Take out BBQ between Thousand Oaks and Burbank

I've been put in charge of getting take out BBQ for a small party for a Sunday night and I was wondering about great BBQ places between Thousand Oaks and Burbank.
Should I make it easy on myself and just get Wood Ranch or Stone Fire Grill BBQ or is there something else in the SF Valley that I should try?
Ribs USA....?

      Do they still have the BBQ in the parking lot of Jim's Fallbrook Market in Woodland Hills, on Saturdays? It was pretty tasty.

      1. re: SoCalMuncher

        Yes, the BBQ is still there every weekend.

    2. Smoke City Market on Van Nuys Blvd. should do the trick...

        Smoke City is pretty good. The one time I've gone (so far) I got the combo with brisket (very good) and pulled pork (good). Portions looked a bit small at first but I got two hefty meals out of the meats and two sides (mac'n'cheese -- good, chili -- tasty but a bit thin). Haven't tried their ribs.

      2. Hardy's BBQ on Moorpark at Coldwater is great. Open Sat and Sun 2-7 in the lot behind the market.

        1. you're going to want to stay away from the bbq at ribs usa.
          smoke city is a good rec.
          some people like dr. hoggly wogglys in van nuys.
          some people like kc bbq in n. hollywood.

            smoke city or dr. hoggly woggly's could be great, but both have their detractors. some family members of mine find the smoke forward and less sweet taste of smoke city to be overwhelming, while others find dr. hoggly woggly's a little crude and a little too sweet. I like both very much for different reasons.

              Buy a little of both and mix them together? Sounds good to me.

          2. Smoke City is great. I like the ribs at Lenny's in Chatsworth, too. They have chicken & tri tip as well.
