Baby Blue's rocks. What I like the best there is their Mac and Cheese.
Mine! A couple slabs of baby back ribs and a couple boston butts, 10 hours of love and smoke while listening to Junior Wells on the back deck speakers. Now that's a way to spend a Saturday.
I'm getting spring fever! What a winter.
+1 on Oklahoma Joe's and for Texas, I'd add Smitty's Market in Lockhart.
It has been a winter! Soon to fire up the Weber Bullet and dry rub ribs, St. Louis Style, of course. Taj Mahal to accompany :) John
Memphis style: Corky's Memphis
Runners up The Barbeque Shop Memphis and The Commissary in Germantown (just east of Memphis)

Texas Style: Coopers in Llano TX
King's Palace, Beale St., Memphis

Sorry about the wrong link to Jack's Stack:

Grinnell: "If it ain't from KC it just ain't BBQ"...truer words never spoken!
Rum Boogie Cafe' Beale Street in Memphis, Tn. Their ribs and pulled pork sandwiches are excellent.
Twin Anchors on Sedgewick in Chicago (couple of blocks north of downtown) - baby backs to live for
Jackstack is in Martin City, to me its not all that good, the sister store on wornell, north of 435
is way better, this place has the best beans in the country... and the there is Odens in belton,mo just dang good. Don't like Gates, way overpriced for what it is, same with JackStack (BTW the one in Downtown KC also)

Another good one is Rosedales on southwest trafficway.

There are many in KC... BB's & LC's they are all good!
Keep the love coming--I picked up 10 new places to try!
Thanks for the tip on Baby Blue's. I never knew about it and its just a short drive from me. I think I'll check it out this weekend.

Not barbeque, but to widen the culinary scope a bit, one of the most memorable places I have eaten at was Buster Holmes in New Orleans back in the 70's. Famous for their red beans and rice. Too bad its long gone. Their offerings would go well with any blues/soul/jazz.
