i took the kids out for a little road trip today, only fourty minutes from home but i guess that qualifies. stopped in at poppa ricks bbq on jerico tpk. in syosset right on the border of naussa and suffolk. it was the most authentic place that i have found on long island yet. tiny, tin roof, great smoke wafting about, friendly folk. i told them about the site. portions were huge. ribs just a bit TOO smokey. pulled pork so good i had i piece stuck between my teeth and i did not pick it out ... on purpose. they had one of my favorite sides. mangos with peppers and onions. give them a shot if you are out this way. www.popparicks.com. enjoy

Pappa Ricks is an interesting place. He's right on the border of Nassau and Suffolk with his trailer/kitchen in Nassau and his tables in Suffolk county. (Nassau's rules for mobile kitchens are much more lax than suffolk county's) When I was last there we were talking about his desire to compete. He says he's been trying to do it for 20 years but can never find the time. When he retires he says. His stuff isn't bad for commercial que, but I think he'd get his clock cleaned in competetion. Didn't tell him that tho. Why spoil his dream?

but did he get the pork chops turned in on time.??? :mrgreen:


ok that was the LAST time I'll say that.. :wink:


maybe. 8)



last time I spoke to him.. he cooked EVERYTHING over mesquite.. Which would explain the "too smokey" review. He loves mesquite..andbethefirst to admit it. Ifoundthestuffdecent for commercial..but to me too.. the mesquite was a little to strong.

28.50 does sound like a lot but it will feed 3-4 hungry adults easily. Dry rubbed with sauce served on the side....excellent !!!

Newsday ran a short article about Pappa Rick's several weeks ago. It seems that the Town of Oyster Bay started legal proceedings to shut them down. Something about not having the proper permits to operate a food establishment at that location.
