Woo hoo!  They included The Joint in New Orleans.  I live a block from there.

Not a definitive list if Bullock's BBQ in Durham isn't on it. They did include The Pit in Raleigh, but Bullock's is better.

I had Dinosaur BBQ when I was on business near Syracuse.

Hands down the best BBQ I have ever, EVER had.

I'll have to try the place in Portland next time I am up there.

I've been to the Dinosaur BBQ, Rochester location. It was delicious.

BBQ Buffet? Sign me up!

usually bbq pics are not the prettiest things to look at but they had some really nice ones in there.

The best BBQ I ever had was a place close to where I grew up. Bob's BBQ in Ada Okla, people used to fly in from all over to the the airport near by and walk over and get Bob's. They would get more to go. There was a map with thumb tacks that showed all of the places people were from. Everywhere, every state had several tacks. The original owner died and it passed hands a few times, but it just was never the same and last I heard was closed. Really sad.

Only one place from Memphis on there? Shenanigans. The Joint has some good cue for New Orleans, but we aren't known for good barbecue. Squeal on Oaks Street is pretty good, too, but neither of them are as good as some of the places I hit in Memphis when I'm up there.
 
2012-09-18 04:23:57 PM
I need to take a few weeks off and make the list.

Hey boss...

Any BBQ list that includes more places North of theMason-Dixon and West of the Mississippi then fromTennessee or the Carolinas is a total fail. Sweet potato fires? Fark that noise.

Food evolves, and sometimes places do improve upon the original.

Kinda like mixing wasabi into the soy sauce.

Cozy Corner? Good... no Bar-B-Que Shop? Fail. Best Bar-B-Que in Memphis and, by extension, the entire known universe.

I live down the street from JMueller. I really need to go sometime and try their beef ribs. Mmm...

No. Don't do that. It's wrong. Not to mention that means you're using that powdered paste stuff, and not actual wasabi. And that makes baby Jesus cry.

Saw Bourdain's show on him and Franklin. I want to give beef ribs a whirl in the smoker. I'm pleased with my po'k ribs and almost so with po'k butt and brisket so it's time to try something new.

Anyone got a load of post oak they wouldn't mind parting with?

Salt Lick sucks. And they didn't bring their sauce when they catered my friend's wedding - they went to the grocery store and bought some. For this they will never be forgiven.

City Market in Luling is the best BBQ to have ever existed, ever.
 
2012-09-18 06:00:22 PM
You know how i know this list sucks.

They have N/Y as a place for best bbq.

Gotta mention Louie Mueller's in Taylor Tx. If you go on a Saturday, be prepared to wait, but it's worth every minute.

Holy balls, did a skinnyhead write this?
 
2012-09-18 06:03:54 PM
Ive made a couple of trips to KC in the last few months. I had both Oklahoma Joes and Jack Stack and thought both of them were meh to sub-par.

My guess is Kansas City barbecue is less about the meat and more about the sauce. While the sauce was ok, too sweet and too thick for my tastes, the meat alone was quite bland.

Slows is not good... Not even remotely.

BBQ is hit or miss even at great places. It's something that's much better done at home, over a long weekend. You have control of everything and can guarantee consistency. The main problem I have with rib joints is dryness, sauce can't fix a dry rib.
 
2012-09-18 06:06:12 PM
Rudy or ruby gas station BBQ joint near pikes peak was the best bbq I have had, other than my own. Whits in hartselle, AL is good also, the smoked turkey and white sauce!

Ah, you see, this is a BBQ list that focuses on whether the BBQ is any good. If you wanted one that focused on geographic location and whether the South Will Rise Again or some political shiat, then you're looking at the wrong article, and are maybe in the wrong tab.
 
2012-09-18 06:06:54 PM
I wish Phil's in San Diego was included. Had to try that place for myself a couple of months ago. Left impressed, especially considering it was in SD. Glad to see at least Baby Blues was on there.
 
2012-09-18 06:07:58 PM
Baby blues is alright for the meat. The meat varies from "meh" to pretty dang good. But their corn bread is insanely good.

You shut your whore mouth!

I live within a 10 minute drive of The Salt Lick and it is still amazing BBQ. The problem is that they have gotten way too busy. It is much easier for locals like me to call ahead and order for take-out than it is to eat there and deal with the drunken assholes from Austin.

The list is missing Tim and Bingo's from Lubbock, most people don't know it but their sliced beef sandwich is one of the best out there.
 
2012-09-18 06:08:14 PM
Wow, I've eaten at 11 of those places without having gotten them from a list...

Go to Arthur Bryant's. I actually don't care for their sauce all that much, but their sliced pork is the best meat I've ever had. It's so moist and tender it's almost buttery.

Fox Brothers is pretty good, but where is Poole's Barbecue! That's some of the best in GA.

Big Bad Wolf's House of Barbecue - Baltimore, MD. That is all.

My idea of "food porn" is eating BBQ off of Padma Lakshmi's inner thigh (it could even be that store bought microwavable BBQ, I don't care)..

Ranch House BBQ near Olympia, Washington.

Yes, Washington state. Best I ever tasted.
