    It's only a matter of time until folks start talking BBQ, so I may as well start it now.

    Put me down in the Central Texas school. Brisket, sausage, ribs - dry rubbed and smoked for hours. No need for sauce, that's just a way to cover up bad meat.

    What's your preferred style?
     
  2. Memphis generally, if anyone is around XNA Penguin Ed's is fantastic.

    I agree with swag, provided the ribs are beef ribs and the sausage is hot, hot, hot.

    Texas. My trip to the Austin DO last year solidified that view. Although my tastes on the DO were different than many other people's tastes on that trip.

    Bacon wrapped corn cob. Mmmm. *drool*

    Redbones in Boston (well, Somerville, but who's counting [​IMG]) is a classic. Blue Ribbon BBQ int he same city is also very good.

    My very favorite BBQ came from a Mobil station in nowhere, MS. I'll be back there for sure, if I can find it again!

    17th Street Bar and Grill (Mike Mills) dry rub with a thin NC style sauce.....not too much! The dry rub is all you really need. It's actually called Magic Dust, and you can buy it and put it on everything you cook. Oh, wait, that's me.

    Alright, there are clearly a few folks (mostly those of you who live outside the south ;)) who are missing the definition of BBQ.

    To be clear:

    Grilling: Cooking fast (an hour or less) over direct heat.
    BBQ: Cooking slow (three hours or more) over indirect heat.


    Grilling is good; nay, grilling is wonderful. But it is not BBQ. [​IMG]

    Living in the UK I am very jealous of this thread as it is very hard to find halfway decent BBQ food here. One of the first things I do when a planning a trip to the USA is search for a good BBQ place.

    Would filipino lechon qualify as BBQ?

    Nice! I visited there a couple of years ago during a conference - had a great time, but promptly forgot the name. Talking to a guy from Texas a year or so later I mentioned this superb BBQ place 'somewhere near but well outside Austin' and he said instantly: "if it was that good, it was Salt Lick".

    I would say it qualifies as REAL barbeque.

    Even the Salt Lick in the Austin airport is pretty decent for airport food. Nothing like the original site, though. I miss good BBQ being in Calif.

    I grew up south of Houston, but lived in San Diego for a while and lamented the lack of choice in BBQ. Now living in Austin, my cup runneth over. :cool:

    I truly long for some decent barbecue in the DC area. What we have really can't even be called barbecue.

    OK, so I'm starting to get an understanding of what you guys are calling real bbq...which is not me grilling on my tiny porch...but more like my neighbor who spends 6 hours smoking 5 racks of ribs with special wood chips, in a large smoking chamber and packs enough food for me to take home to feed my family for a week.

    I'll throw in that I've enjoyed bbq ribs at Lamberts near Springfield, IL, throwed rolls, long lines, and all. I've also enjoyed Nashville style dry bbq ribs at places like Corky's. Both great tourist spots if you are in the area.

    Foreign bbq-wise, my favorite is any Korean bbq place where you cook as much meat as you can, like my friend's place in the southern part of Korea.
