Continuing the quest. Just got off a 13k mile trip through Turkey, The Balkans and Northern Europe on a barbecue quest.
Ate like a king with De Klos in Amsterdam serving up some of the finest ribs I've ever wedged into my gullet http://chowpapi.com/wordp....8.6/wordpress/?p=2235
Now I'm back in the states [Austin,Texas]where I can eat world class barbecue at any number of world class joints all within a 45 minute drive of my home.
But I'm preparing to hit the road once more.
This barbecue trip will carry me to Chicago, one of the great American barbecue towns.
I've culled a preliminary list off http://kevinsbbqjoints.co...-pang-chicago-tribune/
Here it is: -Beef brisket at Smoque BBQ
-Rib tips at Barbara Ann’s BBQ
-Hot link at Uncle John BBQ
-Burnt-ends sandwich at Real Urban BBQ
-Pork belly pastrami at Pork Shoppe
-Q puppies at Q BBQ
-Pulled pork shoulder at Lillie’s Q
-Jalapeno-cheddar Kreuz Market sausage at Austin BBQ
-Candied pecans at Brand BBQ Market
-Spare ribs at Big Ed’s BBQ
Sounds like a good starter but I'm wondering if any roadfood chowhounds can help fill it out a bit?
Also, got 30 minutes? Want to watch an incredible video on Chicago barbecue? Here's a hot link http://vimeo.com/29203337
