Smoke Queen BBQ

Los Angeles

Featured In

Winnie Yee-Lakhani is another innovator in the LA barbecue scene, a self-taught (and YouTube-taught) pitmaster infusing her Malaysian-Chinese heritage and her Southern California sensibility into the Texas traditions. That means she’s smoking briskets, of course, but she also does smoked pork belly rubbed with char siu spices, beef ribs mopped with her proprietary gochujang BBQ sauce, and a crunchy-skinned siu yuk. Her meat is plenty flavorful on its own, but the four varieties of sauce she makes—House Blend, Gochujang, Sichuan, and Char Siu—are worth a sample (or a bottle purchase) anyway.
How to enjoy: walk up, or order ahead via the website.
