Becky's BBQ Tue, 07/7/09 11:22 AM (permalink)
We're having our lunch at work catered today by Beckys BBQ in Middletown RI.
http://www.beckysbbq.info/
 
My coworkers insist that this bbq  is equal to (if not better) than bbq served in Tennessee, Texas, Kansas City or anywhere else for that matter, and collectively ridicule me for thinking otherwise. Since they outnumber me 100 to 1, perhaps they're right, who am I to argue.. Just like I didn't argue a decade ago with my coworkers in Pittsburgh who told me that Haluski is an "All American Dish" served everywhere around the country and a decade and a half earlier with my coworkers from Seattle who told me that "pizza is pizza" or nearly 2 decades ago with my coworkers from Long Island who told me that the best Mexican food can be found in New York City- bar none.

        Have the comments come from people who have actually had BBQ in TN, TX or KC?

          Anyone been there? Does anyone agree? Does it really deserve deserve to be held in the same high regard as Kreuz's, LC's, and The Cozy Corner?

          technically yes, in actuality no, I went home for lunch- I can't eat that stuff right now

            Ok, WJ-how was it???? And as you have said before, can you find good BBQ in a place that doesnt specialize in BBQ?

              well, to rephrase their words in a polite politically correct way "who the hell would want to go to Tennessee, Texas or KC anyway?"
              Believe me, you don't want to know what they really said....

                Although you know I am with you on this, I am having a hard time getting past this part of your post!

                  Well,
                  everyone said it was fantastic, so I guess all I can say is Kreuz's - move over- you've got Becky's to join you in the annals of BBQ lore...
                   
                  On an aside, I was telling one of my coworkers about Travelin Man's Italian restaurant in Omaha, and her response was " he doesn't get out very often, does he?"

                    He's JTM. of course he doesnt travel.

                    Anyway, I am sure that Becky's has a better than decent chance of serving bbq that is better than any Famous Dave's meal or any McRib sandwich served in any of the aforementioned states. 

                    Perhaps in some other states as well

                      I don't ever get out much.  And, having grown up on Long Island, I surely don't have any idea what Italian food tastes like.

                      Your co-workers are obviously right.

                      But, it does seem a little odd that you condemn said barbecue without having eaten any of it.

                        I'm missing something here.  Are you saying that BBQ can't possibly be good because it's from RI?

                          Yeah, you probably think Olive Garden offers great Italian food- What do Long Islanders know?!
                          No I never said I'm condemning it, I just wonder if its "the best bbq ever" as my coworkers exclaim
