Hamilton Pork serves the best BBQ in Jersey City, and while that’s kind of like being the most impressive performer at drunken karaoke, this is where you should go if you want slow-cooked meat. Come with a group, order a meat sampler to share, and make sure to include the intensely smoky, salty pork belly that’s cooked 16 hours. The industrial-looking space next to Hamilton Inn offers drink deals during Happy Hour, which you should take advantage of in the big backyard.
