In the name of Barbecue Week, Eater wants to know: which barbecue spot makes your absolute favorite smoked meats ever? Are the Franklin Barbecue lines worth the trays of tender brisket at the end of the long wait? Would you rather bide your time with La Barbecue instead? Or do you mix it up with the fusion offerings from Valentina’s Tex-Mex BBQ? Do you keep it in the Mueller family with John Mueller Meat Co.? Or do you opt for the underrated but excellent offerings of Brown’s Bar-B-Que?
Make your selection from the list below, all presented in alphabetical order. For the purposes of this list, restaurants that originated elsewhere and expanded to Austin weren’t included (This means Black’s BBQ and Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que). If your favorite spot isn't even on the list, make your case in the comments below. Voting ends on Thursday, June 16 at 11:55 p.m.
