BBQ is serious game so when picking THE best BBQ in Massachusetts you’re bound to ruffle a few feathers but here we go anyway. I love sooooo many barbecue joints. I don’t discriminate. Sweet BBQ. Mustard-based BBQ. Brisket. Ribs. Pulled pork and chicken. It’s all good to me. Just don’t go easy on those collard greens and corn bread, that can be my meal right there.
These picks aren’t my picks, that would just be one guy’s point of view. Instead I took a lot of time going through every article I could find that claimed they had the definitive best BBQ list in Massachusetts. They all differed so how could they actually each be the definitive list?? Mine is by no means “definitive” either – BUT – hopefully it’s the closest list we got! I took the top 5 from each list and gave their 5th place 1 point, 4th place 2 points, 3rd place 3 points, 2nd place 4 points, and 1st place 5 points. Then I added up the points… and this countdown popped out!
And while we’re talking Massachusetts food, THESE ARE THE BIGGEST FOODIE TOWNS IN MASSACHUSETTS, RANKED. Did your town or neighbor make the list??
OK, on with the ‘Q!
