar jalapeño sausage ($7 per link) is also worthy of attention thanks in no small part to the molten pockets of sharp cheese riddling each juicy link. Insider tip: Dinner reservations can be hard to come by, so drop in for lunch, when the restaurant serves its food in a fast-casual setting. Order your barbecue at the counter, and a server will deliver it to your table. Even if the line seems long, the service is efficient, so you'll be chowing down in no time.
