    Not much argument on this list



    Yes there is!
     
    Where is Ayden or Goldsboro, NC?
     
    The very best barbecue is the original:  minced whole hog (not pork shoulder!) seasoned with vinegar/pepper sauce (not that tepid, ketchupy "dip").
     
    Yes, "Western Carolina" has its fans, but Eastern Carolina RULES the barbecue world!

    They can't list every city.  Rhode Islanders say they have the best BBQ (and if you disagree you'll end up "sleeping with the fishes")  and I don't see them on the list.
     
    I'm looking at the list and laughing because many (ok, just a certain roadfooder from the space coast region of Florida) always wondered why I would skip a roadfood reviewed restaurant in lieu of an "ordinary" restaurant that I found on my own
    For example back jn 2010, I skipped the roadfood reviewed Wilson's BBQ in lieu of Elmer's BBQ , both in Tulsa  Ok. simply because my investigation indicated that Elmer's was better, and sure enough, Elmer's appears on this list.

    You know, others on the forum had you specifically in mind when they told me to ignore the nut jobs and crazies here, you know the ones that contribute absolutely nothing.
    I'm speaking on behalf of everyone here on the forum,  when I say....and you're totally useless.

    C'mon boys! 
     
    I saw this post this morning and ran away from it when I saw the remarks.  More Roadfooders may be doing the same because of the insulting remarks.
     
    Of course they can't list every city. 
     
    Everyone's taste is also different.
     
    No more snide remarks, please.  It takes away the fun.
     
    We need more new topics and not ruin the ones that are already here.
     
    I know I also take a jab here and there but I try not to be mean about it.
     
    Thanks all!

    It's an okay list in my opinion, maybe even quite good. Everyone of these so called BBQ best of lists, never mention Atlanta, and there is some mighty fine Q in the metro area.

    Loved Community BBQ in Decatur. One of my favorite bbq joints anywhere. I really enjoyed Spiced Right BBQ in Roswell too, and although it's been quite a while, Daddy D'z in Atlanta proper was no slouch either.

    No one said these were the ONLY best cities.
    There are plenty of other cities that could be on the list

    Astonishingly, Robert Moss has an article up this very day about click-bait headlines and stories about "best" barbecue.
    http://www.robertfmoss.com/2016/07/click-baiting-editors-and-barbecue-lists.html
    The reason behind it is pretty simple.  They want arguments, usually along the lines of "you forgot to mention my city / my favorite restaurant," because that keeps people coming back to see it again and again.  More views = more ad $.  It's ridiculous, though I don't deny contributing a few such listicles for publishers myself when the paycheck is good.

    Yeah.
     
    But Tyler, TX?
     
    Tyler ranks right up down there with McKinney (The Best Place to Live in the U.S.).

    While not exactly a city, Lockhart TX has more of its share of BBQ.  Kreuz, Blacks, Smitty's and Chisholm Trail.  I have been to three of them with Bushie, Mayor and Poverty Pete.  Best sausage was at Smitty's and best brisquit was at Kreuz.  The reason Lockhart is not a city as it has a population of about 13,000 and the BBQ attracts 5000 customers a week.

    If I'm going to post for my first time, it might as well be here. Summer seems to be BBQ list season. I've seen a number of them. I glean the places that are new to me, and mark them for when I'm in the area. I regularly find when I go to mark a place, I've already done it from another list.
    This one had several places that look interesting that I had not previously marked. For that reason, well done.
