    The Lonely Planet's list of best BBQ in the US

    Someone on another site linked to this article and I thought some here might enjoy.

    How many have you been to? I've been to three: Franklin, Snow's and ZZQ.

    Oh my. I am ashamed now. I have lived in Kansas City, St. Louis, and Charlotte, NC. I have only been to one on this list. Joe’s in KC. I think a road trip might be in order.

          Interesting list. Nothing out in California which helps explain why I've been a bit disappointed in the various BBQ places I've tried in the San Diego area.

            Yeah, but you have a decent taqueria on every corner. I once lived directly across the street from one of the locations of Alberto's. I still miss the chicken burrito as well as the machaca at 4 in the morning.

          Gatlins is my favorite in Houston.
          Sorry they made the list. Now it's gonna get crowded again.

            I’ve only been to Big Bob Gibson’s here in Alabama, on that list. I‘Ve had some good Memphis BBQ, but not at Cozy Corner.

              Bob Gibsons and Cozy Corner are both really good.

              Ive also been to Franklin's and Jones BBQ.

              So 5 off the list.

              I'm still fairly certain the best bbq is in places that don't make lists

                One thing for sure - no one has been to every bbq joint.

              Amen BFlynn . Every time I hear of one of these best lists I imagine all the places with even better BBQ that people passed by on their way to ones on the list.

                I'm generally underwhelmed by TV shows about "this is the best of".  Nine times out of ten, they're just regurgitating the same old lists you find in countless other TV shows, magazines, blogs, etc.  I've chased a few of these placed down over the years, once doing a whole vacation following the barbecue trail through some list I saw online.

                I learned something that holds true for many things; popularity is no guarantee of excellence.  There are exceptions of course.

                Yes, and the ‘Best of’ articles too. The freelance author of this article is NYC based and also covers spas and beauty treatments in other magazines so there is the likelihood that this list was culled from other “lists” with very little firsthand knowledge.
