Our February issue hits the newsstands tomorrow but the web team is busy getting the cover story, “The Best Barbecue in Dallas”, uploaded to our website. Hopefully later today. The feature is written by Daniel Vaughn, the self-described BBQ Snob, and a fanatic who charts his barbecue discoveries on his Full Custom Gospel BBQ. So far he has reviewed 249 joints and has 17 more in the works.  He also tells me: “As of last evening, I have officially visited every joint in DFW that I am aware of, excluding multiple chain locations. I need a salad.”

We asked Mr. BBQ Snob to narrow his favorites down to 16. The proposal was tortuous for him. Today, we will reveal his top spot and announce the winner of our Guess the Top Spot contest.  Daniel will be joining us here and we look forward to many SideDish discussions on barbecue. Salads are for sissies.
