The Dinosaur BBQ, home to world-class bbq and blues, started in Syracuse, NY in 1988 and has since opened up restaurants in Rochester, Harlem, and Troy. Co-owner and original pitmaster John Stage says he believes bbq is the most difficult type of restaurant business. "Barbecue ain't easy, It will kick your ass sometimes and it will humble you," Stage said. "You never want to think you know it all, because that's when you're done. I know more about barbecue now than I did ten years ago, and I'll know more about it in ten years than I do now. And that's a beautiful thing."
