Thanks for the post, but this list has no credibility. KC has no representation.

For pulled pork, Payne’s in Memphis.

For brisket, Franklin BBQ in Austin (followed closely by Snows BBQ in Lexington, Tx).

JMHO.

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).

I whole heartedly agree with this topic, and the correct answer is a good N.C BBQ with slaw, and vinegar spicy tangy sauce.

While people have differing preferences on cooked bacon, I agree with you that bacon can be ruined if it is overcooked. It needs to be cooked on medium low heat, slow and easy, keeping it pliable and not crisp. The problem is most people are in a big rush and turn up the heat and wind up overcooking it. Another thing bacon should be sliced thick, which helps to keep it from getting overcooked.

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 Hite’s Bar-B-Que
Where: Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina; 803-532-3354
What to order: Jackie Hite’s pork sandwich (pictured above)
is a testament to South Carolina’s 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.

Prefer Oklahoma Joes but Arthur Bryants is right up there. LC's and Jack Stack are also good.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
