Even the best grillers need a night off so take a break and head to any of these 3 New Jersey BBQ spots.

Best BBQ Restaurants in New Jersey, According to Food & Wine

Henri's Hotts Barbeque in Hammonton

"The joint has quietly become one of the best places for barbecue anywhere near Philadelphia, mostly because of those ribs, smoked out back over oak and hickory, generously lacquered with Henri's own nicely balanced but relatively sweet sauce. Nothing fancy, but entirely memorable; an ideal stop on your way down the Shore."

Christine's House of Kingfish Barbecue in Shamong

"The sauce is more like a bright, savory tomato gravy, unlike anything you've probably ever had on ribs."

The Hambone Opera in Lawrence

"Be sure to stop at the Trenton Farmers Market, where Jeff McKay has been turning out as close to great brisket as can be found in New Jersey, smoked over local cherry wood, since 2013. His no-frills operation, The Hambone Opera, is also responsible for some fine baby backs — no sauce, it's not needed."
