    I am an unabashed equal opportunity carnivore, so it's all good to me.

    But as a native, fifth-generation Texan, brisket, potato salad, slaw, beans with pickles and onions on the side is my soul BBQ. Add a jalapeno and you're close enough to complete joy on a plate for me. It makes me think of San Jacinto, Hood's Texas Brigade, Texas Swing, ranches as far as the eye can see and low taxes. What could be better?

    Oh, my brother, take off your sandals, for you are on sacred ground. I remember a party my next door neighbor had some years ago. Jose and Rosa Martinez, only in the US (legally, I might add) for three years, invited their whole family over for the occasion. Of course, this was well over two hundred people. We also were invited. Yes, the kid was roasted, as well as the pit pig. I can assure you, you have not lived until the orangish-brown grease drips from your tortilla and down your arm from the rich carnitas and chilies therein; with frest cabrito pulled right off the carcass and draped into the mouth with gentle savage glee. Oh, did the Carta Blanca, Modelo Pacifico and of course Metzcal flow! Many worms died that day!

    We have a mama goat and kid in the back yard. Mama gives milk so she stays. Junior is a boy, so he's going to be curried sooner than later... last time, we did have it on a spit over a fire and whoa man, it was awesome.

    I believe before leaving office President George W. Bush made an executive order establishing Texas as the unchallenged king of BBQ, watch Obama turn that one over!:p:lol:

    I am also a big fan of Germantown Commissary. The service isn't too great but the food is amazing.

    I am no expert on BBQ styles as I don't travel and don't know the difference between them. But we like Famous Dave's in Wisconsin... ??

    North Carolina is vinegar...South Carolina is mustard. BTW, North Carolina is the best for BBQ.

    Has anyone ever had BBQ in Kentucky? They use mutton! I don't recommend it.

    BTW, I do like brisket. I just don't call it barbecue.

    Clearly, ETexas has never been to Kansas City. But we must forgive him. Texans are hopelessly provincial. :D

    Depends on the style of BBQ I'm a "jonesin" for at the time. I like 'em all.

    I'm a proud carnivore. ;)

    I've had goat BBQ out in West Texas that was delicious. A Fourth of July tradition.

    It is if there is mesquite or hickory smoking, wine or vinegar and spices marinating and Sweet Baby Rays with a few of my special additions to it involved.:judge:

    Grilling is high heat. Barbecue is low heat. Nuff said.

    Would slow walking ribs for about 2 hours qualify?

    Young goat and mutton taste pretty close to the same. Range fed lamb BBQed properly is simply impossible to better. The best place for pork it at the bottom of the sea.

    Me thinks that the pollster was afraid to put Kansas City on the list out of fear.

    Here is where you find a list of BBQ joints in KC along with reviews from the Gastronomical Appreciation Society here in KC:

    GAS Barbecue - Kansas City

    You've heard of pub-crawling, KC is the only city that I know of that uses the term BBQ-crawl.

    Actually, that is pretty quick. It is better than most folks who cook ribs on a grill, but in reality ribs come into their own after about four hours. Like I said, barbecue is slow and low.

    I am cooking ribs on Saturday. I may throw a pork shoulder on Friday evening if have the time. If you are in the area, come on over.
