My grill or any grill that I use or make, especially when camping. So I guess SoveyDawgs Bar and Grill. Bonus when cooked over Kiawe wood and consumed on a beach in Maui, after a nice night time Lobster dive.

In Phoenix the BBQ guys will set up their grills right on a streetcorner and just BBQ away; and there is nothing like freshly BBQ'd chicken, hot off the grill, to make your lunchtime fun.

For some reason, I've found most BBQ joints to be really lousy at BBQ.  (Like seriously, why does the mash potatoes, coleslaw and mac and cheese have to be so much worse then what I can get at Popeyes or El Pollo Loco?)  It doesn't hold a candle to having BBQ in the backyard in the summer.

The original Sonny Bryan's in Dallas on Inwood at the edge of Love Field.  Seated about 20.  Looked like a burned-out drive in.  You lined up, got your BBQ, and ate on the hood of your car.  OMG!  Look around.  Realize that many of the cars cost more than the building.  The big times came to SBs.  Oh so good.  Unfortunately, they diversified and the original joint (and most of the staff) died.

Lone Star BBQ (?) in Buckhead, ATL used to do amazing beef ribs - one rib a meal - but the joint changed hands.

Oh you poor poor people.

My hometown has the highest number of Nationally Ranked BBQ places of anywhere in the U.S.

We may not have anything else, other than the National World War I Museum, but Kansas City has BBQ.

In no particular order:

Arthur Bryant's
Gates
Q39
Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que
Jack Stack
Slap's
John Russell's

Yup, that is exactly the way we Kansas Citians react when anyone tries to claim their BBQ is better than ours. No. :cap_rambo: That's our thing. Find your own.

KC is justly famous for its Q, but I prefer Texas style.  (Yes, Virginia, there are major regional BBQ styles.  Why, NC alone has three!)

C'mon down and try some.  I'll see can I arrange a visa.

I don't have my +1s on auto resupply, but I think I've had all of those but Q39. 

Texas is different, but often just as good.

Hit a small place in NM one time and almost lost my tongue.  Somehow tasty with a high burn.  Slow cooking lets that heat go deep.

Best BBQs I've had were usually small, mom and pop places near small towns in Texas. Kansas places were okay, but not the best.

Q39 is a fairly new place, but it's good.

Just looked up the menu and induced Homer Simpson level drooling.

I still like Bryant's better than all the other places, but they're all good.

Back when I was a youngster, we used to go to Heywards (my dad knew him).  I don't even know if it is open any more.

The best BBQ place I was ever at had to be a place called Smoky Joes. It was a couple of Texans who set up a restaurant way up here. Its long gone and I have never found a place like it again.

Way up where?  You might want to put your location in your profile.
