Diehard barbecue fans are a tough bunch and they’re just as likely as not to extol the virtues of a roadside ’cue stand. And we can’t blame ’em — we’ve done the same thing in these very pages. So when the big ’n flashy Billy Joe’s opened on the Newburgh waterfront earlier this year, we knew it would be a hootin’, hollerin’ good time, but we weren’t sure how the ribs would measure up. Turns out, they are fall-off-the-bone fabulous! Meats are hand-rubbed three times and you can order either the standard pork ribs or the more unusual beef ones. Throw in reasonable prices, big portions, line dancing, craft beers, and stunning river views and you’ll be hollering yee-haw all the way home.
