Best ski town Barbecue

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
When vacationing in my favorite ski towns, I search out the best barbecue beef brisket. My tape worm demands the best. So, my current favorite is Smokey Bones in Jackson. Vote for yours.

IMHO the Steamboat Smokehouse in Steamboat Springs, CO is a superior spot for smoked beef and pork.... as long as you don't mind peanut shells on the floor and paper plates.

In Frisco, CO I always look forward to Q4U. Really good soups and sandwiches there. Again, pretty low key with counter service.

When in Winter Park, CO I usually stop in to Smokin' Moe's. It's pretty good and a good value, but nothing to write home about.

Bubba's in Jackson Hole was fantastic for brisket.

Not exactly a ski town location, but Chubby’s BBQ in Emmitsburg, MD is very good; just a few miles south of Ski Liberty (south central PA) at the turn off from Route 15. Somewhat nondescript from the highway, this place gained some notoriety a while back by hosting an all-you-could-eat challenge for Washington Redskin’s lineman Randy Thomas that was televised by NBC 4 sportscaster Wally Bruckner. You know a place is serious about their BBQ when five kinds of BBQ sauce in big, old hand-labeled bottles rest on every table. I liked the one marked “Private Reserve”, but it was all good. The beef brisket and pulled pork were melt-in-your-mouth delicious when I ate there after a ski day in Jan 2006.
Just got back from a beach week in NC. Stopped by King's Restaurant in Kinston for all u can eat Sunday Buffet with pulled pork (Eastern NC vinegar style), pork chops, fried fish/shrimp/chicken, turkey&dressing, brunswick stew, creamed corn, collard greens, hush puppies and much more for $6.99!

Steamboat Smokehouse is the best I've had anywhere for a complete dinner, but the best pulled pork BBQ I've ever had is at the DoubleZ in Steamboat Springs. It's to die for.

OMG - this thread is getting me hungry for some good BBQ. Sorry I don't have a ref, jes here trolling . In my experience it's not something you find up in the mountains generally so there's certainly untapped potential there ripe for exploitation.

Cool, I'll definitely go back there. We were there once and thought it was pretty good but opted to go back to the Smokehouse. Since then we've gone back to Steamboat for a day or a night specifically for the Smokehouse This year we'll be there for a week or so. Pulled pork at the DoubleZ will surely be on the menu

I agree about the Smokehouse. I love throwing the shells on the ground, where is DoubleZ?

Willow Creek Saloon & Cafe has the best baby back ribs in Montana. Its a bit out of the way (35 miles from Bozeman and 80 from Big Sky) but well worth the drive for a unique dining experience.

ct55 - I noticed your location is central Mass. Maybe Bub's is nearby -- or on your way back from VT: http://www.bubsbbq.com/home.shtml . Meats are pretty good, especially considering it's not exactly BBQ country; but the best part of the deal is all-you-can-eat fixings. It's a few miles detour off of I-91, we try to stop on the way south from ski days in VT.

Blue Ridge Pig (in Nellysford) on the way to Wintergreen (VA) is awesome.

I stand by what I said three years ago. Lexington BBQ in Lexington, NC is the best in the world. I think even Bobby Flay has been there. I wish they would FedEx it. Just one BBQ sandwich with cole slaw on top, a side of hush puppies, and a huge glass of sweet ice tea.......

Where is it from Bozeman? North, south, east or west.

West of Bozeman, about 7 miles off Interstate 90. You take the Three Forks exit, drive into Three Forks and follow the sign pointing left to Willow Creek.

Kings's is okay. I used to stop there driving back from Oriental/New Bern. I've looked at the Oink Express menu a number of times. Unfortunately it is Eastern NC BBQ. I need Western NC BBQ. A Southern Season in Chapel Hill does ship a BBQ that comes close. I keep checking with Lexington BBQ and they mention something about health regulations.

Not really a big ski town, but the Dinosaur owns.

I've hit Dino on the way to Whiteface from Southern Ontario... Also the Rochester Dino is a good destination when skiing Bristol Mt.

And I agree, Dino owns. My brother travels all through the south on business, and has yet to find anything that measures up. Ditto for my friends who have moved to Atlanta.
