While plenty of people have documented their journeys to all the Major League stadiums, theme parks, national parks, monuments, and presidential assassination destinations across this great land, we can think of no better adventure to take with your friends and family than finding the best, most unique, and authentically American barbecue eateries in the country. These are the places that serve the best brisket, ribs, and pulled pork, all in their own different, and largely regional styles. From New York to the midwest, the dirty south, Texas, and all the way to the west coast, whether they use lots of sauce or dry rub, the one thing all of these joints have in common is that they're all places meat lovers should make the trip to visit.
BrisketTown - Brooklyn, NY
As Brooklyn’s self-described house of meat, BrisketTown is a great place to start out on any meat-themed road trip. There are no fancy plays on barbecue at BrisketTown, just solid, no-frills Central Texas-style eats. Their brisket is rubbed with salt and pepper and then smoked for fifteen hours until perfectly tender. The sides you can skip, but don’t forget to check out their seasonal pie menu for dessert.
What to Order: The Brisket, obviously. It’s right there in the name.
