You can’t miss the Farella brothers of Brothers Barbecue and Brothers Smokehouse because each brother in the trio stands well over six feet tall. Their contagious smiles will draw you in, and their barbecue will get you hooked. We spoke with the pitmaster of the operation, Chris Farella, about how the family got into the barbecue business, what it was like opening during the pandemic and what the future may hold for the brothers. You can dine or get takeout from either restaurant in New Windsor, NY or Ramsey, NJ. You can also buy Brothers merch online here. As told to Sarah Strong.
