1. Barbecue isn’t something you throw on the grill. Barbecue is gently cooked for hours.
2. Good barbecue restaurants always have a common denominator: Substance is always more important than style. Don’t waste time or money on the dining room. Instead, perfect your pork.
3. Checkered tablecloths
4. Never drown your meat. Leave the sauce on the side.
5. Good barbeque joints are rarely housed fancy buildings
6. Restaurant chains are never as good as local places
