2014 Top 10 Barbecue in Los Angeles Area

The meaning of the term "barbecue" changes from one part of the country to another. But from Texas to Kansas City and across the Southeast, "barbecue" only means well-seasoned meat cooked "low and slow" over wood until the meat is infused with the perfume of the smoke and develops a pink "smoke ring." Memphis barbecue is especially known for its rubs. Texas prefers beef for barbecue, while pork is the basis of barbecue in the Southeast, although east Tennessee and western Kentucky have a tradition of mutton barbecue. The Midwest is especially fond of "burnt ends," from both beef and pork ribs. Sauces and sides vary widely, too. Whatever your pleasure, try one of these Top 10 Barbecue Restaurants in Los Angeles, presented in alphabetical order.
