STL Best BBQ in USA, Smokin Al's

Well I've been to just about every famous BBQ stand, joint, place, restaurant from Chicago to Memphis to Carolinas to Texas.

But of all the places I've been too, nothing takes it home like the biggest little secret in St. Louis and that would be Smokin Al's. The place is just phenominal, the ribs and shoulder are out of this world and the sauce is the best I've ever had by miles.

Not only is the BBQ the best in the country, the sides are amazing as well. The pork and beans are a meal in their own. Prices ... can't even be matched.

So if you haven't been to Smokin Al's try it and prove me wrong ... I dare ya. I give the place a 10 across all boards.

See you next time I'm in STL!!!!
