Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue in Gowanus is precisely what you expect from a small Brooklyn barbecue joint: Long wooden tables, an Über-friendly staff, and sustainable practices. The meat, which is smoked on a pit from Mesquite, Texas, using maple and red oak from upstate New York, is all locally sourced from farm cooperatives that raise free-grazing animals sans hormones. The result? Sticky, smoky St. Louis pork ribs, pork steak three-ways (go for the Asian-influenced, slightly sweet Char Siu), and—for those looking for something a bit lighter—chicken quarters. Those are somewhat bland, but they’re instantly elevated with Fletcher’s tangy, thick barbecue sauce, found on your table. As for sides, pickles are brined on the premises, the macaroni and cheese is buttery, and the syrupy baked beans are perfectly laced with bacon.
