Some of their top picks may surprise you

Killen's serves some of the best barbecue in Texas.

Great barbecue is a subjective matter, and there’s no shortage of spectacular barbecue joints across the country. But for all the listings of top barbecue restaurants out there, nobody’s thought to ask the guys who are arguably more close to it than anybody else: competition pitmasters. We did just that, and their picks for America’s best barbecue restaurants might surprise you.

America's Best Barbecue Restaurants, According to Prizewinning Pitmasters (Slideshow)

Certain barbecue restaurants — you know which ones — seem to get all the attention in rankings of America’s best barbecue joints. It’s even gotten to a point where many rankings are nearly identical. And though there’s no denying that those restaurants are all legendary and worthy of the high praise they consistently receive, it’s high time that some other, more off-the-radar restaurants made their way to the top of the heap. There are still some seriously renowned restaurants on our list, but we bet that you haven’t even heard of the vast majority of them.

We contacted more than 50 of America’s top competitive pitmasters and asked them to send us a list of their absolute favorite spots for barbecue across the country. Because these pitmasters are strictly competitive, they don’t run restaurants that they could be partial to, so there was no risk of a conflict of interest. Respondents included Brian Stefan of Southern Smoke, Mark West of 10 Bones, Christopher Prieto of Prime Barbecue, and the folks from Down to Smoke. These guys know their ‘cue, and these places are where they go to get it.

Read on to learn which barbecue restaurants competitive pitmasters told us are the best in America.


Advantages of Grass Fed Beef?

I grew up on a small farm and we sometimes slaughtered cattle for our family to consume. As far as I knew at the time, all beef was "grass fed". As I got older and traveled to different areas of the country, I learned that the majority of beef we purchase from a supermarket is not grass-fed but rather grain fed - on feed lots.

According to this article published on IdealBite.com, we should all consider eating more grass fed beef. "Grass-fed beef, bison, and lamb have less total fat, cholesterol, and calories than grain-fed. And grass-fed is a good source of potentially-cancer-blocking conjugated lineolic acid." Not to mention that grazing is usually better for the environment versus feed lots.

I, too, grew up on a ranch and we always had beef in the freezer. When I grew up and went away to college I thought that I was cooking my food incorrectly. Turns out it was the store bought beef. My dad laughed for quite a while when I asked him what I was doing wrong. There is a huge difference, but most of us get used to it. It's tough to get grass fed meat when you don't live in a farming community. Do you have any suggestions as to where to find affordable range beef in the city??

I think the local Publix near my house has it. You could try a web search for suppliers. You could try a local butcher. My local butcher can get anything I want. Or, you could ask at the supermarket and inquire as to why they don't carry it. Who knows, maybe they'll see the light.

Is there anyway to tell what bbq beef ribs in our supermarket is grass fed or grain fed by the package label?

In my experience, the label says grass fed beef on it.

Do you have any good beef bbq recipes?

I don't have a specific recipe but I have tasted the best rubs for all meats. You need to try the Artisan Rubs from , www.iprobbq.com. You won't be disappointed.

The BBQ guy is right. If it is grass-fed there will most certainly be a label. However, these labels have not been standardized yet - so buyer beware. Until "grass-fed" or some variant such as "pasture-fed" is legally defined, there is no way to know exactly how much grass was eaten or for how long it constituted the majority of the diet.

That being said, your best bet is to not worry about it. The grass-fed community has been pretty good at self-regulation.

Also, pasture ranchers are working on a standardized and legally-binding label. It will be much like that now found on certified organic products.

For those interested, I just published a post on finding good online grass-fed beef sources.

I enjoyed your post. If I may, I would like to suggest my farm web site.

Sumas Mountain Farms is the only producer of 100% certified-organic, lifetime grass-fed & finished beef in the Lower Mainland of BC (near Vancouver,
Canada). We also offer chicken, eggs, pepperoni, jerky, salami, sausage, farmer sausage, steak and more.

Because our beef is 100% grass-fed & finished, the quality of the meat is exceptional, and the flavor is unsurpassed. Plus, it is more nutrient-dense and packed with healthful Omega-3's than conventional beef, which is healthier for you, your family, and the planet.

Please visit http://www.sumasmountainfarms.ca/ for more information! We have plenty of recipes for you to try.

My dad laughed for quite a while when I asked him what I was doing wrong. There is a huge difference, but most of us get used to it. It's tough to get grass fed meat when you don't live in a farming community. Do you have any suggestions as to where to find affordable range beef in the city??

I think the local Publix near my house has it. You could try a web search for suppliers. You could try a local butcher. My local butcher can get anything I want. Or, you could ask at the supermarket and inquire as to why they don't carry it. Who knows, maybe they'll see the light.

Is there anyway to tell what bbq beef ribs in our supermarket is grass fed or grain fed by the package label?

In my experience, the label says grass fed beef on it.

Do you have any good beef bbq recipes?

I don't have a specific recipe but I have tasted the best rubs for all meats. You need to try the Artisan Rubs from , www.iprobbq.com. You won't be disappointed.

The BBQ guy is right. If it is grass-fed there will most certainly be a label. However, these labels have not been standardized yet - so buyer beware. Until "grass-fed" or some variant such as "pasture-fed" is legally defined, there is no way to know exactly how much grass was eaten or for how long it constituted the majority of the diet.

That being said, your best bet is to not worry about it. The grass-fed community has been pretty good at self-regulation.

Also, pasture ranchers are working on a standardized and legally-binding label. It will be much like that now found on certified organic products.

For those interested, I just published a post on finding good online grass-fed beef sources.

I enjoyed your post. If I may, I would like to suggest my farm web site.

Sumas Mountain Farms is the only producer of 100% certified-organic, lifetime grass-fed & finished beef in the Lower Mainland of BC (near Vancouver,
Canada). We also offer chicken, eggs, pepperoni, jerky, salami, sausage, farmer sausage, steak and more.

Because our beef is 100% grass-fed & finished, the quality of the meat is exceptional, and the flavor is unsurpassed. Plus, it is more nutrient-dense and packed with healthful Omega-3's than conventional beef, which is healthier for you, your family, and the planet.

Please visit http://www.sumasmountainfarms.ca/ for more information! We have plenty of recipes for you to try.

    As always, I didn’t like anything, it’s monotonous and boring.
