            there's a difference between these two sentences.
            any place you stop around there will have fantastic barbecue.

        Frick Blacks. It's good! Nothing wrong with it, just overrated. Nothing particularly special about it.

        Cooper's is better IMO. Their vinegar based sauce is awesome, it boosts the flavor of the bark and fat, and is incapable of masking the natural flavor of the brisket like other garbage molasses based sauces. Gotta get their pecan cobbler too.

        Franklin, and Pinkerton's is also great. Fantastic sides.

        He's right though, Texas is quantity over quality

        Lol cope. Texas has superior brisket and overall BBQ culture than the lesser 49. Eat your fkin pig. I don't even know what you mean by quantity, just get a couple pounds of brisket and maybe a couple sides. Real Texans don't get anything else.

        Yes, discussions about cuisines are moronic in the global society we live in today
        I'd rather judge a place by what selection they have. And US cities are pretty solid at providing that. So are Northwestern European cities.
        Italian cuisine is bad because in Italy there's not very much non-Italian food available. In London, I can find somewhere that has just as good Italian food, and nearby there's probably also some amazing Indian, Mexican, Chinese, a good burger place and Korean barbecue. Therefore, the food of London is better than Italy

        I'll give you another reason to do Louisville, the breweries. A new one pops up about every month or two now, probably because rent and land is cheap downtown thanks to the Black riots of 22. They open breweries in Louisville in old buildings, churches, warehouses, factories, etc. And some of them are fricking huge. They turned a whole city block into a brewery called West 6th Nulu. Best beer I've ever had in the US. A Fricking flawless Berliner Weisse sour.
        I'm checking out a new place in December that just opened called Butchertown brewing. They have a bunch of really unique sours like tropical punch, strawberry milkshake, guava colada. Pretty fricking weird, but looks awesome. Only in America. If you're into Bourbon, there are endless distilleries in the city too.

          Based Louisville-anon. I can also recommend Feast BBQ in addition to Mark's. Going across the Ohio to Jeffersonville and New Albany is also worth it for food and spirit. Definitely a slept-on town for food.

    The thing about BBQ is that what separates a a good joint form a bad joint is where they can consistently make good bbq day in and day out. This is also what makes it it fun to argue about since I can go to the place you recommend on a bad day and think it suck while you went on a good day and it was great. Having been to Texas I can say the bbq is pretty good. I think the sauces they use are shitty. Generally its a vinegar sugar type of thing that just leaves me underwhelmed. People have left the good spots listed here as far as texas goes.

    A list of good KC spots though that my specialty:
    Joe's BBQ on 3002 W 47th Ave, Kansas City, KS 66103
    It's fun that it's functional gas station still. Worth a visit. Get the Z-man sandwich

    Arthur Bryant's on 1727 Brooklyn Ave, Kansas City, MO 64127
    This isn't the worlds best but if you want "true" KC bbq this about the more pure experience you can get. Get some burnt ends by the pound.

    LC's BBQ on 5800 Blue Pkwy, Kansas City, MO 64129
    This is my personal favorite. I get the half and half burnt ends. Also, it's in the hood lock your car.

    Also my dad's pretty good at it. So if you want us to smoke you up brisket or pork. Hit me up.
