CHOWDOWN COUNTDOWN Travel Channel's Latest 'List'!

 
I caught about half of the first episode of this "Countdown List" of 101 food places favored by the Travel Channel 'raters'. It is a fairly fast moving show with a wide variety of food-types intermixed in the ratings. They start at Number 101 and do about 20 locations in each program. This means a rather short clip for each place as the Travel Channel does use a LOT of commercials and self-plugs in their schedule.
 
  I did manage to uncover the website clip that gives the top 5 BBQ locations in their survey. You can find it at-

Number 5 on the BBQ list is Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse. I've not been there but have read many good reports about the Upstate versions of this  BBQ Stand.
 
Number 4 on that BBQ list is our friend Bill Armbrecht  from Mobile, AL and his BRICK PIT BBQ. I am glad to see him getting some of the recognition he deserves.   You can check the film clip on the website for more on this list.
 
Number 3 is the Memphis BBQ favorite, The Rendezvoux.
 
Number 2 is Arthur Bryants, in Kansas City.
 
and they list the Number 1 BBQ place in the country as the Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, Texas. I like the Salt Lick, but I don't think I would rate it above several of the other Texas locations like Louis Muellers in Taylor or Blacks, Kreuz, and Smitty's BBQ in Lockhart
