Best Barbeque?

I recently came across this list of Long Island's Best BBQ as chosen by AOL users. It's a fairly depressing list. Many of these restaurants don't cook real barbeque. I've been to most of these places, and a couple are great but a few of them really suck.

Barbecue, barbeque or BBQ, however you spell it, is the cooking of meat for long periods of time over a low temperture wood or charcoal fire. I know I'm being a purist, but I've taken an oath to celebrate, teach, preserve, and promote barbecue as a culinary technique, sport and art form. There's so much work to do.

Here's the list. Take it for what it's worth. All opinions come from AOL. Check them out and discover the real deals among the phonies.

1. Smokin' Al's Bay Shore
2. Famous Dave's Smithtown
3. Spare Rib Commack
4. R. S. Jones Merrick
5. Spicy's BBQ Riverhead
6. Eldorado Southern BBQ Centereach
7. Turtle Crossing East Hampton
8. Farmer Bar Cutchogue

It never ceases to amaze me what a lot of restaurants try to pass off as barbecue. Meat waved in front of a grill, then laced with liquid smoke and tortured in an oven is not barbecue, no matter how nice the sign is, or how much sawdust is on the floor. Sheesh.

I hate AOL and everything that fat bastard touches.

I guess this is where people get the idea that there's no good bbq in New York.

In fact, I just typed in bbq into Citysearch for NYC. The results are depressing-- the good places don't even come up...
