For the first stop on my (6) BBQ Joints in one day Los Angeles BBQ journey a few weekends ago I headed east on the 10 Freeway from the 405 towards Downtown. If you exit Crenshaw Blvd. and head south less than a 1/2 a mile you hit Phillips Barbecue, a spot that landed in the top 5 BBQ joints in Los Angeles according the LA Weekly.
Here are the photos from the visit (review to follow):
