It's always fun to try someplace new, but it should be at least as good as what's down the street from me at Taino Smokehouse in Middletown. Their brisket is consistently EXCELLENT and WE LOVE IT! Also a big fan of Little Mark's from way back.
So what about any of the following? Can you compare/contrast/weigh in?
Bear's Smokehouse - Windsor
Flagstead Smokehouose - Farmington
Chester's Barbecue - Groton
Taino Smokehouse - Middletown
Little Mark's Big BBQ - Vernon
Anything else worth a special trip? Please do tell.
