COLD SPRING, N.Y. -- For meat lovers, there's nothing like a good barbecue joint. Burnt ends. Tender falling-off-the-bone ribs. Fatty morsels of brisket. A drip-worthy sauce.

Cue the Beef: It's "smokin good" at this nondescript joint where you'll find Texas-style dry-rubbed, hickory-smoked brisket (marbled or lean), sausage (spicy or mild) and oh-so-meaty ribs -- along with a host of sides such as smoked corn on the cob, Frito pie and jalapeño mac ‘n’ cheese. To keep the Lone Star state in your heart -- and on your tastebuds -- there's even Lone Star beer.
