Restaurants & Bars Boston Area BBQ

I have read a couple of threads on CH regarding BBQ in the area, but most of them have other topics interwoven. I would like to dedicate this thread to just talking about authentic american BBQ joints. It can be a restaurant, take out, truck on the side of the road, etc. Just want your ideas for the best cue in New England! I will start:

Blue Ribbon- Arlington: My favorite by a country mile.

Redbones- Somerville: Good 'cue. Great restaurant atmosphere. Meat could be a tad smokier.

Lester's- Billerica: Average to slightly above average (last time I had it was in 2006, so not sure if it has improved).

Tennessee's- Peabody, multiple locs: Was good in late 90's, now it is terrible under new management. They seem to cut lots of corners with the smoking process.
