Finger Licking Awesome: America's Best Barbecue Restaurants

Whether you're into dry rubbed, hickory smoked or sweet-n-saucy, you'll get a major mouthful of meaty goodness at these top BBQ restaurants.
As we head into summer, grills across the country will flare up in anticipation of some serious flame-based cooking.

Though styles vary from region to region—dependent on sauces and meats—one thing is for sure, barbecue done well is something to savor. Here, a look at some of the best barbecue joints across the 50 states.
