The best Bar-B-Q sandwich in Georgia can be found at Dean's in Jonesboro. If your looking for the best Brunswick stew to go with it then you will have to drive south to Piggy Park in Thomaston about 40 miles away. It does not get any better.

    i would have to say if you are south of Austin, TX...Rudy's BBQ and the Salt Lick BBQ...in Austin area...Stubbs is the best.

      I have to vote for the Goode Company in Houston Texas, Off of I-10. They're brisket is pure heaven. There used to be a small shed out by Intercontinental Airport that sold red beans and rice along with a link of Chappel Hill sausage that was great.

        I can't imagine there's better BBQ sausage to be found anywhere in the world. Amazing stuff.

          Sam's in Austin, Texas (2000 E.12th St.)

          Here's someone else's review
          +++

          We are Bar B Q connoisseurs. We have had BBQ from Memphis, Atlanta, Detroit, Puerto Rico, Richmond, Jackson Ms, Cancun, New Orleans, Miami, Pensacola, Orlando, New York, Milwaukee, Chicago, all over Texas... you get the point.

          This restaurant's food was so good that she had to find out its name from coworkers. My wife was waxin’ poetic about the best BBQ she’d ever put in her mouth. Before she could get the whole story out, several coworkers said, “Oh! We know! On 12th Street?”

          It is the best in the US. We are going tonight to get some. I will never be satisfied with any other BBQ… ever.

          Nuff sed.

            In 1981, my family and I ate at Stubby's Hickory Pit BBQ in Hot Springs, AR and our lives were forever changed. Before then, brisket was corned beef or pastrami. In addition to the incredible meat was the best (and biggest) pit-cooked baked potato I've ever eaten. We were tempted to drink the sauce in lieu of sweet tea. Thanks to Michael and Jane--it was in their first RoadFood book. Has anyone been there in the recent past? Still good?

              I have eaten at literally dozens of BBQ places around the country since mid May of this year. Although this was not an exhaustive survey, I have had a chance to try several different BBQ traditions that I hade not sampled before. Among the places I have eaten are Lockhart, Dallas, Luling, Llano, and Elgin in Texas. In Tennessee I sampled both the eastern TN style as well as the Memphis style. In upstate New York I ate at several of their famous chicken BBQs as well as the famous Dinosaur's in Syracuse.

              Some highlights were eating at all three BBQs in Lockhart for lunch one day and eating at five different BBQs in Memphis one afternoon while driving from Dallas to Nashville.

              My most memorable meals were brisket and sausage at Luling City Market in Luling, TX and a cornish hen at Cozy Corner in Memphis. I would rate these as the two best BBQ meals I have had while eating at all these well known BBQ joints.

                Dearfolk,
                The best BBQ pork that I can ever remember finding is still available at Spiced Right BBQ on U. S. 29 in Lilburn, Georgia. There's almost no fat on it, and never any gristle. The sides are excellent as well, although their previous number of ten sauces has been trimmed to two: a hot and a mild, both tomato-based, and neither one sweet.
                Harold's BBQ on McDonough Blvd., S/E in Atlanta has excellent pork as well.
                The late, lamented Melear's BBQ on U. S. 29 in Fairburn, Georgia used to have the best pork I knew of, but they're long out of business. Sniff. C'est la guerre.
                I'll post more when time allows; I've been idiotically busy.
                Off Cue, Ort.

                  The BEST BBQ is in Missouri! BUT, you can't get it anymore except during the OZARK FAIR in Springfield, MO! Rudys BBQ is family owned/ran. They've been doing the fair for 54 years! The sauce is a recipe of Rudy's, original owner and father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Rudy used to have a restaraunt in Springfield, but due to health reasons, he had given that up. He kept doing the fair...and that and the sauce is the family tradition!!!

                    Other than my own 'cue, two barbecue experiences stand out in my mind. The first was Goode Company in Houston - the original location on Kirby - back in the early 1980's. It was so good I can even remember the flavor over 20 years later. I especially liked their ribs and links, as I recall. It stood as the very best BBQ I ever had for almost 2 decades. Then in the late 1990's I ate a sandwich at Arthur Bryant's in KC. It was a beef sandwich served with their famous lard-cooked fries. I think I rank that experience about equal to Goode Company.

                        Can your first taste of BBQ give you an impossible to match experience? If so, it was Jimmy's Rib Crib in Milwaukee's old Haymarket Square probably 40 years ago. Nearby was The Speed Queen, still in business and serving fine Q. Unlike Chicago, Milwaukee always seemed to have some very good BBQ joints. Sadly most have gone to those great pits in the sky. I could never pick a best but I've sure enjoyed Arthur Bryants, Little Jakes, BB's Lawnside and Gates in KC. The Cozy Corner, Public Eye, Rendevous, Interstate and some little place somewhat near Presleyville that had an outstanding BBQ bologna and BBQ spaghetti whose name I no longer remember; all in Memphis. We spotted smoke and followed it to some little tiny place halfway between Charleston and Savannah that I'd never be able to locate again. The Carolina's served us some vinegar sauces that I've never found elsewhere. Ditto Abe's in Clarkesdale in Mississippi to go along with blocks of great Q served up by church groups and other enterprising locals in Helena Arkasas during the King Biscuit Blues festival every October.
                        Jim's in Rock Island was outstanding and we recently had some in Rockford Illinois that was called New Orleans or was it the Mardi Gras? My all time favorite is the next one I'll try, as there are so many I haven't tasted yet. So much Q, so many variations, so many not tried yet!

                          Sorry...But GATES and Arthur Bryants is NOT good sauce!! I know everyone in the K.C.area seem to love it, but I tried it when I first moved in the area..., And ARTHUR BRYANTS is even worse/they give you lots of meat, but the sauce has got to be the worst ever!

                            When you think about it then; it's amazing those places are still in business!

                              Rudy's in San Antonio.
                              But the best I've ever eaten were made in a wash tub in a Black neighborhood where I helped deliver milk from a truck as a young man. After all these years I still judge using this man as a standard.I remember getting excited about the Saturday delivery's because I knew lunch was going to be a treat.

                                  Louie Mueller in Tailor TX for Brisket, Shorty's in Miami for Ribs,
                                  Chicken (take elevated subway to last stop going south).

                                  As for the Northeast, best deal is Mr. W's in Pawling. I find both his chicken and ribs are even better if finished at home by reheating on the gas grille. Mr. W now has brisket, has anyone tried it yet?

                                    Wow..........I can still remember going to Arthur Byrant's and how it has stood out in my memory for so many years. I thought it was just terrific..........had a wonderful time there and loved every bite of food.

                                      I once made a roadfood trip in college from Anderson Indiana to KC, for strouds and AB's, best college roadtrip I ever took.

                                      Both places will always stand out in my memory.

                                            Harmon's in Cibolo is very good,and I also like Tom's Ribs on nacodoches Road in San Antonio,but I heard somewhere that it had new owners.
                                            A co-worker went to SaltLick in Driftwood,Tx,up near the AUstin-San Marcos area,and thought it was great.

                                                We spotted smoke and followed it to some little tiny place halfway between Charleston and Savannah that I'd never be able to locate again.


                                                I was just thinking of a particular sandwich that my gf and I enjoyed once a couple years back. We'd been hiking the Francis Beidler, came out to the car, starving, and happened through a little town in that same area that had a Duke's barbecue in it. Now Duke's operates about four or five locations, the most familiar being in Walterboro off I-95. That one isn't bad, mostly buffet. But for some reason this really simple pulled pork sandwich on white Sunbeam with pickles and that really pungent not-mustard-but-not-ketchup sauce was just the bomb. And I can't remember what little town that was to save my life, but the Duke's is on a corner and near a railroad track, and had a whole wedding party waiting for takeout from the window. It was terrific.

                                                Yeah, V960, people get hostile about the 'cue.
