Thumbs up RustNRoll..nice write up. My next trip from Phoenix will include BBQ stops recommended here. I'll have to go out of the way but these sound worth it.
BTW: you sure Mikes not a relative..maybe it's just the face fuzz Razz

RustNRoll I never have any doubts about recommending Oklahoma Joes and the Zman. In the past year Maxim and Men's Health have named Oklahoma Joes the best BBQ in the World. But it is not that distinction which makes me recommend them to people inquiring. It is responses like yours.....testimonials from people that love good Q and search out good Q on their travels. I trust that much more than editors of magazines headquartered in New York. Glad you enjoyed your Q trip....thanks for the pictures and plan another trip thru here some time. There are a few more spots you could try and not be disapponted.

Wink the Zman!!!!!!

anyways, yeah, its so much fun going out and purposefully finding different and good places to eat. different styles, people, tastes, traditions. its so awesome. i cant wait for a more southerly swing to try those regions styles.

plus its alot of fun just showing what you did and sharing the experience, because thats what it is in the end. all 5 senses contributing.

Do I want to know what that is? Working in Manhattan, I can't begin to describe what is going through my mind at the moment.... Razz

lol he said boulevard beer, not back alley beer.

and btw, as an aside, as we were driving from ok joes to get back onto 70, we passed by boulevard beer. there was also a write up in the burnt ends mag that i got at ok joes too.
