I don't know if you've seen the article in Newsday, but the former pitmaster of Papa Rick's has hooked up with a partner and opened a BBQ joint in Glen Cove.
Papa Rick's was one of the first BBQ places around here and specialized in Texas style 'Q. They operated out of a small roadside shack in Syosset, near 135.
I'm hoping for good things.
If any of you have tried them out, please post about it.
