The moment has finally arrived; well, almost. While Townline BBQ
doesn’t officially open to the public until July 19th, we’ve managed to get our
hands on the menu. But first, let’s do a little background check: Owner Mark Smith & executive chef Joe Realmuto (of Nick & Toni’s Hamptons fame) set out on an extensive roadtrip across Texas to sample the Lone Star State’s best barbecue joints. After doing their proper due diligence – pitmaster Joe Realmuto completed an intensive bbq class, properly mastering the artistry of low & slow cooking – the two have returned to the beach to peddle their newfound ‘cue cooking. They even picked up a few already christened smokers to get the job done right.
While Alison’s by the Beach is all but a memory, what’s emerged in its place is a down & dirty roadhouse pitstop in Sagaponack for weary weekenders to feast and do a little finger lickin’. Like nothing the Hamptons has seen before, the space is nothing less than down & dirty: the space is decked in unfinished woodbeam ceilings, long communal tables with wood benches to match and dangling bare bulb fixtures. It’s even got indoor/outdoor seating and a centrally located hand-washing station to boot. Let’s indulge an interior shot:
Behold: all things smoked, rubbed. Let’s have a little look at the menu, shall we?
Address: 3593 Townline Road, Sapagonpack NY
