I live in Studio City our Wholefoods is a hole in the wall. I've been to the Wholefoods in Pasadena; it's huge! But the Wholefoods in Glendale wins because it has BBQ! Pretty damn good Q. Yesterday they had brisket, pork, and chicken. No pork ribs.
Their BBQ is better than most BBQ only joints in L.A. The meats are heavily hickory smoked. The rub is unusual to me. Not spicy, its mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, cumin. You can see the smoker right out on the patio.
I hope it's a regualr thing.
