* We follow a strict methodology for reviewing a barbecue restaurant.  We believe in the Holy Trinity of barbecue: brisket, ribs, and sausage.  However, there is a lot more to it than just this.  The sausage must be the original offering for the establishment, not a specialty product (i.e., jalapeno cheese sausage, etc.).  The rib must be a pork spare rib, not baby-back, and not a beef rib.  Beef ribs are extracurricular!  The brisket must be ordered in a similar fashion, not simply off the menu.  This oftentimes requires personal communication with the meat man himself, asking for the juiciest, moistest, blackest pieces available (you know, the GOOD stuff!)
