Memphis is certainly barbecue heaven. Rendezvous may well be the largest barbecue joint I've ever visited, but IMHO hardly the best Memphis has to offer.

I think Central BBQ was the best I've found in Memphis.
Neely's barbecue spaghetti is the best spaghetti!!!

Blacks is excellent. Smitty's is great too although Chisolm Trail BBQ has better sides. I've eaten at Kreuz BBQ and it was very similar to Smittys althought I preferred the atmosphere at Smittys. Lockhart has the largest concentration of great BBQ places than any other Texas small town I've seen.

Yesterday I was saddened. Tips4U BBQ is no more. True to thier name the rib tips were fantastic. Its almost a good thing the sauce was unimaginative, because the meat carried the flavor. The service was wretched though and I suspect led the way to thier demise.

For Carolina lowcountry style, Bessinger's BBQ in the Charleston, SC area. Sweet mustard base sauce, and the onion rings are incredibly good. Not to mention the pork, brisket, ribs. We order the sauce from them shipped to us in FL.

I ate at Rocco's In Williamsburg, VA last week, meatest pork ribs I've ever had, and they weren't greasy. It's a new place across the street from Cracker Barrel on Bypass Road.
I only have to make it work till I retire.
