Jack Stack in Kansas City. Everyone else is wrong. (Smoke Stack on Old 71 was better till they closed, but at least Jack got the family sauce recipe.)

Mine. Because no one likes me so I get all the ribs

My deck. Just did up some country style ribs. No you can't have any.

What a complete travesty of a list. Chicago, New York City, and two places in California? And no actual BBQ from North Carolina? The author is bad and should feel bad.

Wilson's BBQ North Side, Pittsburgh, PA.

Best BBQ USA
Best greens

Seriously, standing in line for three hours for Franklin's?  Fark that.  I am sure that it is good, but I can sit down and be served at The Salt Lick and have the best BBQ in the US vs some Hipster line up at Franklins.

Oh boy, a thread where everyone can argue and insult each other's bbq preferences.

The best BBQ joint in the country has been and always will be whatever BBQ joint I'm eating at. "Bad BBQ joint" makes about as much sense as "bad orgasm".
 
2014-05-24 04:16:23 PM
What would happen if someone came into one of these threads declaring Chili's to have the best BBQ?
 
2014-05-24 04:16:37 PM
A couple times a year this small mom and pop joint near my house makes the best barbecue sandwich ever. I think they call it the mcRib. If you want to try it look for the big yellow M.

You order your meat from the counter on the left.  You bring it to the table in meat packing paper.  And then you eat it with your hands with the basic ingredients only a general store from the past would carry.  Pickles, onions and bread.  That's it.

There, the argument is settled.  And lunch is settled for Tuesday.

Also, thank you troops for fighting and dying for my gasoline.  You've helped keep my kid alive.

cheers, *clink*

Nope.  I've eaten a lot of BBQ this year and I've found a couple places that were just plain bad (despite positive reviews).  The other day, I was served brisket that was like chewing uncooked bacon.  Just awful.  Fortunately, that hasn't happened often.

Original "The Shed" in Mississippi. Not just the food, but the place itself is pure awesomeness.

It is really good, but that line is daunting.  You can get other excellent BBQ in Austin our nearby like in Lockhart pretty easily.  I suspect Franklin will expand at some point to match demand. They'll not be quite the cultural thing, but that's okay as long as more people can give it a deserving whirl.

OMG that looks so good.

So good in fact, that you get a free month of TF just for giving me an excuse to go out for barbecue tonight.

Thanks, I'll have to try it once the hoopla has died down.  I've been neglecting my BBQ habit lately.  Dad visits soon and I think we'll skip the usual Lockhart or Dripping Springs and I can show him what Llano or Elgin has to offer.

In the time it takes to wait in line at Franklin's could drive out to Krause Springs and stop at Opie's and get some BBQ that is just as good... except now you can eat it at Krause Springs instead of in East Austin... Hamilton Pool grotto is another fine choice.

Well hey, thanks a lot!  I've been in a terrible dickhead mood all day and this surely brightened it.

Come to Austin and I'll by you all the bbq you demand!

Cheers! And get an extra plate of ribs for me!

Smitty's in Lockhart, TX.  The history of TX BBQ is actually pretty interesting.  There's a reason why this place has character, as they keep things OG, yo.  But you can get some potato salad and all that junk, if you really want.  They still won't give you a fork and knife though.
 
2014-05-24 04:43:38 PM
Ribs will be wet rubbed tomorrow and then smoked over apple wood on Monday.  Beans, slaw and tater salad.  Homebrewed bock beer FTW.  The best BBQ is whatever allows me to sit outside and drink for hours at a time.

Missed BBQ so much until I found this place in San Francisco. Decided to move a block away.

the cake is a pie: Jack Stack in Kansas City. Everyone else is wrong. (Smoke Stack on Old 71 was better till they closed, but at least Jack got the family sauce recipe.)


That was my grandma's favorite.

I'm not a fan. Other than that, I'm fairly ecumenical, Gates, Arthur Bryant's, RJs in Mission, Oklahoma Joe's. I've been meaning to try LCs, but it isn't on my usual route home and I always forget until it's too late when I get routed that direction.
 
2014-05-24 04:57:06 PM
Franklin's is good but the wait makes it not worth it. Kreuz Market or Smitty's in Lockhart are both better (you could start up many family feuds on which of these is better than the other). Lockhart's or Pecan Lodge in Dallas are also better, although Lockharts has almost as long a wait as Franklin's these days.
 
2014-05-24 04:58:07 PM
Dunno about Adkins, Tx, but Franklins is decent, place is usually a mob. Right in Downtown Austin, they're making money hand over fist. Good xall, Lockhart, my fave is Kreuz's. Had Smittys and Blacks, just like them better. In Boerne Springs, there's the first Rudys, and a lot of people swear by them here in New Mexico. To me, it's "Meh". We had a Dickies here, old people BBQ, but they left. We have this one place in Albuquerque, on Central, Called Powdrells, I'm sure som people like it, but the beans, BBQ, sausage and it seems like a lot of the menu Items are loaded with sugar, almost to the point it's hard for me to taste anything else.
I Just smoke my own meat at home, yesterday did a brisket, chicken breasts, sausage. Tomorrow, for Memorial Day, doing a turkey. Wife likes it when the meat spends upwards of ten hours in there.
My Dad in Texas makes BBQ too, but its's not so good. I'll say it again, it's as if the BBQ gene skips a generation in our family.
NC BBQ? really, TV dinner food.
 
2014-05-24 04:58:23 PM
All these pictures are making me really hungry...

Working all weekend and Monday so I won't get to grill or cook outside. I'm doing pulled pork in a new slow cooker instead. Any tips, fark foodies?
 
2014-05-24 05:01:00 PM
The best I ever had was a place in New Braunfels back in the late 90s. I don't even remember the name, though. I'll have to get back to Texas one of these days and try some places in Lockhart and Austin.

I've had good brisket in lots of places since, but never quite as good as a few places in Texas.

Dammit, now I'm craving a brisket sandwich with cole slaw.

Just don't go on the weekend. Last time I was in Austin I got there at 10am on a Wednesday. Got served at 1230. Worth every minute of the wait. The brisket is better than any brisket out there. Ribs and sausage were just OK comparatively but still much better than other places I've been to.

I only eat at the best, most exclusive, BBQ joint in the nation.  So exclusive it only has one table, in my backyard, and I've booked every night in  the foreseeable future.

"The Pit" in Raleigh NC was pretty good.

When you meet somebody that don't like soul food
They still got a soul
And it don't mean that you got no rhythm
If you don't like rock 'n roll

But if your tastes are like mine
you like cider not wine
And your very favorite thing to do
Is get a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbecue

Barbecue lifts my spirit
I swear that it never fails
And the sauce mama makes just stays there forever
If you dare to get it under your nails

Well you may be poor with a wolf at your door
But money isn't everything
You still got your song and a river full of fun
And you'll always have a song to sing
So get the frown off your face
We're gonna replace it with a grin and a dream come true
With a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbecue


Barbecue lifts my spirit
I swear that it never fails
And the sauce mama makes just stays there forever
If you dare to get it under your nails

So get the frown off your face
We're gonna replace it with a grin and a dream come true
With a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbecue

That's a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbe-
Mess of mama's barbe-
Mess of mama's barbecue!

A mess of mama's barbecue!

On a side note, for those of you born and raised in Texas, I didn't find out until I moved out of state when I was in my 30's that we are the only state that serves bbq with pickles and onions.
 
2014-05-24 05:18:35 PM
You guys throw down your BBQ?  Uck.  I like mine to stay on a plate on the table where I can eat it, thankyouverymuch.
