The Smoke Joint is a local little BBQ spot in Fort Greene Brooklyn. This place has great food and a nice drink selection. I went with a friend for dinner the other day and I had the Black Angus Hot Dog topped with pulled pork… They have their own dogs made with a special blend and claim it is the best in Brooklyn. With quite a few other places popping up claiming the same thing it makes for a tough decision but like the menu says – “if you’re gonna have a hot dog, you might as well have the best hot dog in Brooklyn and then you might as well top it with pulled pork, beef or chicken” I can definitely recommend the pulled pork with pickles topped with their spicy BBQ sauce! I am also a big fan of their fries dusted with their house rub.

Since the economy is “soaring” I have been looking for cheap, good eats when in the grocery. When I saw hickory smoked bacon and Hebrew National all beef hot dogs on sale I knew exactly what I was making for lunch!
I started by cooking two strips of bacon in a small skillet. When the bacon was done cooking, I placed the hot dogs in the grease to cook. If you have never eaten a fried hot dog (you really should) this is almost better since I essentially fried them IN BACON FAT! I spread mayo on one side of the bun, cheddar on the other then topped each dog with bacon and ketchup. Wow.
Paired with a Pabst and a little football on this cool New York afternoon was terrific!
So as some of you know my brother and I are off to Thailand tomorrow. This week we tried to soak up some good old “American” food before we go. What better than a chili cheese dog? We hit Sparky’s on Lafayette and Bleeker Street. (RIP I miss you) Pictured above is my “Sparky’s Dog” which is a chili cheese dog with onions and crumpled bacon on top. Add a side of jalepeno-cheese fries and wash it all down with a cold beer. Now that’s dinner, or at least it was on Monday night!
