I read something about a great-sounding new uptown place for barbecue today, and it had me realizing that I haven't had barbecue in quite some time. While I'd love to head up there, I figure I'm more likely to actually go somewhere nearer to where I live.
A lot of my family is from the South, and I have not generally been impressed by what passes for barbecue up here. Not interested in a "variety of styles" or the upscaled stuff they do at Blue Smoke (though I won't lie, those cheese fries are awesome). I'd just like to go somewhere that does one style right (I'm not extremely partisan to any, though if I had to pick I'd say Memphis).
Any suggestions? I see a lot of back and forth about RUB, a lot of it seemingly negative.
