Throw a graduation party with honors.


They got a liberal arts degree, but You majored in meat.


about us

Delaney Barbecue came to be when Dan Delaney’s love of barbecue became fanaticism. After tasting the best Texas brisket of his life, Delaney decided to (illegally) haul a 18’ foot smoker from Texas to Brooklyn. A series of BBQ pop-ups dubbed “Brisketlab” followed, and finally, to much anticipation, he opened BrisketTown, a cozy restaurant in Williamsburg serving up slow-smoked 'cue.

The restaurant has received a fair share of accolades and awards, appeared on many round-ups ranking the best barbecue in New York City, and was nominated for the James Beard Award, the highest honor in the culinary world.

Our Style of Barbecue

For some, barbecue is hamburgers and hot dogs in a backyard. To us, it's America's first, most classic style of cooking. Different regions of the country have distinct styles and flavors of barbecue, but one thing they all share is the amount of time, love, and dedication that goes into smoking each mouth-watering bite. 

We focus on recreating the type of BBQ you'd find in Central-Texas, which includes slow-smoked brisket, juicy pork ribs, and hot link sausages that snap when you eat them. True to form, we season simply, just a little salt and pepper, then smoke for up to 16 hours, using nothing but white oak and a whole lot of patience. 


Four years away from home is a long time. Serve a graduation meal worthy of the journey.
Here's what we can do for you:


We’ll design a feast featuring our slow smoked meats that can be served table side or simply dropped off. If you’d like, we can also start with small bites and end with southern pies.


If you’re BYOB'ing the shindig, that’s groovy. But if you'd like, we can set up a beer and wine bar, or bring in bartenders that can mix any kind of cocktail your guests can dream up.



If you’re planning a full blown party, we can hire waiters, mixologists, and even make suggestions for DJs for you. That means all you have to do is show up (basically.)


We’re happy to coordinate renting the tables, chairs, napkins—everything down to the forks you and your guests will use. Just let us know if you’d like us to help out.

Eating here is like having some kind of unimaginably delicious meat form of tequila. You’ll be giddy and want to hug strangers from joy, maybe lick brisket grease off their bodies. Whoever described it as “meat candy” got it spot on.

The long-smoked brisket was splendid, crusted with a blackened spice rub that sealed in moisture, which wept as the meat was sliced. It was every bit as good as you get in Texas.
— Robert Sietsema, The Village Voice
