Take one gander at this hulking beef rib at Mighty Quinn’s in New York City and you’ll understand the prehistoric comparisons. Headed up by Pit Master Hugh Mangum, this meat centric paradise is an amalgamation of Texas and Memphis style barbecue techniques, resulting in what he calls as ‘NYC BBQ’.
One of the feature items at Mighty Quinn’s is the Brontosaurus Rib, a massive 6-pound beef plate short rib cut that’s rubbed with Hungarian paprika, salt, and pepper. To get the Jurassic-sized portion to become fall-off-the-bone tender requires 12 hours in the smoker, cooked low and slow.
The outcome? One giant excuse to eat like a Flintstone for a day. The duality of the Brontosaurus Ribs’ sheer size and its resulting supple meat makes for an unforgettable dining experience already. Pair that up with Mighty Quinn’s other excellent bbq offerings and you’d swear you were farther down south in the U.S.
