I'd say Pappy's in St. Louis or Central BBQ in Memphis. Roadkill Grill in Las Vegas has a claim too.
What do y'all think?

One place I can say for sure it is NOT is Phil's BBQ in San Diego. Went there quite a few times (lived in SD and lots of friends thought it was amazing) and never had a good ITEM there. Not one thing tasted even remotely good. Couldn't ever understand the hype that place has.

BBQ is boring. I've had supposedly great BBQ in Texas, NC, KC etc. Certainly nothing to go out of your way for.

This question definitely does not have a definable answer. As stated, there's different styles of BBQ, that's the first problem. Secondly, there's different specific cuts and while one place might have amazing ribs but just decent brisket, another might have amazing brisket but just decent ribs, etc.

I've been to innumerable BBQ places all over the country, all the different styles. Honestly the old joke about beer holds true in my opinion: the best BBQ food is what I am having right now.

That said, I want to go to Salt Lick so badly!!!!

The best BBQ is the one middle of nowhere side of the road with a smoker in the backyard or side and the menu is scribbled on a cardboard. Big portions and cheap prices not so many millennial approved hyped up places charging $25-35 for ribs. BBQ should be cheap eats not fine dining like so many new places.

Salt Lick is pretty good but amazingly, it's not even the best in the Austin area.
