I have not been to all of these — yet — and note that not all of them are really barbecue places. (Ted Peters’ sells no barbecue at all, and pit beef (best served rare) is not barbecue.) Some of the omissions — Archibald’s, City Market, Wilber’s — are shocking. It will get down to apples and oranges choices, such as between Saw’s and Franklin’s, but it’ll be fun.
