Mighty Quinn's barbecue stand attracts the longest lines at Smorgasburg. And now, pitmaster Hugh Mangum and restaurateur Micha Magid are bringing their Texas and Carolinas-inspired barbecue to the people of the East Village. The brick and mortar of Mighty Quinn's opened earlier today in the space that formerly housed Vandaag (and a million other restaurants). Mangum is smoking all his meat in a pit the size of most people's livings rooms, using oak, apple, and cherry wood.

Because Mangum and his crew are smoking large quantities of meat, and serving it in a counter-service setting, they can keep the prices low — on the opening menu, all the single portions of meat are priced under $9. To drink, there are eight beers on tap, plus about the same number of craft beers by the bottle. Last week, Hugh told Eater that he was ordering a lot of meat for the opening this week to avoid those dreaded meat shortages. Take a peek at the menu, and do send any reports our way.
