Barbecue food is always finger-lickin’ good. And when it’s all topped with barbecue sauce it’s 100 times better. But which is the Best Barbecue Restaurant on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted Smokin Al’s the Best Barbeque Restaurant on Long Island in the 2021 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest for the second year in a row!

If you ask Smokin Al what makes a perfect barbecue, it certainly isn’t putting food on a grill over charcoal or gas fire and then calling it “BBQ.” Known for offering the top BBQ experience on this side of the Northeast, Smokin Al’s in Massapequa Park delivers on its reputation. While its ribs take up to seven hours to cook, its brisket and pork take approximately 12 to 13 hours to make. Smokin Al has worked tirelessly and has traveled everywhere from the Carolinas to Texas to Tennessee to create out-of-this-world barbecued food along with sauces and succulent side and gluten-free dishes to pair them with. At Smokin Al’s, your dining experience will be treated with true Southern flair and Southern hospitality!

Smokin Al’s is located at 4847 Merrick Rd. in Massapequa Park. It can be reached at 516-799-4900 or smokinals.com
