Barbecued pulled pork never gets any better than it is at the Turnagain  Arm Pit in Anchorage, Alaska.

In Oz "BBQ lovers" has a bit of a different connotation.  

We love BBQ's cause it means all the guys standing around in the sun, talking, waving away the flies, drinking beer, while the sausages, steak, chops, prawns, onions, pineapples ... get seared and blackened.  The kids are playing on the lawn and the wives/girlfriends chat and make the salads and pav's.

I guess that doesn't happen too much in Anchorage :)

Best Q I have had was at Jim Olivers Smokehouse in MountEagle TN.

We have serious food scenes in the PNW, but real southern bbq is nothi g to be trifled with.

Second best Q I have had was 2 miles from my house.  A cook from the Carolinas came in and opened up shop.  Hes winning a lot of first places for pulled pork (my fave).

Love me some Rendezvous dry-rubbed ribs!

Interstate Barbeque in Memphis is pretty darned good as well!

Latham's in Jackson is world-class if you ever drive I-40 from Memphis to Nashville.

In Mexico Nuevo we have a delicious Memphis barbeque place in Albuquerque called The Cube, owned by real Memphians who cook real Memphis barbeque. But no potato chips?

There's also an Arkansas barbeque joint called Whole Hog here in Santa Fe. Six different sauces on the table! But the pecan-smoked meat is a little sweet for my taste compared to the traditional Memphis hickory-smoked.

The local mesquite-smoked pork and cabrio (goat) here in northern New Mexico can hold it's own as well, when done properly.

BBQ is one of the South's great exports, like NASCAR and competitive bass fishing.

Any more, you can find pretty good BBQ all over the place, and as certain things are not very hard to do well (pulled pork, and spare ribs are pretty easy), the fact that it's still possible to find bad BBQ (parboiled ribs drowned in a cloyingly sweet BBQ sauce) is kind of surprising.

You can even get decent, wood-smoked BBQ in Pittsburgh these days, Pittsburgh is where you want to be when the world ends (as it will be the last place to hear about it).

I tried that Anchorage Barbeque when I was there ... then I tried barbeque in North Carolina. Thank you Asheville,  thank you Raleigh.

Now the Moose's Tooth in Anchorage -- Micro brew beer and the best pizza I've ever had. Killer combination.

I had three go-to places in my area: a biker bar (!) called the Bridgeport (PA) Ribhouse, which delivers a variety of slow-smoked meats and reliable sides; Phamous Phill's BBQ on Germantown Pike near Collegeville PA, which, in addition to great barbecue, has a side called "Southern Fries", which is to say loaded (Cheez Whiz, peppers, onions) fries topped with your choice of pulled pork or beef brisket; and (the late :cry:) Tommy Gunn's BBQ in the Wissahickon section of Philadelphia.

Had a good "chain" BBQ experience recently. http://mission-bbq.com/ opened several stores in our area recently.  The food was good, portions large, priced right.  Good place to take the family.  :D Barbecue purists may sniff at the chain experience as a whole--and to be honest, there's another BBQ chain restaurant in our area that doesn't win points for cleanliness--but it's a good introduction to the BBQ world.

Best local place to me is Eli's BBQ in Cincinnati, but this is nowhere near the top I've had.

Best BBQ I've had is Joe's Kansas City BBQ (formerly known as Oklahoma Joe's).
