FIND, FOLLOW, AND CONNECT WITH US ONLINE THE HASHTAG Summer is here, which means outdoor-cooking season is in full swing. To celebrate, we asked some pros to take a stand on that hotly contested, age-old question: "What's the #bestbbq in the country?" “Whole-hog smoked pork from PIG WHISTLE IN FAYETTEVILLE, NC.” @andreareusing Andrea Reusing, Lantern, Chapel Hill, NC “SALT LICK IN AUSTIN for Texas-style BBQ and the best sausage in the country. And anything from Mike Mills. because of the gentle applewood smoke on his baby-back ribs. It makes for a really balanced rib.” @chefsymon Michael Symon, The Chew “Hey @bonappetit! Shout-out to PODNAH’S PIT up the street @podnahsbbq: 1/2 rack spareribs, white bread and slaw, plus jalapehos & onion.” @NaomiPomeroy Naomi Pomeroy, Beast, Portland, OR “OKLAHOMA JOE'S IN KANSAS CITY. The smoky, vinegary-style Addicting Pork Ribs w/collard greens is…

so, i know this joint…

WHENEVER I’M GOING TO GRILL, the first thing I usually do is pick up the phone and call Maria. She runs things down at Florence Prime Meat Market, a tiny butcher shop on a side street in Greenwich Village. Screen door, sawdust on the floor, been open since 1936. Benny Pizzuco, a longtime butcher, owns it, but Maria is the one behind the counter, surrounded by a bunch of guys with thick forearms, standing over big, worn-down butcher blocks, carbon-steel knives in hand. My order is almost always the same: dry-aged, thick-cut rib steaks, bone in. And however many people I tell Maria I’m having over, she usually portions out enough for two more. Some folks would call this upselling, but when the meat is this tasty, I don’t argue. And that’s the…

the ba arsenal: grilling by the dozen

YOU KNOW THE R RULE? The one that says you should only eat oysters in months with the letter r? Ignore it. Grilled oysters, the fire concentrating their briny flavor, are my barbecue go-to. Here’s how to make them yours: Buy a few dozen oysters (you want big ones that won’t dry out). Once your grill hits medium-high, fill the grate with as many bivalves, cupped side down, as will fit. Cover, and half a beer later (about two minutes), the shells pop open. That’s it; they’re done. Transfer to a platter, remove the top shells, and slurp away. I serve mine with hot sauce, but a dab of herb butter works, too. Repeat. And crack another beer. It’s summer. —ANDREW KNOWLTON Find our recipe for herb butter at…

food-porn star

So, you have an “alterego” Twitter feed that chronicles what you eat [@NPHFoodPorn]. Have you always been obsessed? In my 20s, I mostly ate burritos and nachos, with the occasional burger. It was my better half, David [Burtka], who made me adventurous. Do you have guilty pleasures? In-N-Out burgers. But not too often. I have to watch my girlish figure. David is a classically trained chef who worked at Babbo. What’s the best thing he cooks? He makes a Babbo-ish Bolognese: Fresh pasta is key, and a sauce with veal, pork, pancetta, and San Marzano tomatoes, finished with butter. That may be my meal if I was gonna get in the electric chair. Do you help out much in the kitchen? I’m the sous and the dishwasher. Someone’s gotta do it. Are you guys big grillers? I always thought…
