Oh boy, being from the south; I am very picky about my BBQ. Southern Living Magazine has named 2 joints in Maine and New Hampshire that are road trip worthy; they won't disappoint!

Southern Living Magazine has complied a list of 'out of this world' BBQ joints in each state that they deem road trip worthy. The list is called 'The Great American Barbecue Bucket List'. Meaning, the BBQ at these restaurants is good enough to try before you die! Here is who they chose for Maine and New Hampshire.

Maine: Salvage BBQ and Smokehouse

You may be in northern New England, but from the moment you walk into this Portland gem, you’ll feel Southern-style hospitality in the air. Operating inside of a former salvage warehouse, there’s plenty of space to spread out. And after the Meat Coma (¼ ribs, ⅓ lb of both pulled pork and brisket, along with a bowl of chili and two sides), you’ll be particularly grateful. Don’t skip the sauces. They run the gamut from mild Carolina-style to four-alarm vinegar. salvagebbq.com

 

 

New Hampshire: Goody Cole's Smokehouse and Catering Co.

This Brentwood restaurant can cook up to 1,200 pounds of fresh meat on their beautiful bed of 100% hickory wood. Serving up iconic platters of ribs, their compact menu also showcases their skill with birds, which are rubbed with their house-made Texas seasonings and smoked low and slow over the aforementioned hickory. goodycoles.com
