Looking for a taste of the South in Alaska? Big Daddy's in Fairbanks is your answer for the best BBQ in the state (and this far north), featuring heaping plates of lip-smacking, Arkansas-style classics. Chef Harold Groetsema, or "Big Daddy," heads up this spacious, country-themed restaurant, cooking and smoking everything from ribs and brisket to chicken and pork, plus some fried okra and onion rings you shouldn't omit.
