BBQ on Cue
Hauling cords of hickory, prepping slabs of meat, tending the smoker (and, hello, owning a smoker): Real barbecue is a ton of work. Mail-order 'cue to the rescue! We ate our way through a conference room full of meat to arrive at this smokin' selection.
Black’s Barbecue, Texas
Fatty End Brisket, $67.99 for 4 pounds (serves 8)
So unctuous and scrumptious, this special brisket cut is hard to find at a butcher.
Jack Stack Barbecue, Kansas City, Missouri
BBQ Beef Burnt Ends, $40.95 for 1 pound (serves 2)
These smoky, tender morsels have craveable crispy edges.
Salt Lick BBQ, Texas
Roberts' Family Special, $34.95 for 1 rack of pork ribs and Original Recipe BBQ Sauce (serves 3)
This dramatic rack of ribs is already juicy and rub-crusted. Just glaze it with the sauce and reheat.
