When I was in Texas for a job we looked for trucks and pickups with stock trailers and cop cars in the parking lots when picking out BBQ places. We didn't care what the place looked like. In fact, we found the best food came out of wooden shacks with rusty tin corrugated roofs. The pickups with trailers were usually Texas Rangers.

Please point a former Texas guy to some good que! Not going to lie, have not found one yet but always looking. I’ve tried the chains around here and I’m hoping that’s not the best around. Also, a little off BBQ, where can I get SPICY fried catfish?

My two current favorites are Ray's BBQ (Moore and Norman) and Butcher BBQ. Butcher is a little out of the way but well worth the drive on a nice weekend day. It's near Wellston on 66 at the Turnpike. Check their website, they are open only a few days a week, Fri, Sat, Sun I think. Have heard good things from my son about Clark Crew (OKC) and The Meating Place (Norman). Haven't gotten around to trying them yet. They seem a little on the yuppy side but hey, who knows?

Roy's in Chickasha is serviceable.

The best I've had lately was at Hutchins in Frisco. Damn, it was really good.

I feel about most OK BBQ joints about like I feel about Roy's. Most of them are serviceable, but there aren't any I'd drive over 30 minutes to have. If I'm close at lunch or dinner time, I'll give them a go, but I'm not treking across country for any BBQ that I've had in OK.

Seems like there was recently a poll ranking Taco Bell as the best Mexican Restaurant in America. I don't put much stock in polls or rankings.
