Straight outta Queens and conjuring up the old Pearson's which was coincidentally in the same spot. Alchemy Texas focuses on the Texas style 'cue of it's namesake. The "sports bar" locale is dingy and local, but the barbecue is rightous and some unusual cuts of meat are to be found here in the international 'hood of Jackson Heights. Smoked prime rib and frog legs are not usually found on barbecue menus. The smoked prime rib which he gave to me before it was fully smoked was "outrageous" and a definite treat. The brisket was also pretty amazing especially the carmalized ends. The sides of "Boston Beans", creamed spinach and potato salad were all very good. This is one unusual destination in "multi-culti" Jackson Heights brought to us by the John Brown Smokehouse people and definitely worth the trip.
