Fink's Funky Chicken & Ribs

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Fink here, the Souther Pride smoker that I have I got on EBay from a restaurant supply house in Florida. When I called the manufacturer for parts info I found that it had been originally sold to a Winn Dixie in down there in 1982 or so. It is model # UXR 100 It is a Beast, it leaks smoke, makes the place hot, boy does it make the food taste good. We use cherry wood that I get from a vegetarian tree guy who keeps it stocked for a portobello sandwich and a rocky road mud tart. I have a link to Southern Pride on the restaurant website; finksfunky.net

Thanks for coming everybody, look for us at the classic carshow next sunday in River Edge Memorial Park,it is a fundraiser for the River Edge Cultural Center

Fink

PS

AC is in the works, we will probably begin installation in the next week or two

Hey Fink... Question: Why did you guys choose Finksfunky.net instead of .com? I checked, expecting some weird porn site or something (you should check out what you get if you go to fat-guy's site forgetting the hyphen), but it appears to be unregistered. You should probably register it (finksfunky.com) before some porn site does claim it. :wink:

Hey Fink... Question: Why did you guys choose Finksfunky.net instead of .com?

i checked on register.com, and it sure looks open.

register.com must use some sort of thesaurus to suggest other options. some that it gave were:

Finksfoul

Finkssmelly

finksfetid

sneakfunky

however, i wouldn't recommend naming your restaurant or website any of these. :blink:

Many of the early (dot) com website names were registered for two or three years, often by speculators and squatters.

As the bloom comes off the internet rose, many are not being renewed, and open up again. There's also a "(dot) US" suffix just out of sunrise status which may be of interest

Apparently it's easier still to dictate the conversation and in effect, kill the conversation.

the baked beans were some of the best i've ever had.

That was my impression when I went las t week. My only visit so far, but between a good steak and those beans I'm promising myself a return.

Was at Fink's last night and had something new... extremely spicy red onions on my hamburger.  It's a good thing. Try it.

what size burger, mary?

I suppose I have to live with the shame of only eating a half pound burger. With two sides and a mountain of onions.

Dined at Fink's a couple of times last week on those brutally hot days. SOmething about the heat completed the experience by making it seem like I was at some roadside smoke pit in Texas. Granted Fink's has nicer decor and I would have loved a/c but the heat added a certain atmosperic grit. And it didn't hurt that the pulled pork was so dang tasty. The brisket was also quite good. Love that cherry wood smoke. The seasoned fries were a bit heavy on the paprika, though.

The screamin' chicken sauce was nice on the pulled chicken.

I'm looking forward to many return visits. Too bad the kitchen is so darned big that they can't add any tables.

I suppose I could wait for Fink to explain this, but the reason they can't have any tables has to do with parking spaces. I recall (please feel free to correct me if I have my figures incorrect) Fink telling us that he is only allowed 2.5 seats per space (town ordinances) which yielded 10 seats. They decided to concentrate on carry-out and put in a counter to accomodate those that wanted to eat their take-out, in.

Hey Fink, check out the Star Ledger today. It appears you have no competion, at least in the northern part of cental NJ.

I'm a NYC expat. Since coming to the darkside, as many of my freinds have said, I've found that most good things in NYC are made in NJ.
