Quick question,

I am wondering which is a better BBQ place in Searcy,
Barbs BB-Q, Geralds BB-Q, Grandpa's Steakhouse and BB-Q or Trail Dust?

My in-laws are in town from Alaska and want to go eat at a good southern BBQ place.

Whichever one looks the oldest!! I'm a bit of a BBQ snob, not as learned or as well fed as some but I'm working on it. If they serve steak, they aren't a real southern BBQ joint so cross Grandpa's off the list. Trail Dust sounds like they're more of a western theme and probably serve steak too. Southern BBQ is PORK! I'll take the cow at my steakhouse but leave it out of my Q thank you very much! My honest method of judging a Q shack from the outside is the older and more time worn the place looks, the better the Q's gonna be. To this day, the best I've ever had was from this little cinder block bulding with yellowing chipped paint about a mile or two west of Hazen, AR. Maybe it's complete nostalgia but I don't think I'll ever find Q that good ever again.

Personally, I'd go by both of the other two and grab a lunch plate of ribs and see which you like better. BBQ is very much a matter of personal taste: wet vs. dry, vinegar based sauce vs ketchup based sauce, beef vs. pork...

I've gotta 97% agree with you, but I gotta say, a few neighbors and myself have turned out briskets that will make you want to slap your momma.

I've even stooped to brisket a few times in Memphis, and wasn't dissapointed.

Pork BBQ is the best,but beef is great too when done right!!

I have no idea about those BBQ joints in Searcy,but I would eat at any of them based on name alone!
