Best BBQ?

I love southern BBQ and mustard based sauce, Brunswick stew is a must. Phone Post 3.0

I like all forms of bbq meat, but I don't thing bbq chicken gets the credit it deserves. A nice plate of chicken, sausage, potato salad and an iced tea.

Cire - Snow's BBQ is the answer.

Snow's BBQ is a Texas barbecue restaurant located roughly an hour outside of Austin, Texas in the small town of Lexington. In May 2008, Texas Monthly rated Snow's BBQ as the number-one BBQ joint in Texas, defeating long time champions Kruez Market in Lockhart, Luling City Market in Luling, Louie Mueller in Taylor, and Smitty's Market in Lockhart.[1] In May 2013, Snow's was ranked in the Top 4 on the magazine's every-five-years Top 50 list.[2]

Snow's BBQ has also been labeled as "The Best Texas BBQ in the World" by The New Yorker in its article titled "By Meat Alone" written by Calvin Trillin in the November 24, 2008, issue.[3] Phone Post 3.0

Here's a good article on Snow's an how it became the best BBQ in Texas.

Snow's is good but even the article you linked states that Franklin's has become acknowledged as the best in Texas (although I find the ribs there average at best).

Snow's is a pain in the ass because it's only open on Saturdays and who wants to make a 2 hour round trip for BBQ at 645am? If I feel like something different from LaBBQ or Franklin's, I'll just head down to Lockhart. Because sweet Jesus, the beef rib at Blacks is a gift from God. Phone Post 3.0

MuchRespec' - I gotta admit that Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City was real good last time I had it, which unfortunately was 15 yrs ago...

But nothing is better than a legit Texas brisket. Phone Post 3.0

Bryant's meat is incredible. It's meat candy, fuckin melts in your mouth. Their sauce isn't for everyone because it isn't sweet, but I love that stuff.

Don't let the New Yorker endorsement fool you, it is really good. It's just not a 2 hour drive on a Saturday morning past Franklin's good. Phone Post 3.0

My memory may be escaping me, but I believe Kreuz had no sauce, but that was the only place I ever went to in Texas that didn't.

Since BBQ has exploded, everyone who goes to these places expects sauce, so it is supplied. However, if you watch anyone from Texas cook BBQ and talk about it, they will frown on sauces. Some places don't use it.

The combo of an over reliance on salt and pepper mixed with little sauce, or poorly thought out sauces, doesn't do it for me. In my opinion the south has more complexity and more unique choices. 

Texas is the beef capital, so they favor a ton of beef on their menus. I like to see some pork, and some sweetness.
