Finally tried the newish barbecue joint in East Williamsburg/Bushwick, Arrogant Swine. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this place from friends, but I thought it was pretty good.

Got the Outside Brown (chunks of Western North Carolina Outside Brown Shoulder $11) and East Carolina Whole Hog (think pulled pork with cracklings on top $12). Both really good with the different BBQ sauces they have.

Their bar has lots of craft beer. The outdoor seating has some nice picnic benches.

Only thing that sucks is that seems far from the train …or at least it’s pretty far out in a very industrial area.

    When food blogs collide! The fellow who started Arrogant Swine, Uncle Ho (Tyson Ho), documented the whole process.

    He had to locate it out there in the industrial area, because otherwise the smoke from the BBQ would have bothered shops/residential areas and he wouldn’t have been able to get a business license.
