RE: AZ BBQ Association
For Road-Foodies, I recommend Honey Bear's BBQ on Van Buren St near 48th St in East Phoenix. There are several satellite locations but the BBQ is cooked here. The atmosphere could be described as "quaint," but the food is good.
Joe's Real BBQ on Gilbert Ave in Gilbert AZ, East Valley for those familiar with the Phoenix area, can also be recommended. Good food (cooked on-site) and quick service.
