Tennessee's Real BBQ
This may come as a surprise, but great barbecue can be found in Braintree. And Peabody and Framingham, too. Hit the ‘burbs to hit the ‘cue at a mini chain that’s won awards all over the country. The key might be in the dry rubs, or the use of three sweet smoking woods (hickory, apple, and cherry). Whatever the secret to their success, the results speak for themselves: Memphis, Texas, or baby back ribs; pulled pork sandwiches; sliced brisket; and smoked BBQ sausages.
