Okay... this transplant has found ONE place so far worthy of the name "Bar-be-Que". . . . . the Pittsburgh BBQ Company, on Banksville Road... nowhere to sit, and only a small shack, but awesome ribs & pulled pork!!!

Where else around might I find decent southern-style hickory-smoked (or better yet, Mesquite-smoked) BBQ with which to whet mah appetite with?.....

(Bonus Points, if it's on the South Side!!!)

I believe the most famous one is Wilson's Barbeque on the North Side (either Jacksonia or Sampsonia Street). And I think there's a place in Homewood, but I don't know which street.
