WHERE TO FIND THE BEST BARBECUE NEAR WAYNE, NJ

J ‘N’ C BBQ

Where’s the beef? It’s here at J ‘n’ C BBQ at 1342 NJ-23 in Butler. It’s hard to know where to start here because everything they offer is so delicious. But let’s start with the appetizers: you’re going to miss a real treat if you don’t go for their cast iron cornbread. The homemade mac and cheese is too good for the kids to keep it all to themselves. Order some for yourself!

If you’re in at lunchtime, the BBQ sandwich, loaded mac and cheese, and BBQ tacos are wildly popular around here, and you’ll quickly find out why when you taste them. But you can also get dinner all day, and that’s where the biggest meat plates can be found. Choose a dinner plate or get it by the pound: melt-in-your-mouth Angus brisket, pulled pork, and more. Don’t forget the extra sauce.

SMOKE SHACK BBQ AND BURGERS

You’ll want to spend a lot of time hanging out at 402 Ringwood Ave once you taste their food. We sure do. Voted New Jersey’s best BBQ and offering Bring Your Own Beer (please drink responsibly), Smoke Shack is really popular, so get here early. They do catering if you have an event, but if you want to stop in for lunch or dinner, we can’t recommend it too highly.

They offer chopped chicken, pulled pork, and chopped brisket BBQ sandwiches, and you can choose all kinds of add ons, cheese options, and from six different sauces. Get platters of all those meats, if you prefer, as well as baby back ribs, St. Louis style ribs, or combos. To keep the whole family happy there are also amazing burgers, smoked hot dogs, specialty sandwiches, and lots of great sides.

ALL THE SMOKE BARBECUE

It’s just 9 miles to 64 1/2 Market St. in Clifton, and you should go there now. This is New Jersey’s best spot for smoked brisket, pork skin, collard greens, and smoked beans. All the smoke only uses high-quality ingredients and takes a lot of pride in delivering an authentic BBQ experience. It shows. Their sauces are so good they sell them by the bottle to meet demand.

Order all the smoked meats, from brisket to pork to turkey, by the 1/2 pound, the pound, the platter, or in sandwiches. You can also get a whole or half chicken, amazing chicken wings, and sides you won’t be able to stop eating, like the mac and cheese, the collard greens, the root beer baked beans, and the vanilla sweet potato casserole. Mama’s cucumber salad is definitely worth ordering, too.
