I love barbecue and thought it would be fun to try and put together a comprehensive directory, of authentic BBQ restaurants in the United States. And when I say authentic BBQ I’m talking about restaurants that use wood or charcoal to slow-cook their meat at a low temperature. Don’t get me wrong, I love grilling but it is a different animal.

I have done my best to only include restaurants that I feel fall into this category and I have also tried to make sure that the restaurant is still in business. If you feel that any of the restaurants in this directory don’t meet the criteria state above, please feel free to contact me and let me know.

This site is a work in progress and I hope to port some version of it to mobile devices in the near future. In the mean time, I will continue to add sites and I hope that you will help me do the same.
