America's Best New BBQ

America's Best New BBQ: Standard

Courtesy of Standard DC

Standard BBQ, D.C.

One part Bavarian beer garden and one part barbecue joint with brats and sauerkraut, pulled-pork sandwiches, and coleslaw add up to a serious crowd-pleaser. Chef Tad Curtz doesn’t pledge allegiance to any one style of barbecue; pork comes with a North Carolina–style vinegar sauce, while brisket gets a dollop of smoky, sweet tomato-based sauce. But it all gets smoked in his southern-pride oven using a combination of mesquite and applewood chips. For adventurous eaters, the thing to order is the smoked pig’s head (call in advance).
