Roadside barbecue is a big thing in some parts of South Jersey. If you’re headed down Routes 40, 49, 30, or 206, there’s a good chance that you’ll come across someone tending a smoker and an oil drum. One of the most iconic roadside barbecue spots in New Jersey is Uncle Dewey’s Outdoor Barbecue Pavilion. It’s only open on weekends from May-October but it’s absolutely a must-visit.
