Best. BBQ. Ever.

Few things are more American than barbecue and there are as many delicious variations as there are dedicated pit masters. The queue for 'cue at one popular Austin restaurant stretches down and around the block, while the mash-up of Korean and American-style barbecue draws a big crowd at a small Atlanta barbecue shack. There's succulent smoked chicken in Philadelphia and spicy jerk chicken in the Twin Cities. Plus, a dive bar is turning out delectable barbecue in Cambridge, Mass., and the San Fran restaurant whose signature barbecue platter comes with every meat, side and fixin' on the menu. Roll up your sleeves for the best barbecue ever. (Episode: EW0101H)
