As fun as it is to slow-cook your own barbecue, sometimes going to a barbeque joint is just a little more fun.

And time-saving!

Fortunately for us in Jersey, there are a ton of great barbeque joints!

For example, a few weeks ago I told you about the best barbecue ribs in New Jersey, which can be found in Green Brook New Jersey.

You can check that out here.

Right here in Ocean County, you can grab some great barbecue from Dickies Barbecue Pit in Whiting, and Smokies Craft Barbeque in Bayville.

However, did you know that the little town of Point Pleasant, which is known for its world-class family beach town, is also home to some of the best barbeque joints around?

I would have never guessed!

When I think of Point Pleasant I think of walking around its quaint downtown, taking a stroll and checking out all the houses lining Jenks Boardwalk, or grabbing a cold beer overlooking the ocean.

But, experts are saying that Point Pleasant is home to three barbeque joints that are considered to be world-class!

Make sure you're nice and hungry, and maybe grab some wet naps because we're taking a tour of Point Pleasant's best barbeque joints.

According to Only In Your State, there are three world-famous barbeque joints in Point Pleasant.

Jersey Shore Barbeque, which smokes all of its meats onsite, has some absolutely insane barbecue sandwiches that are too good to pass up.

The second spot that is a must-visit for solid barbeque is Shore Points Barbeque.

It's a casual barbecue joint, and in addition to solid barbecue, the fried chicken is also a fan favorite.

And lastly, Only In Your State claims that Martells Tiki Bar on Jenks Boardwalk has one of the best pulled-pork sandwiches around.

I would have never thought to go to Martells for some solid barbeque, but that's what's so cool about Jersey, you never know what you'll find!
