Fletcher's BBQ

Checked out Fletcher's BBQ which just opened in Gowanus a couple of doors down from Four and Twenty Blackbirds. Finally, some real BBQ hits this part of Brooklyn. Walk into industrial style space and can't miss huge smoker on right. Meat sold a la Fette Sau, by weight and plopped on your unadorned tray. We tried pretty much everything. Highlights were the ribs which taste of nothing but pork and smoke, the special burnt ends- super charred and fatty brisket ( basically BBQ candy) and the smoky beans which I could eat all day. Quality local beers on tap and tasty cider/rye cocktail. Biggest complaint is that tables are a bit too close together requiring you to occasionally get up to let someone by. The food, though, was spot on. I've been repeatedly disappointed by the BBQ outside of W- burg, but have to say that I'm psyched to have a local place where the meat speaks for itself, no gloppy sauce needed.
