Big Bob Gibson (Huntsville, Alabama) – Known for their white barbecue sauce, Big Bob Gibson’s is somewhat of a legend in Alabama. In fact, before our last trip to Huntsville my good friend told me that if I didn’t go there she would disown me. My biggest tip is to get there early because they will sell out of barbecue.
Mojo’s (St. Augustine Florida) -Reasonably priced, great BBQ! My son said the mac-n-cheese was like a party in his mouth and I have to agree. The only problem with this place is that there are so many good side items it’s impossible to pick just two! In cooler temps I recommend the outdoor dining area, but it’s not shaded so avoid it in the heat of the day! Mojo’s is downtown, but does have a small parking lot.
Old Hickory Barbecue (Owensboro, Kentucky) – If you’ve never tried mutton, Old Hickory is a great place to change that! In addition to their award winning mutton you can also feast on their pork or beef barbecue. Old Hickory has been serving up barbecue for 80 years so they must be doing something right!
Wiley’s Championship BBQ (Savannah, Georgia) – If you leave Wiley’s without having a plate of redneck nachos then you did it wrong! The brisket is out of this world, but you won’t go wrong with the beef or the pork! If you can’t decide, a sampler might be a good idea! The best part about the whole restaurant is how friendly and helpful the staff is, which is rare these days!
Payne’s Bar-B-Que (Memphis, Tennessee) – I have a barbecue secret that I want to share with you. It is this: bigger isn’t always better. Just because a restaurant has a big fancy location doesn’t mean that it is the best. Such is the case with Payne’s it is a hole in the wall, but the food is spectacular. The chopped pork sandwich is out of this world, and the sides are so good it is hard to choose.
So tell us, why do you love your favorite barbecue spot?
