BBQ in or near central CT

Hello!
I'm jonesin for some BBQ in or near central CT. I've done Little Marks Big Barbeque, Danny's Taste of Texas, Black Eyed Sallys, Smokin' with Chris. I have no desire to return to those places this time around. (nothing bad to say, just been there-done that)

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about:
Uncle Willie's in Waterbury--I've read several things about this place and I'm tempted to drive from West Hartford to Waterbury but is it worth it?

Smokin' Rock BBQ in Rocky Hill? The menu looks good.

Anywhere else?

I appreciate your suggestions. I'm bascially a brisket, pulled pork, variety of sides kinda person. I'm not huge into ribs myself but whomever I drag out for BBQ might be.

thanks!
