    Cottage Place - Flagstaff, AZ (Not BBQ)

    Okay, so, just to get this out of the way, this is not a BBQ joint, but one single experience made me believe it deserved the attention of Pitmasters on AR.

    This is a $50-$70+ per person restaurant where a reservation is pretty much a must, unless you're very lucky, but a same day reservation is pretty easy to get. As far as restaurants go, this was in my top 3 dining experiences ever. The food is exquisite, the staff were flawless, the chef even came out to our table to check on how things were going. They have a monthly Taster Menu, which is a 6 course meal where each bite is crafted to compliment the previous bite and prepare you for the next tasty journey that awaits you.

    The reason I felt is belongs here, is when I ordered Tenderloin Braciole, they asked how I wanted it cooked. Being that I am a graduate of Meathead's BBQ 101, I always reply "med-rare." The waiter nodded and replied that was possible, but that the chef PREFERRED a specific temperature as opposed to standard labellings. As soon as I was able to pick my jaw up from the table I stammered "130F" and had the most delightful Tenderloin Braciole cooked perfectly to 130F. It was such a treat to dine in a place that treats food temperature with the same importance as I have come to since scouring the pages of AR.

    Spot on! I would go there for dinner tomorrow night for my birthday, but they're closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. My loss.

    Were you up here for student move-in? Just visiting? Or do you live up here with us highlanders? Enquiring minds...


      I'm part of the Phoenix AR crowd. Just escaping the heat for the weekend. Went up to Bearizona in Williams. If you in Flag, DO NOT miss out on Diablo Burger either!

        Come up to Payson -- we have a relatively new, small, BBQ joint on the main hiway, called Susie Q's BBQ. I'd like to see your review of her pulled pork, BBRibs, chicken and brisket...

        I'm heading down to Tempe tomorrow to try out LilMissBBQ

    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
