Though I am Florida guy, best bbq I’ve had from a restaurant was Oklahoma Joe’s in KC. The one in or that used to be a gas station.
Well all I know is that in KC was amazing. Better than Bryants. Danny Edwards was pretty good but Joes was best.Its now just named Joes. The " Oklahoma Joe " part , Joe Davidson , left and opened two Oklahoma Joe joints in the Tulsa area. Mrs Dollar is going to a quilting show in KC next month, I'm lobbying that she hits Joes so I can get a full report.
Sort've funny, I don't see a lot of rave reviews on the Oklahoma Joes in Tulsa.
I'm hoping to be in Hutch on business early next month... trying to plan my visit there around lunch or dinner time so I can check it out.Roy's BBQ in Hutchinson, KS on West 5th Street. Maybe not bucket list but the best you'll find if passing through central Kansas. As good as anything you will find in Wichita.
I'd put it on a bucket list just because it's not someplace famous that's on a zillion other bucket lists.Roy's BBQ in Hutchinson, KS on West 5th Street. Maybe not bucket list but the best you'll find if passing through central Kansas. As good as anything you will find in Wichita.
Great ideas. I love the influential idea, and seeing more than just the food would be cool. I’ve seen some YouTube videos where people get into the kitchen, I’m sure that’s not easy but my friend is a chef so sometimes that helps.There maybe other approaches to a BBQ bucket list you might want to consider. Instead of the best places, what about the oldest places or the most influential places (which may not be the same thing). Or restaurants that are pushing the limits of barbecue? Or even more interesting would be the folks who make the smokers we cook on? A tour of Weber is fascinating but probably hard to get. But guys like David Klose in Houston is certainly worth a visit as his cookers are just as eccentric as he is. Harry and I usually try to get into the kitchen of a BBQ joint if at all possible. It is a worthy lesson, more often than not.
Trying for all 50 states?Ok, so my friend has this idea of doing a guys trip, maybe in an RV, to hit a bucket list of BBQ legends
Would love some thoughts of “can’t miss” places from the folks here.
This is our starter list:
Franklin BBQ, Austin TX
Snows BBQ, Lexington, TX
Salt Lick BBQ, Driftwood, TX
Kreutz Market, Lockhart, TX
Big Bob Gibson BBQ, Decatur, AL
Rodney Scotts, Charleston, SC
Who else should we add to the list?
