Is Big W's in Pawling NY still in business Wed, 05/10/06 10:16 AM (permalink)
Haven't heard anything about this roadside stand in a while. Does anyone know if they're still operating. If so, what are their days/hours of operation, and are they near the Pawling train station? If not, what happened?

      Yeah, I've seen that link, but I believe it's a few years old.

        Re-reading the article just gave me the idea of calling Palling Collision, and they say he's still smoking, but they weren't sure of the days/times.

                  I picked up a few racks of ribs for family & friends when he started out; the unanimous decision was "oversmoked". The smoke flavor completely overwhelmed the meat.
                  But there were almost no other BBQ options in the area only a few short years ago, and it seemed to be a good start. I've never bothered to go back, if that tells you anything.

                        Still one of the best BBQ joints in the NE. Like to take the ribs home and reheat on the gas grill to get a combination of flavors. Big W's main competition is from Wood's in nearby Bantam, CT. Have had good BBQ from both.
