Travelled the country the last 20 years. You can't compare regional bar-b-que. All good, all different

I'd put Korean BBQ higher and NC vinaigrette much lower

I mean, if we're doing BBQ, get me South Carolina style.

And hell, Chicago Style rib tips are faneffingtastic.

So close...but seriously, fark that guy, brisket is awesome.

Just go to Memphis.  Every style, each done as well as possible, and I promise you'll otherwise have a good time.

Well, they get kinda touchy when you casually mention how chili is just an unfinished meat sauce unless it has beans in it but Texans do know how to make f*cking delicious BBQ.

But so does Missouri, and Tennessee, and the Carolinas, and every other state in the country.

If the idiot on Twitter thinks that is better than a Texas BBQ brisket or beef ribs, that person is crazy.

Well I haven't had all those so I can't speak to the ranking but what I can say is...Fark the dry rub styles. Give me my goddamn sauce!

Chicago BBQ is cooked in a fishtank smoker which I haven't seen in other regions.

Pro tip: Don't buy Rib tips from a joint where there isn't the  near constant rhythmic Thunk of meat cleaver on chopping board. Some places that don't do a lot of business try to pass off microwaved leftover rib tips slathered in sauce.

Oooooooh. harsh.  But then again, I've got two briskets in the fridge ready to go on the smoker tomorrow night, and this guy ain't on the guest list.  simple dry rub, hickory, and if you want sauce, I'll give you the evil eye and tell you it's on that table over there next to the ketchup.

P.S. - chili has beans.  that Texas Red is badly spiced pasta sauce.

There's beef BBQ, and there's pork BBQ. BBQ is the only way to make pork worth gathering for. Beef, I can come up with better cooking methods that leave you tasting beef. But pork needs help, so you hit it with vinegar and sugary sauces to make up for the fact it tastes like pork.

If you want an example of where beef BBQ goes wrong, look at the brisket. Put it in a smoker all day and you get junk. Cook it wet in a crock pot 6 hours before you grill it with a tomato and molasses based sauce to put a crust on it, and you have a half decent and moist bit of beef. But it ain't BBQ.

I prefer the dry rub styles then add sauce. Preferably the bbq joint has a variety of sauces, I think central in memphis has 5 or so.  Even Carlie's Vergas place has at least 2 (and the best hot bbq sauce there is).  If the ribs come wet you can't change flavors mid rack, and that's important to me because I'm extremely fat.

This. Dry, sauce on the side. Central is great. I hesitate to even call Rendezvous BBQ. It's fantastic, but it's kind of it's own thing. THIS is my favorite BBQ here.

Well, I guess that's the result if you don't know wtf you're doing and are too stubborn to look around online and learn better technique.

I'll grant you that smoking brisket well takes knowledge and practice. Hell, the vast majority of BBQ places around here serve dry, flavorless crap; never mind the average home cook. But if you've ever had brisket that was so moist and flavorful, you didn't even want to put sauce on it...well, that's a game changer in how you evaluate things.

LOL
Made me chuckle...
To be honest? My favorite bbq is a place that actually has some good sides. Not cheap ass white bread, velveeta mac or a pile of instant potatoes.  Real tasty sides made from scratch. Otherwise. meh...

I was pondering "Virginia Barbeque" being a step up from cat food and I was like wait....what is Virginia Barbeque? I live here after all and I think I would know at least something about it but I don't.

This is a decent read about that topic and it isn't terribly long. It ends with another link exploring in more depth if you wish to pursue it further.

Umm, but the link doesn't work! But I found it anyway here.

I don't care, I had a La BBQ in Austin and it was delicious.

Korean bbq is near the top.

Thai bbq deserves first.

Smoke Signals in Lone Pine, CA was once our favorite BBQ place whenever we travelled up that way.  One day my climbing buddy and I stopped for lunch on the way home, the ribs were cold in the middle.  They had served us day old ribs that were just reheated in a microwave.  Never went back again and I'm sure that the owner, Curtis, is long dead.  No loss.

Central has the best meat, BBQ shop has the best sauce. If they'd put it on Amazon so I didn't have to pay so damn much for shipping it'd be my go to sauce.

I will eat any kind of BBQ, anywhere, anytime, and I will not complain or compare it to other BBQ. That's just foolishness.

Any style of BBQ?? Sure. Any BBQ at all?? No. I ain't paying good money for shiatty BBQ. Some do it right and some do it wrong. We have a couple of places around here that it might as well be school cafeteria food. CrockPot style BBQ shredded pork. Don't cook the damn pork in a sauce. If the pork doesn't have a bark on it, then it's wrong.

/Whole hog is an exception
//Whole cooked slowly in the ground = my best
//Whole on a spit turned by hand for 30 hours = second best
