From classic pulled pork in North Carolina to traditional Texas brisket to Kentucky mutton, here are twenty-one of the best barbecue sandwiches youll ever eat.

Brisket at Stubbs .....
Thanks for the post, but this list has no credibility. KC has no representation.
Darn! None of these is in Massachusetts!! I’m shocked.
Pork/brisket combo at Arthur Bryants’ in Kansas City.
The Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse.
Which Massachusetts establishment would you recommend?
The bacon on the first picture looks wayyy overcooked.
(and the guy who runs it had his 80th birthday last week)
For pulled pork, Payne’s in Memphis.
For brisket, Franklin BBQ in Austin (followed closely by Snows BBQ in Lexington, Tx).
Nick’s BBQ, Carlisle Ark. Awesome BBQ.
Good BBQ is about as good as it gets.
I could not agree more. And, I love it all: Texas, KC, Memphis, Carolina....
It's all good.
But, to me, there is nothing quite like moist cut brisket from one of the many places in central Texas (Louie Mueller in Taylor; Snow's in Lexington; Cooper's in Llano; Franklin in Austin; Black's in Lockhart; City Market in Luling; and many others).
They seem to have skipped over 17th Street Bar & Grill in Murphysboro, IL..
I whole heartedly agree with this topic, and the correct answer is a good N.C BBQ with slaw, and vinegar spicy tangy sauce.
Is Cooper’s the one on 10W? There is a Cooper’s out there that makes a great Cabrito.
Awesome BBQ, so dang good!
No. Alabama BBQ is the BEST! Good hickory smokin’ with a white sauce. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......mmmmm!
I sort of agree with you except to be real BBQ, it has to be pork.
I like it all as long as the meat is tender, has been cooked over a real fire and has your choice of sauces. I guess the meat has to be high quality too.
I used to love Dobb’s in Dothan, Alabama. I haven’t eaten there in over 30 years tho and I recently read where some guy said it wasn’t any good so I would not endorse it now.
I agree 100% vinegary Carolina BBQ with coleslaw is the best hands down. You know good eating!
Jackie Hites Bar-B-Que
Where: Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina; 803-532-3354
What to order: Jackie Hites pork sandwich (pictured above)
is a testament to South Carolinas barbecue heritage,
with coarse chunks of brined and smoked pork, bathed in a
classic sauce of mustard and vinegar.
I prefer Shealy's just around the corner from Jackie Hite's.
Never had it, but it is on my bucket list.
There’s a Cooper’s in Llano, Fort Worth, and New Braunfels. I’ve only been to the one in Llano.
.....And the finished product:
Wasn't my best, but made for some great Pulled Pork sammiches!!
Prefer Oklahoma Joes but Arthur Bryants is right up there. LC's and Jack Stack are also good.
Driftwood and Round Rock, TExAs.
As ‘Lonely Planet’ used to say ‘good places go bad, bad places go out of business.’
IIRC Dothan Alabama is the hometown of investor Jim Rogers.
They have bbq in Texas?
Not too far away: KC's Rib Shack, Manchester, NH. Not only ribs, but brisket, pulled pork and smoked sausage, cooked low and slow. The cole slaw, baked beans and collard greens are pretty good, too.
Real Texas brisket and original NC pulled pork are hard to beat, but these guys do a pretty good job.
I don’t recall him but I haven’t lived in Dothan in many years. It was the home of star Alabama running back and later cowboy movie star, Johnny Mack Brown.
Alabama QB, Steadman Shealy who led Bama to a national title around 1979 attended our church. It seems like there were a couple of other famous people from Dothan but I can’t remember them now.
To. Die. For.
We ate at 12 Bones in Asheville last summer and it wasn’t any good. The meat and sides tasted like last week’s leftovers. The meal was inedible.
Maurice ‘s BBQ.......South Carolina
and ......The Salt Lick, Austin, Tx
Sumpin like that...
We’re having BBQ burritos tonight.(left over smoked ribs)
I know St Paddy might not approve, but he never had them.
I don't know anyone who would claim that any MA restaurant could stand up to the major BBQ states -- but, since you asked: Red Bones in Cambridge/Somerville, Firefly's in Marlborough, and Firebox in Bedford are not bad at all.
I can think of three other fine establishments which have closed over the past 20-30 years. Not enough demand, I suppose.
I was thinking about redbones as an option. Blue ribbon just up the road in arlington isn’t bad either though it has been a while since I’ve sampled either.
Holy Mackerel! I can’t be hungry again! No!!
KC has no representation.”
Agree wholeheartedly. Many great places in KC. Wonder why they were left off?
I still muss Bob’s Southern Bistro on Columbus Ave and the Hoodoo BBQ in Kenmore Square. Also there was a hidden place in Ayer which closed about a month after I found it. Very sad.
Ya beat me! Black’s in Lockhart is in my top two. It is hmmmm, hmmmm, good.
Exactly... However, putting Oklahoma Joe's Burnt Ends on bread would be sacrilege! Even sauce is unneeded (and unwanted!)
BTW, over the weekend, I saw that OKIE Joe's was named 2012 "Most Manly" restaurant in the USA in 2012! The original, in the gas station in KCKS.
Their meats, especially their burnt ends and smoked sausage are HEAVENLY!
