BBQ'ing for College Credit

You may have heard of these college boys in Alabama, but from where I stand, they be the smartest kids I've heard about in a long while. They've convinced their univerisity to give them college credit to eat BBQ all over the south and write about. Having done this type of "work" myself for a few years in Texas, and receiving little credit of any kind, I'm a bit jealous. Either way, they've got a great website called Southern BBQ Boys ,

and they've gotten some press lately as well. Enjoy the articles and reminisce about the time you wasted in college not eating BBQ for credit hours.

Your analysis, backed by your process, is top notch. Nothing against those boys, but that's one extended college road trip. And a lot of fun at that.

Your analysis is outta sight. Keep up the outstanding and unequivocal work.


Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
