Good, inexpensive BBQ on the west side???

I am looking for some cheap BBQ...I've been to a place on Pico (name escapes me) which was amazing, but I also spent $35 all in (Mr. Cecils, whish is AMAZING, just $$$$), for ribs and some side dishes.

Any and all recommendations are welcomed.

    1. I like Outdoor Grill in Venice. Its where Washington Blvd. and Washington Place meet / diverge (depending on which direction you're going). Good BBQ without breaking the bank.

      1. Not really west side, but J&J Burger Shack & BBQ is very reasonable and good. on Adams, 2 blocks east of Fairfax. It is near the 10 frwy and Fairfax/LaCienega.

        1. There is a Santa Maria BBQ place on Washington in Culver City by the new movie theatre--Im not sure what the cross street is. I've only had it once but it was pretty good.

            If this is for lunch no worries but if for dinner I don't think they are open at night.

          2. Porky's on Manchester Blvd. in Inglewood. Everything is good.
