Friday is the best day of the week because that’s the day the legendary Sikorski Meat Market throws its freshly smoked charcuterie onto the counter while it’s still warm.
All from the pig, of course, but you can select short ribs, spare ribs, loin, and sometimes other swine-bearing treats. Only a couple of dollars for a couple of ribs–I don’t remember how much exactly, because the receipt became so clotted with grease, that I couldn’t think of sticking it into my wallet. 603 Manhattan Avenue, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, 718-389-6181
