Mighty Quinn's: Has NYC Barbecue Come of Age?

Maybe I went on an off night but I was rather disappointed. The brisket was dry, the sausage was odd (couldn't wrap my head around a smoked, italian sausage), and the beef rib (my favorite thing in the world, and almost $25 for one) was dry and stringy. There was almost no smoke ring and it tasted slightly bitter. Almost as if their smoker was at too high a temp. I was so excited about eating there too, maybe I'll give it another shot.

When did you realize you could really cook?

When my boyfriend took a bite of fried chicken, sat back, and said wow.

I knew I was a good baker when I was a kid. I had yeast breads down when i was around 13 or 14, and made my first wedding cake at 16. And I've always been pretty good at following recipes but I think my "moment" was when I decided to just cook what I wanted to eat without a recipe and my guests said it was the best thing they've ever eaten. Now that I have that confidence in cooking I feel like I can make anything.
