    have any of y'all been to the barbecue joint off estes on the way to chapel hill? the meat there is ok (i'm a recent vegetarian), but the sides are simply off the chain. also, the ribs at mama dip's on rosemary in ch are making me consider my decision.

    also, kentucky by 5.

    And by the way, the Official capital of Texas is Austin. The Official capital of Texas BBQ is Lockhart.

    I have a feeling that the vinager-based que (Carolina) vs the tomato-based que (Texas) could produce a more heated battle than Duke vs Carolina on this forum

    I like them both. The Q's, not the teams.

    I have, from time to time, wondered what it would have been like to attend Duke. However, now that I know that you ruin your que with vinegar, I am glad I went in the other direction. The best, by far, I have ever had was in Memphis.

    I ate at Ed's (newer, but long closed "Mitchell's") Wilson restaurant many times. The one in the 2-story cinder block building on 301. It was a buffet serving line, and you could order just the meats and not have to get the veggies. I like veggies, but didn't want to fill up with them when I had baby backs and chopped Q on the plate

    Just in case any of you haven't seen it yet:

    When my life is through,
    Bury me in Bar-b-Que,
    But make sure its vinegar based,
    Cuz' you know that slows decay,
    And its the style from our home state.


    And what is this talk about Texas BBQ havng ketchup? In Texas the real BBQ is beef briskit - served smoked and with no sauce (some of the better BBQ joints in Texas do not even have any sauce in the place, and if you ask for any they will come out from behind the pit and kick your a** - and rightfully so).

    You are absolutely correct - and I have my Black's BBQ t-shirt to prove it!

    I said Austin for two reasons: 1) most people have never heard of Lockhart, and 2) While both of the good in Lockhart (Blacks' and Kruez - I don't count Chisolm or Smitty's) are a 10 on the 1 - 10 Texas BBQ scale they are the only two places. In Austin you can't turn around without finding a place that rates an 8 or a 9 on virtually every corner.

    My wife just returned from visting her family in Danville, VA with 2 pints of Que. Not the same as being there but, yes, we in the North are forced to make sacrifices. Then again, we in Philly have cheesesteakes and Tastykakes going for us. Which is nice.

    Not to hijack this thread, but what are your favorite places for cheesesteaks, 77? Are the big names Pat's and Geno's good, or are there better choices?

    I went to a place called John's Roast Pork in the industrial district just by the river. If you haven't been yet, make it a destination.

    Stay away from Pat's and Geno's despite what you may have heard to the contrary. I dislike them both because how they prepare the meat, and because they cater to the touristas. In fairness though, they have there legion of local fans. Like Que, finding the best cheesesteak is a bit of a journey and everyone is entitled to their preference. Half the fun, of course, is seeking the "holy grail."

    Downtown, I prefer Jim's, but if you are willing to venture 10 miles north to a real neighborhood mecca, and my personal favorite, try Dalessandro's in Roxboro. Hasn't changed in 50 years.

    Agreed on Jim's. Their place on south street is great. Also good is Tony Luke's.

    I must say, having grown up in NC and lived there until I was 28, I loved NC BBQ. However...da-da-daaaaaaaaaah, I live in Greenville, SC now and I have become a SC BBQ lover now. Amongst my friends I am known as the BBQ snob. ONly the best for me. No, no I don't like the mustard sauce, but I do enjoy the good Q here and the sauce. For any of you who travel to the upstate, be sure to go to Smokin Stokes on Augusta St. The best BBQ and ribs in the state. Wow. Oh and don't forget to try the Cheerwine BBQ Sauce on your Q. One last thing, try the BBQ Baked Potato too. It's just a huge baked potato with all the fixins as well as half a lb of BBQ on top. OK, am going there for lunch now.

    No sauce on the brisket at all my friend, in Lockhart; home of the best que, even for you. Visit Kreuz Market yourself. Better yet, take some of your friends. Throw a curve to the vinegar-bent , and threaten with Fredo those who like tomato .

    ricks knows his Texas Q. Last time I was in Austin, we drove to Lockhart and did Kreuz, Smitty's, and Black's in a 2 day period. Kreuz's brisket is so good we hit is a second time. The meat at each of these places is so good you wouldn't think about covering it in sauce.

    I'm going back down to Austin in early February and this time I'm getting up early on Saturday morning and making the trip to Snow's in Lexington. It's only open on Saturday and the 1200 pounds of meat they cook is usually gone by 10 AM. Texas Monthly calls it the best Q in Texas. Here's another review from a great website.

    NPR did a great story on Snows as well. I remember reading an article where the woman who owns was quoted as saying she wishes she had never gotten the publicity. She is thinking of closing because of her distress that she can't serve her long-time local customers.

    I have a 2nd cousin who live in Filly and she would not let me go to the above 2 places (tourist joints) and directed me to Jim's at 4th and South. Mighty fine.

    Paging Turk...

    That pork place that one of the other posters mentioned may also be the one Turk described a few months ago here or to me in a PM. Or, that could just be crazietalk...
