BBQ is super popular right now and given the fact that my last few trips to Memphis Blues have been incredibly disappointing I have decided to set out on a quest to find the Lower Mainland’s best BBQ. There will be 9 categories as follows;
1. Ribs. 2. Pulled Pork. 3. Beef. 4. Chicken. 5. Specialty Item. 6. Tap list. 7.Best overall.
Category 6 will depend on the restaurant being licensed. The overall winner does not necessarily have to have every category but it certainly won’t hurt. This challenge will take quite a while to complete given the amount of food and categories that are involved and I may need an assistant and Mr. Kevin Addy has graciously volunteered his services.
So what do I need from you? I’m glad you asked, if you know of a BBQ joint anywhere from Squamish to Hope I want to know about it. Even places that aren’t 100 percent BBQ but have a BBQ item or 2 on their menu will be considered, for example Big Ridge Brewing Company in Surrey will be in the pulled pork category even though that’s the only BBQ they serve.
The final results will be announced in one of my weekly articles and will be a mouth watering, meat lovers paradise. Start sending me those BBQ hot spots by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (just copy and paste the address). As always thanks for reading and don’t forget to check out my new gig at The Vancouver Observer as a real, honest to goodness restaurant critic/writer of random awesomeness.
