Mentat: Kansas?


Uh, you did see the second best place overall is in Kansas right? Bueller? Hello? Plus Guy and Mae's. Your hate of all things Kansas is spot on with some stuff, but hilariously misguided with others (like this, duh).

Too bad KC metro straddles two states cuz they win this shiat.

6/10 top places are in Georgia or Florida. Laughable.

*sigh* Can't we all just get along? Look, BBQ is like sex. Even when it's bad, it's pretty good. Whether it's steak, hot dogs, chicken, kabobs, or even veggie burgers, BBQ shouldn't divide us. BBQ should bring us together. Just BBQ what you like.

Kentucky is an overlooked BBQ state, and I think would've been a good pick in the 5-10 range.

The local convenience store down the street from me has the best BBQ on the planet. For only $1.99 you get plenty of chips, each of them doused in a savory combination of salt and BBQ seasoning.

Does Famous Dave's count?  Seriously, for a chain restaurant, the ribs and other BBQ are awesome...

My weakness is for all-you-can-eat Chinese buffets.  I have a superpower--I could be in Cedar Rapids at 3 AM and I could find the nearest Chinese eatery wearing a blindfold...

Ladies and gentlemen, I was a sinner. I said, I was a sinner. For half my life I thought of my body, this mortal vessel of flesh and bone. I focused my intellect on it, unhappily striving for longevity, without joy. I shunned the bountiful gifts of pulled pork and glazed ham laid before me, presented for my indulgence, in the vain pursuit of clean arteries and low cholesterol. I embraced raw broccoli, but ignored bacon, and butter, and cream. But, oh, I have seen the light! After more than 20 years of being a vegetarian, I have seen the light! And it shines through the front window at Mr. Bottley's!

Woe be to you poor unfortunate souls who have trod this Earth these many years without having entered the paradise that is Bottley's BBQ in Stockton, CA., for your's is an empty and unfulfilled existence. May the glory that is Mr. Bottley's ribs, hot links, medium sauce, and peach cobbler one day shine down upon you so that you may know contentment at least once before passing from this world.

Do not suffer my fate of regret and remorse for lost chances at happiness, brothers and sisters. Do not deny yourselves what you know to be good. Life it too short. Indulge yourselves! And revel in the ecstacy that is the ribs and links combo plate. Have the mac and cheese. Tip well. Amen.

You don't BBQ steak, hot dogs, chicken, kabobs, or even veggie burgers. Now go sit in the corner while I put you on my ignore list. I might just quit the Internet, too.

For once they make a decent list. Not that I agree wholeheartedly but obviously put together by someone who loves BBQ.

Now the purist in me would point out that "North Carolina" does not belong in one line any more than you can lump Hershey's and Godiva together just because they're both chocolate. There is East and there is West. The eastern style being vinegar-based and thoroughly heavenly while the western is your garden variety, unremarkable sugary tomato-and-molasses stuff. But hey, why split hairs right?

I just like BBQ as long as the meat falls off the bones.. Texas and California have been the best of BBQ I've had..

Yup. Nice seasoning on the outside, smoke that tri-tip for half a day. Add beans and salsa and that can go toe to toe with any Texas brisket any day of the week.
 
2014-05-09 01:48:59 AM  
Meh, Texas is over-hyped.   A lot of the people in my area fawn over local bbq joints that have overcooked meat that's literally burnt with bbq sauce that tastes like that kraft garbage.  If any of you have had the kraft bbq sauce, you'll know what a horrible experience I'm talking about.  I think a more accurate poll would be to rate which restaurant has the best bbq, which has been done already anyway numerous times.  Rating which state is just garbage as it gives a state too much credit for something that it is otherwise as mediocre at as anywhere else in the country.

The best BBQ is whatever I've made recently on my kamado grill. Most recent was reverse seared stuffed pork chops but I also do pulled pork, ribs, brisket, smoked turkey, etc on it. I've only gone out for bbq a few times since I bought my grill last year, it's probably already saved me the $300 purchase price =)

Kentucky has BBQ mutton/lamb?
I didn't think lamb or mutton were eaten much in the States. Granted, I have only briefly visited the West Coast so my experience of the country is very limited, but also most of the Americans I've met here say they have rarely or never eaten lamb.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say here is that I would love to try some, please.

Ah, you don't live around Chicago.  If you lopped off the rest of the state, Illinois movies up to around #3 on the list.  Good god, there are some magnificent BBQ places in and around the city.

Get thee to Cooper's in Llano. Before the tourists and hipsters discover it because they are opening a new location in downtown Austin. One of the lesser-known (outside of the old-timers in Central Texas) brisket meccas, but absolutely amazing.
