best of... in a day [Moved from Manhattan board]

My friend and I are coming to NY for four days on a food trip. Each day we want to focus on one food and taste the "best" of each, outer boroughs included. We are thinking pizza, hamburgers, bbq and are deciding on the last one.

Can anyone suggest some plans of action. Here is what we were thinking, but this is tentative:

Pizza- Nick's in Forest Hills, Full Moon on Arthur Ave (maybe a hero at mike's for fun), Pasty's in East Harlem, Una Pizza Naplotena, Lombardi's, Grimaldi's, Di Fara and possibly one in Staten Island.

Burgers- Dumont Burgers in Brooklyn, Spotted Pig, White Manna in Hackensack (suggestion of a friend), union square cafe, Burgers Joint, Molly's (at the suggestion of seemingly everyone on this board)

BBQ- dinosaur BBQ, daisy may's, R.U.B (need some more suggestions, especially in outer boroughs)

I feel like we have pizza under control, but burgers and bbq need more insight. Anyone suggest a 4th category? We were thinking something more upscale.

Thanks. I will try to write a trip report once our itinerary comes together.
