There was a style of local bbq - open pit, and ribs and meats would be placed inside. think sort of an inland western clambake or luau.
harry's used to be around LA (near today's sunset 5 and near sepulveda and santa monica) as was love's bbq
does anyone know of a place that serves THIS kind of bbq ?- (not texas, not kc, not north carolina, not santa maria tri-tip, no matter how good they are, not on this thread please).
and i'm sure some will weigh in on how bad that kind of bbq is as opposed to X type. fine, don't like it, just tell me where i can get some.
