Barbecue near Silverlake?
I'm having some friends over to watch my Gators stomp Tennessee on Saturday and want to pick up some good barbecue for the occasion. I am well aware that there is not really any good barbecue in Silverlake itself, but does anyone know of any great places in the vicinity?
If Matt Esq. is willing to venture to downtown LA, I would suggest either BBQ King or Showbiz Ribs.
BBQ King does a good rendition (for LA standards anyway) of Texas-style ribs. http://www.texasbbqking.com/index.php
Showbiz does a pretty decent vinegar based sauce for their que. http://showbizribs.com/index.html
I think both places are a notch better than Spring Street, but then bbq is like sushi around here ... everyone's got an opinion and everyone is, of course, right.
I would call Jay at J&J Burgers & BBQ and order a party tray, they have different sizes. I know Adams east of Fairfax is not Silver Lake, but you will be happy.

Do what I did last Saturday for the SC/Ohio St game, followed by the Marquez fight.
I fired up my grill and grilled 10 lbs of chicken hot wings, some bratwursts, and hot Italian sausages. Good times in Echo Park!
