For those who know:

Opinion on top three barbeque joints for following categories:

1) Ribs
2) Chopped pork
3) Brisket

  1. I'm not much of a rib lover nor a brisket eater so I'll defer to others there. I've had brisket exactly once at Costa's. It had a good flavor with a nice smoke ring, but I can't compare it to anyplace else. But for chopped pork (I prefer a good mix of inside and outside brown), my fav is Bob Sykes in Bessemer. Moist, smokey flavor with good "char".

      1. Golden Rule has been dismissed quite a bit on the Boards but...Here's the secret. Ask for the pork BBQ PULLED. They don't advertise it because it takes more time....but they will do it. Heaven.
