I have a job that allows me to travel all over Al and MS and I really like trying different BBQ spots. I am in Madison today and stopped by Chuck Wagon BBQ for the second time and once again I was impressed. The food was fantastic as long as you don't min waiting in line for 25 mins to get your food. I have eaten at many good BBQ spots but I am aleways on the lookout for some that may even be off the beaten path. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them, even I it is not in AL or MS.

what style of BBQ does AL produce?

Seems everywhere is a little different style and/or even meat types (beef (brisket, tri-tip, whole loin, whole sirloin, short ribs, etc), pork (babyback ribs, St. Louis ribs, butts, thick cut chops, etc.), chicken, sausage, turkey, etc.) ... I know there are at least 4 or 5 different styles of brisket in Texas alone.

Man you must be going to the Vietnamese BBQ place.

We have brisket, pulled pork, sausage at some, beef and pork ribs, chicken, etc. it is similar here as there are a few different types. I am not one for a vinegar based sauce but more of a ketchup based. In North Al several places have a watery vinegar based sauce as their regular then a thicker sauce they call rib sauce which is what I prefer. Thy also have white sauce which is more prevelant in north Alabama but it is starting to migrate south. The white sauce is typically better for chicken but my wife prefers it over the regular sauce. I found a guy in Birmingham that has a little trailer and I think his is some of the best and most tender meat I have had. He specializes in beef ribs and pork. He keeps the menu simple but I am a pretty simple guy so I will keep coming back plus I like to support the little guys.

You can get just about any style of BBQ in AL, it just depends on where you stop.

CC2MC, most of the places that I frequent are in B'ham but I'll only list two there. These are a few of my favorites from around the state. All aren't BBQ but great dishes at BBQ places.

Moe's BBQ in B'ham. There smoked Turkey in white BBQ sauce is great. They also have a very different (not creamy) slaw that I really like.
Full Moon BBQ in B'ham. The original place downtown is my favorite for the history.
Sam's BBQ in Fayette has the best smoked chicken wings that I've ever had.
Wolf's BBQ - they can be found on the strip for AL game days in T'town. I have no idea where there brick and mortar place is.

On a serious note, Neeleys Interstate in Memphis or on State Line Rd is the bomb (better that Rendevous imo)

How did you possibly leave out Carlisle's? It's 6th Ave So around 34th street...best ever.

Off the beaten path...Hooks BBQ in Troy, Luverne, and Opp Alabama is really good, If you got go to the original one in Opp try the Chili Dog Plate if you want something different.

In Montgomery and Troy (Montgomery has always been better to me) Country's BBQ is good and they garnish with marinated onions that are worth a stop to try them alone.

You just listed two of my favorites in B'ham. I live right between both of them. I usually go to Moes now before Full Moon, but I still think Full Moon is great. Unless I can find a brick and mortar for Wolf's the chances of me being in T'town on game day is pretty slim as i am an AU grad. I have eaten at Moes and Full Moon there though as well as the local favorite of Dreamland. Thanks for the suggestions. I will have to give Sam's a try next time I am over that way.

Besides the fact that it is so far from where I work, about 3 blocks...

I want to say that I have tried Hooks before but I can't remember which location. I am originally from Montgomery and my family used to eat at Country's every Sunday after church, but I haven't eaten there in a while. I remember they had good fries. Thanks for the suggestions! Keep em coming! (I know, that's what she said...) Never gets old.

Chuckwagon is about 5 minutes from my house. Good stuff, they are always packed at lunch
