We're going to have another BBQ fight thread, aren't we?

A place that serves beer is an indicator of a bad BBQ joint?  Huh??

2) damn funny headline, well done

I would have to say that subby is a retarded troll who happens to be 100% correct.

NC mustard sauce is ok
Memphis style is ok
but KC has perfected the art.

I made some pretty good hamburgers on the bbq last night. Took about twenty minutes.

YAY, a BBQ thread! Beats the hell outta politics right now.

Paso Robles, California.  Loud country music inside and a bar near a mechanical bull, so take-out is always a good option.

You might have good bbq, but you're still in the Midwest.

Every BBQ place I've been to in KC, including the most famous ones, sells beer.

Oh, and by the way, I did just throw up a little in my mouth when I posted that. And if you've ever had it happen, you know that the nastiest vomitus on the planet is Sonny's vomitus. Bar none.

One of our most notorious TFers family has been heavily involved in Sonny's BBQ. LOL.

Is Kansas City known for barbecues as well as Blazing Saddles? I'm gonna check it out

the correct spelling is moran, dicknose
 
2012-09-26 05:41:47 PM
I actually like to get a taste for the meat used in BBQ, not drown in a bunch of sauce.

Well duh, especially since Kansas City is the place to find sauce to put on shiatty meat, if you want good BBQ then you buy it in the south where it was invented!

Obligatory for Kansas City.

My favorite BBQ place when I'm in KC is Smoking Guns

It's in some industrial park north of town, but worth the drive.

9/10 - You're gonna get a lot of smoky, sauce, beefy bites and slabs of ribbing on that one.

How to find a great BBQ restaurant:

1) Go to Memphis
 
2012-09-26 05:45:17 PM
I'm going to calmly walk away from this thread. Inevitably there will be morons in here arguing about grilling vs. barbecuing and it will make me very stabby.
 
2012-09-26 05:45:55 PM
I'll be in KC next week, plan to eat a fair bit of barbecue while I'm there. Gates for certain, Arthur Bryant's, L.C.'s, Jack Stack, and Smokehouse are all definitely options depending on how much time I have.

I've been in Dallas for 13 years now and the barbecue here is lame. My favorite "barbecue" here is a Memphis style place, and it still doesn't touch KC barbecue. I just call it all flavored meat here, it's not real barbecue.

i appreciate the anthropomorphized animal criteria as an indicator of good bbq.
 
2012-09-26 05:49:46 PM
You know what's a bad barbecue place? That farkin' Hill Country in New York City (New York has some great barbecue places; they're just a bit expensive). Hill Country has this annoying-ass system where you have to wait in line at different parts of the place (meat one place, sides another, etc.). They mark your little ballot, and then you pay. I can't remember if you get to eat first, but it's still a really stupid system. Hire some farkin' waiters.

Excuse me, I believe you'll find that the best barbeque joints are in the woods in North Carolina.

I like Sonny's chain bbq. I'm not a huge meat eater, but I think the meat is decent, and I like the sauce. I've never had Carolina vineger based sauce, and I'm curious to taste it.

Cythraul: We're going to have another BBQ fight thread, aren't we?


Not me, I like them all. Mustard-based sauce, vinegar-based sauce, tomato, no-sauce, kalua pig cooked in banana leaves, whatever, it's all made of slow-cooked pig, so it's all good.

I also like the slow cooked beef and sausages they do in Texas and the chickens they do in KC. Neither of them are actually "barbecue," (don't tell anyone from Texas or Missouri, they don't know this), but those other slow cooked foods taste good anyway, so I won't fight about it.

Dallas here too. Local BBQ is surprisingly lame.

But then again, I'm from Mo too and all those beat anything around here.

If it was actually in the city I would guess Fat Mack's Rib Shack, oh and good BBQ places can have beer, from an ice tub right next to the cashier.

Or follow the locals to the place owned by the large black woman. Right there by the freeway on the edge of the less-than-well-off part of town. Most every large city has a place like that.

/Never been wrong yet, and the food is great.
