America's 5 best BBQ hot spots

I've been to 2 of 5. I knew the one in Urbana, IL was amazing...and I've tried everything in Kansas and Illinois and my two favorite are definitely 2 and 5 on this list. Champaign has a really good BBQ place called Hickory River, as well. Amazing that I grew up in Kansas and lived in Dallas and 2 of my top 3 BBQ joints are in Champaign, Urbana. This list gives me a little vindication I guess. I'm not crazy after all!

You'll have to forgive my ignorance.

What's AB's? Or is that the actual name?

I don't need to ask to see the meat or ask for a lean sandwich at Jack Stack, OK Joe's. Arthur Bryants or a myriad of other BBQ restaurants in the city.
No I understand completely. Nothing is worse than paying good money for BBQ and getting a crappy sandwich. I won't eat at Wyandotte BBQ for just that reason. I've been there twice, and both times my food was total shit.

When Gates is on, it's on. When it's off, it's off. Plus it depends what location you eat at. 18th and Brooklyn has the most consistent food. The Gates out in the suburbs are the most inconsistent for some reason.

Gates in Independence on US 40 is open on Sunday. It's about three miles due east of the stadium.

They'll chop it up for you if you like. Just ask for a pork sandwich chopped.

This is the Gates at I-435 and State Line. If you're outside KC, this is what Gates looks like:

I'll give you this, Gates used to be much better. But it's been a long time. They are living on their reputation from days gone by.

Anyone else tried The Rub, at K-10 and Ridgeview? I've been there a few times and it's pretty damn good.

The thing about Gates is, it's maddeningly inconsistent with both food quality and service.

When they are on their game, their ribs, brisket and turkey are wonderful. Sometimes you get a fatty beef sandwich, or grisly ribs. You just have to ask to see the ribs first, or ask for your sandwich "lean as possible".

The help can be anywhere from overly-attentive to clueless. Ollie Gates is famous for being a skin flint with counter help wages, so they constantly burn through people. Some of them aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer.

Gates BBQ sauce is IMHO among the very best. It has a unique signature flavor. Bryant's sauce is also unique. The two sauces are different as night and day, but both are delicious and unmistakable.
That's a very good summation. I would add that the fries are always good for whatever that's worth.

Gates has always been my favorite sauce, and nothing else I've tried has really come close. I can drink that stuff straight.

I've been to BBQ joints throughout OK and TX and have been to many well known KC establishments. If a noobie ever asks me a bout Jack Stack, I will quickly say "**** that place!"

Taking my girlfriend to AB's Sunday after the game.

Her first legitimate BBQ experience. We'll see how the Wisconsinian enjoys it.
