This is the No. 1 ‘Must-Try BBQ Spot’ in Pennsylvania
Some people say that summer is winding down, which makes me, well, not happy. But, it’s still barbeque season, and there are plenty of great BBQ spots in Pennsylvania. Now, we know the No. 1 “must-try BBQ spot” in the state, thanks to a new study. How fun would it be to put together this study, by the way, and just sample a lot of BBQ?
Phillybite.com has put together a list of its “10 best must-try BBQ spots in Pennsylvania.” “Whether you spell it BBQ, Barbeque, or Barbecue, Pennsylvania BBQ joints across the state are putting out award-winning ribs, mouth-watering Bar-B-Q chicken, and so much more,” they state in the article.
Looking through this list makes me hungry. I don’t even eat meat, but seeing all the mac and cheese sides with these BBQ offerings is just heavenly. Before we get to No. 1 on this list, let’s look at the two closest BBQ spots to Philadelphia that made the top cut. Coming in at No. 4 is Hood’s BBQ in Kennett Square. That’s about one hour outside of Philly. “Easygoing joint offers slow-smoked meats, sandwiches, homemade desserts, and weekend breakfasts,” Phillybite.com sates. They also mention that the place has been family owned and operated for a whopping 30 years. Another nearby spot on this list is Holy Que Smokehouse in Lahaska at No. 3, which is also about an hour outside of Philly. They call it an “authentic wood-fired Texas BBQ restaurant.”
So, what’s the No. 1 “must-try BBQ spot” in the state? Red Rock BBQ and Ice Cream in Susquehanna. That’s quite a trek, but hey, you had me at ice cream. They call it a “Southern Style BBQ joint” that offers “great BBQ, excellent service, and good times.” It’s been running since 2016, so it’s more of a newbie.
