Baristaville locals have been enjoying Lawrence and Kim Hackney’s smokin’ good ribs and chicken for months. But The Star Ledger’s Pete Genovese has always thought of North Jersey as a “barbecue wasteland,” that is, until he discovered “the real deal”, at The Wood Pit (Just wait until The NY Times finds out.):
Put the Wood Pit, and Montclair, on your barbecue speed-dial. Next time, I think I’ll buy a gallon of that hot sauce, smother it on whatever I can find at home, and be a very happy guy.
One bite of the tender, delicious dry-rubbed pork ribs (large, 10-bone dinner, $21.95, with two sides) and you know you’ve hit the barbecue jackpot. Add some of the outstanding homemade sauce, and there’s just no need to head south — South Jersey, South Carolina, wherever — for good barbecue.
Thanks Pete, but we already knew that.
