Guy Fieri of Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives visit three of America’s top barbecue joints in this episode, Real Deal BBQ.
Guy’s first stop is Gardena, CA where he visits Jay Bee’s BBQ, run by Beverly Neely, sister of Jim Neely of Interstate BBQ in Memphis, TN. Jay Bee’s is known for their pulled pork, brisket and ribs. They make their famous BBQ sauce 3 times every day.
Next up is Smoque BBQ in Chicago, IL. Three friends decided they had enough of the IT world and turned their hobby into a business. Texas Style Brisket, Memphis Ribs and Carolina Pulled Pork are featured on their menu. Smoque BBQ is teaching a Baby Back Ribs town the virtues of St. Louis Style Spare Ribs and winning converts along the way. They have won numerous accolades from Chicago area and National media.
The final stop of this tour is Rick Schoenberger’s BBQ Shack in Paola, KS. Serving all the staples of Kansas City Barbecue, the BBQ Shack also features whole hog by special order. Here, Guy is treated to some smokin’ Jalapeńo poppers. After the smoke clears, BBQ Shack is a clear winner.
So no matter where in the country you are, take this opportunity to catch up on some real barbecue joints service real barbeque. And when that hunger for some real smoked meat builds to where you just can’t stand it, get out and find some real barbecue where you live.
