The Cozy Corner has some really good BBQ Cornish Hen for a change of pace.

      Jim -

      I stopped at Payne's but they were closed that day. :-(

      Oh well - just another excuse to stop in Memphis.

        I agree with you about the Cornish hen at Cozy corner. The BBQ spaghetti is a must have side order with your hen.

          Akavar, I agree with Jim about Paynes- The Best Pulled Pork I've had in Memphis.

          I thought the best BBQ Spaghetti was at Neeley's.

          The next time I'm in Memphis I will have to try the Cornish Hen at Cozy Corner

            We have enjoyed several BBQ lunchs and dinners at McClards. The best part of their dinners are the BBQ Beans they use for a side dish. They are outstanding. I would rate the ribs a 7.5 on a 10 scale... That's pretty good, but not in my top 10.

              Ok - the list for the next trip to Memphis is:

              BBQ bologna at Cozy Corner
              BBQ (Pig)Sandwich at Payne's
              BBQ spaghetti at Neeley's

              It's a man's work, but someone has to do it.

                McClard's In Hot Springs, AR is now serving chicken on Wednesday's.
                It;s great to grab and go home with dinner already done.
                Just add some sauce, side of those beans that are so good, cole slaw
                that's chopped fine and it's creamy and sweet! Oh boy, I'm hungry!

                          I've been very fortunate to get to eat at Bub Sweatman's in Holly Hill, SC, The Flying Pig in Lyon, SC, the Georgia Pig in Brunswick, GA, Big Bob Gibson's in Alabama, Tom Jenkin's in Ft. Lauderdale, Dreamland in Birmingham, Interstate in Memphis, and several places in North Carolina. None of these places can touch the "Da Q" at Arthur Bryant's (their original location on Brooklyn Avenue)in Kansas city, MO. It was absolutely incredible. I highly recommend it to all roadfoodies.

                              Been to lots and lots of "Q" places....For me it isn't even close...Arthur Bryant's Brooklyn Ave location in Kansas City, MO! Absolutely amazing.

                                    My mother has a cosin named Jimmy Smallwood and hehad a little roadside stand there in northern Alabama. That was some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten!

                                      There is a great little mom-n-pop rib joint across from Old Town Suwanee off Peachtree Industrial in north Atlanta. It's called Dillards and you can smell the pit-cooked ribs a mile before you get there. Tiny place next to the railroad tracks; if you wear socks, you're too dressy.

                                      Another good choice for ribs is in Columbus, GA and is called Country's. The pit aroma will drive you crazy with rib-lust! Best sides ever, too.

                                        I don't know if it's the best bbq I've had but the place I've enjoyed the most and really miss is Starnes in Paducah, Ky. Pork sandwiches on toasted white bread with Starnes sauce, a sort of peppery and vinegary concoction......mmmmmmm good. Also, excellent ham and turkey. What I miss, though, isn't just the food. It's a great atmosphere, very friendly, very "small town". Or at least it used to be, I haven't been there for about 12 years.

                                        I'm sort of surprised that Paducah bbq was never mentioned in a seven page thread but then, as was mentioned, it's got got a lot to do with what you've been raised with.

                                        Cool forum, by the way, I think I'll like this place. Glad I came across it.

                                                WOW!

                                                Not only is that question (What's the best BBQ you've ever had?) difficult to answer, I personally think that it is IMPOSSIBLE to answer honestly.

                                                Considering the fact that there are people all over the WORLD who read this website, there are millions of "opinions" of what "best BBQ" should taste like.

                                                The answer, whatever it may be, is totally subjective, perhaps, as it should be.

                                                Personally, I think that the BBQ that I cook on my own grill, in my own oven, or in my own smoker, is the BEST BBQ on the planet.

                                                BUT . .. YOU (personally) may think that it sucks big time.

                                                Even though BOTH of us could qualify "GOOD" BBQ from crap (like a recent posting about "Famous Dave's), when we use the term "BEST", then we have a totally new ballgame!

                                                There are so MANY good BBQ places in the South and Southwest, it could take one a lifetime to test and select the "BEST" BBQ I've (or you've) ever had.

                                                Oh well, your question, although an interesting one, is STILL a sticky one.

I have sampled quite a few, and there are some other contenders, but for my money, this is the number one. Sorry I don't have a better pic, but my favorite thing at the favorite place is the shoulder (found here on the right):



                                                  Next week's stop includes a trip to Arthur Bryant's, so I intend on making some serious comparisons!
                                                  The T man is right as usual. (for Texas).....I really like the NC style with a vinegar base in NC. There is a great place called Little Pigs right in Myrtle Beach.

                                                      Has anyone ever been to The State Line, a bbq joint that lies right on the Texas-New Mexico border, in El Paso? I brought a friend there on a recommendation, and left thinking it was the best BBQ I'd ever tasted. I had beef brisket, and my friend ended up getting a five way combo plate of beef ribs, sausage, smoked turkey, brisket, and pork ribs. I finally had enough tenacity (read: no kids with me) to wait the required 2 hours it seems to get a table at this place. I ate so much I don't think I had anything to eat the following day.

                                                        Roadhouse BBQ, Norwich, NY

                                                        On the recommendation of elad from postings ion this forum, I stopped at the Roadhouse BBQ in Norwich, NY two weeks ago. Although this is a bit out of the way for many people I would urge you to make the trip.

                                                        Roadhouse is owned by a woman named Shannon. She makes everything from the meats to the sauces to the side dishes. I thought the items that I sampled were great.

                                                        I had the dry ribs and tried several different sauces. Shannon makes some great sauces. The side dish was mac and cheese which was as good as anything you would find in a southern "meat & three".

                                                        Also, the pulled pork sandwich was great. The "butter & vinegar" sauce that Shannon makes compliments it perfectly. This sauce did not taste much like butter or vinegar to me, but was excellent for this dish. Next time I will try it with cole slaw as they do in Memphis.

                                                        This place holds its own with any other BBQ that I have experienced. To me, the question with BBQ is not always "the absolute best" but do they do well with the style(s) they make. Roadhouse has a unique style that is well worth the trip.

                                                          Lexington #1 (NC) pulled pork and Sweatman's ribs in Holly Hill SC tie for my favorites. Ranking second place are (Columbia SC) Little Pigs on Alpine Road, Hudson's on 378, and Boar's Nest near Irmo, as well as Little Pigs in Statesville, NC - my hometown.

                                                          Must admit the last one is sometimes a tad dry, but always wonderfully smokey. Which I love.
