Kevin’s BBQ Joints – Official Launch – BBQ Joint Search Engine

After two years of researching and planning, I am finally happy to report that I have launched my beta-version of Kevin’s BBQ Joints – BBQ Joint Search Engine. The over 3,000+ BBQ joints can be searched by city/state, zip code, or street address as well as a general search by individual state.

One key feature that we knew was important was the ability to filter out BBQ chains if you didn’t want to have them come up in your search (you’ll notice the ‘filter out chains’ to the right of the search button). Test it out to see what the results are.

Another important aspect to the site are the compilations of joints that sell their meat online and those that sell their rubs and sauces online.

The main reason I did this was for you to have ability to find BBQ (hopefully good BBQ) wherever you are or wherever you are traveling too.

Look for more features to be added in the near future that will add further to your BBQ joint and BBQ experience. Also, if I’m missing a joint, if a new one crops up, or if sadly one closes, please feel free to contact me to let me know. I am going to be updating this site daily.

New Location – Choo Choo BBQ Xpress – Blufton, SC

From the I’m a little embarrassed to be typing the BBQ joint name files, Choo Choo BBQ Xpress is moving to a permanent location per Island Packet.

OK, it’s not that bad a name, just sounds funny when I read it out loud. Seems there is a large fan base that’s been waiting for what they describe as “Bluffton’s BEST traditional slow-cooked, hand pulled pork, chicken and ribs.”

Here’s their new spot:

Weekend BBQ Joint – Jim’s Fallbrook Market – Woodland Hills, CA

Every Saturday and Sunday in the parking lot of Jim’s Fallbrook Market (a small specialty market in Woodland Hills, CA), there’s always a large gathering of people getting BBQ from Calabasas Custom Catering. The throng is mixed with a generous helping of wonderful meaty smoke (you can actually smell it from about a block away).

They use a large crank grill so they can raise and lower the meats according to how much they need to cook them at a given moment (generally it seemed they had their grates at a 1/3 up level).

Grand Opening – Uncle Mike’s BBQ – White Center, WA

BBQ Joints are springing up around the country like smoke flavored weeds (that’s good for us BBQ loving folks, that is, if the joint is good). Courtesy of the West Seattle Blog, Uncle Mike’s BBQ just opened in White Center, WA. Their website and facebook page aren’t up yet, but here’s their first Yelp review. Sounds like this one might be a keeper, but I’ll be sure to update this post with photos and additional information as it becomes available.

Taylor Takes a Taste – North Carolina BBQ

Just in case you missed Taylor Mathis’ post a week ago on his visit to Jimmy Hagood’s catered events in the North Carolina Moutains, you’re missing out. There are great pics of Jimmy’s Big Red Rig (which has two smokers, gas burners, a charcoal starter and pretty much everything else you’d need to do a proper NC BBQ) and his step by step BBQ process.

Here’s a ‘taste’ of two of the photos:

New BBQ Joint – Silver Street BBQ – Lebanon, OH

Per the Dayton Daily News a new BBQ joint has opened up in downtown Lebanon, OH. Silver Street BBQ recently opened by owners Aparajit Agarwal and Noel Catanzaro (a former chef at Montgomery Inn and Boat House) with the low and slow method in mind. In talking to the joint, I found they use a custom built motorized rotisserie smoker with 16 eight foot racks that can hold up to 400 hundred lbs. of meat. They try to keep their temps between 200 and 225.

Their BBQ offerings includes pulled pork, brisket, chicken, and baby back ribs. They also serve three varieties of barbecue sauce. I haven’t had the chance to stop in yet so I’d love to here what you think. Looks like they are trying to stay true to real BBQ.

Check them out here.
