Best BBQ!!

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I regularly smoke pork loin, ribs, chicken, turkey, jalapenos poppers, and various peppers but the most requested around my house is sausages. Every time I fire up the smoker, I am smoking sausage no matter what else I am smoking.

It's rare that I smoke without throwing on a few links, too. Nearly universal appeal.

Yes, but the family likes the German jalapeno from Klemke's and some we get from Sprout's as well.

Far be it from me to break my arm, but I have smoked pork ribs, beef ribs and brisket in MO, MI, TX, GA, IL, KS, AR, KY, TN and AL.

They say best ever.

In general, DIY smoking is better than BBQ from any joint, IMO, simply because you can focus on a much smaller amount of product. Plus, you can focus on what you (and your group) enjoys most.

Region dictates what's best.

TX= Brisket
TN= Pulled Pork
Memphis= Ribs

Smoked Turkey does not count as BBQ.
Whoa, now! Easy there.

Smoking a turkey on a grill is still a smoked turkey. No one who comes from the south ever thinks about smoked turkey when they think about BBQ. If a friend invites me over and says we're having BBQ and then brings out smoked turkey, I call that man a liar.

This doesn't mean that BBQ restaurants don't serve smoked turkey nor are BBQ techniques used on turkey, but it shall never be BBQ.

What about brisket? What about beef ribs? In some parts, BBQ is pork only.

Brisket and Ribs count because I ain't messing with Texas!

In my close to 40 years of eating BBQ I've never known one person in the south to refer to smoked turkey as BBQ. It's always smoked turkey. This is my hill to die on.

Hmm.. well, it is considered BBQ in Texas. I never thought about it that way until I moved here. Mrs. UB judges BBQ joints by their smoked turkey and their sausage. I judge them by their slice brisket.

Judging a restaurant on what they serve is extremely fair, no matter what it is. Smoked turkey can be great.

However, I have to stand by my definition. On the shore: I'll stand! On the sea: I'll stand! In the air: I'll stand!

I get it but you may have missed this: every BBQ place in Texas I have visited offer smoked turkey. So here, it seems, it is considered BBQ.

You should ask tuttle about "objective" facts.

I get it, too. They also serve sides and sometimes dessert but those aren’t bbq.

I was in Texas recently and stopped at a place that only served pork, ribs and brisket. Some of the best ribs I’ve ever had. So...
