Default Where's the best BBQ???

What CITY (not state) is home to the best barbecue???

This is clearly an opinion based poll, so no criteria.

I've heard Kansas City has the best, but I've never been there so I can't speak to it. Of the places I've been I'd have to say Savannah, GA, or Jacksonville, FL.

KC is my favorite. Memphis is probably number 2. I haven't had any from the Carolinians yet, but I want to.

i personally think that each city does at least one thing better than the other... but i'm too tired to even comment on that right now. memphis sausage is gross... i tried it, and the way they make it is not for me. austin has the best meat. in my opinion the bbq sauce is the best in raleigh.... but if its good, then its good.

I really like some of the BBQ joints in Nashville (especially Jack's downtown)...but for me, Memphis has the best (I'm a pulled pork & ribs fan). Jim Neely's is probably my favorite there.

LOL...New York...

I like all southern barbecue I've tried, except for the western parts of TX. I'd love to try the Alabama style white sauce one day.

Memphis dry rub is only one part of the one two Memphis punch. "Memphis style" is more pulled pork shoulder, "wet" ribs and dry rubbed ribs as a side note, since the dry grilled ribs are less what Memphis is known for. The late Charlie Vergos began the dry rubbed style in the early 20th century at The Rendezvous, and they are widely known, but the original and current Championship Memphis style is based on a lengthy smoking process involving charcoal and hickory wood with tomato/spices sauce at a constant temporature. It's nearly impossible to beat!

My mouth is watering now!

I can find good BBQ anywhere I go. But I have never been to any city where BBQ permeates every level of society the way it does in Memphis. And the best BBQ I have ever had, hands down, has been in Memphis. I dare anyone to have bad BBQ in Memphis; it just doesn't exist.
