The Best BBQs

Epicurious.com asked us to do a start-of-summer round up of top barbecue around the country. Unfortunately, we weren't alloted space for the 250,000 words it would take to do the subject justice, but here's a link to our "Cliff's Notes": http://eat.epicurious.com/holiday/grilling/index.ssf?/holiday/grilling/barbecue/barbecue.html

    For Santa Maria, Ca. I can't belive that you didn't touch on Santa Maria Tri-Tip roast. The Tri-Tip is in my top 5 of things I miss most about Calif.

    Add another 0 to that 900 and you got me well maybe exaggerating a bit there but I am in the UK. If there is a mouthwatering BBQ option somewhere in the British Isles I must have missed it. We have come a long way since the days of spitroasting whole beeves on the village green and spitting the bones over our shoulder. Nowadays, BBQ here is the flavour of a potato crisp [chip] or a vivid orangey brown sauce that tastes mainly of salt and sugar and cheap tomato puree, or its what the male of the species does on the 3 days of the year it isnt actually raining here and he gets all primitive and mammoth hunter and feels pretty darn good because he has managed to incinerate half a dozen supermarket frozen burgers and sausages without setting light to more than half his eyebrows.

    So when anyone on this forums comments about bad or unsatisfactory barbeque, just remember how blinking lucky you are to have GOOD Q to compare it to !

    I am so going to have to move countries !

    hehe, thanks Bill, I did used to read the GAS reviews after I'd stumbled across em a year or two back, I'd lost the link tho ! Am I just being dumb or can I not find their Bodean's review ? Should I have cause to go to the capital in the near future ( I must admit, I have avoided it like the plague for the past few years, but Soho is my favourite part and no not for THAT reason ) I will check out Bodeans ... looking at their menu, its seems like they're along the right lines.

    I also noticed the story's not on the GAS site anymore, but they show Baseball at Bodean's ( named in honor of Jethro, but they didn't ask Pearl how to spell the family name) so they can't be all bad. I remember they they went to BB's Lawnside in KC and enjoyed it immensely. Be our official representative and report back.

    Haveing lived in Baldwin Kansas for a spell I got to partake in some excellent KC style BBQ. My very favorite was at a place called the Bum Steer in Lawrence KS., then next to that was Smokey's in Wellsville, next the Smokestack in Martinsville just outside KC,MO.
    Now I live on the west coast and I have tried Santa Maria Tri-Tip...It is out of this world if it is slowly cooked over hardwood coals, it can be a little on the fatty side, but that is what makes it so GOOD.

    Colt, our favorite spot was always LOVEJOY'S KC PIT, corner of 7th St. & Bell. KC natives who do Q right. Alas, I'm 1500 miles away now.
