As a deep souther now living in NJ am always looking for great traditional bbq. I will give my approval to Blue Bayou in Clark on Raritan Ave.
First indicator: not slathered in too much sauce or better yet, no sauce at all. That how they do it a BB. Four or 5 sauces to choose from if you like some to dip your q.
Second indicator: Tender and still moist meat. Good stuff
Third indicator: Home made Potato Salad!
Great spot, friendly, chatty staff.
Will be back!
