Fodor's Review

Everyone's gone bonkers for the supersmoky Midwest American BBQ beef ribs and pulled-pork-in-a-bun combos at this Soho trendsetter. A tiny, no-reservations corner-site joint, Pitt Cue has only 18 basement seats and eight counter stools in the ground-floor bourbon-and-rye elbow-tight crush bar—little wonder line ups snake down the street. Most order the £12–£13.50 finger-lickin' spreads, which come with green slaw and house pickles in enamel Shawshank Redemption baker-wear dishes. Charred rib-tips, pig's-head sausages, smoked jowl, brisket burgers, and bone marrow butter mash sides are other temptations, but the devout devour the sloppy sliders and sticky ribs with their mucky paws. The secret to Pitt Cue's famous BBQ pork and beef ribs? A stonkin' coal-and-woodchip smoker, free-range Tamworth, Middle White, and Mangalitsa pork prime cuts from Cornwall, and dry rubs and marinades, which include smoked paprika, Sriracha chili sauce, blackstrap molasses, and apricot preserves.
