Speak Up, Fans: Where Do You Eat the Best BBQ Ever?

Before you tune in to Best. BBQ. Ever., FN Dish wants to know where you go to enjoy the ultimate 'cue.

Few foods are as ignited as barbecue, since fans from Memphis, Kansas City, Texas and beyond all lay claim to the ultimate version. And on tonight's brand-new episode of Best. BBQ. Ever. (airing at 10|9c), your favorite Food Network chefs and stars will add their voices to the debate as they show off their picks for sweet and saucy barbecue across the country.

Before you tune in tonight to see what dishes the cast has chosen for its Best. BBQ. Ever. feature, FN Dish wants to know: Fans, where do you go to dig into the best-ever barbecue? What local hot spot — perhaps a well-known neighborhood favorite or a hidden gem in town — turns out the most-mouthwateringly tender meat and crave-worthy sides? Is it a family-run 'cue joint with just a few tables or a monstrous meat hall with smoky scents filling the air? Leave a comment below, tell us on Food Network's Facebook page or Food Network's Google+ page, or tweet @FoodNetwork using #BestBBQEver to tell us your local restaurant picks and share your version of the ultimate barbecue. FN Dish will round up your answers and reveal your top selections on Thursday.
