Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich with Vinegar Coleslaw

For authentic true ’cue in Charleston, S.C., try the Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich at RightOnQue BBQ. It’s topped with a tangy vinegar coleslaw and served with a side, like creamy macaroni and cheese.

Sweet and Spicy Smoked Chicken Wings

Atlanta restaurant Sweet Auburn Barbecue’s signature dish is smoked chicken wings. Covered in sweet and spicy homemade Wu Tang sauce, these wings are finger-lickin' good.

Baked Bean BBQ Nachos

Murky Waters’ Baked Bean BBQ Nachos are perfect for when you can’t decide between Mexican and barbecue.

BBQ Fried Chicken & Waffle Cone

Make your fried chicken and waffles hand-held with Shannon’s BBQ Fried Chicken & Waffle Cone. The cone is topped with Alabama white BBQ sauce and a cool red cabbage-and-poppy seed slaw.

Coconut Lemongrass Pork Spareribs

Sweet Auburn in Atlanta puts a twist on classic ribs. These pork spareribs are smothered in a coconut lemongrass sauce and served with charred green beans.

The Murky 

Murky Waters BBQ in Gulfport, Miss., has a hefty signature sandwich. The Murky is a double-decker pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwich drizzled with smoky barbecue sauce.

Smoked Pork Belly with Tomato-Peach BBQ Sauce

Shannon made good use of fresh Georgia peaches in Atlanta. His Smoked Pork Belly is glistening with a sweet tomato-peach BBQ sauce on a bed of spicy, juicy grilled peaches.

Dinosaur Beef Rib

A customer favorite at Sweet Auburn Barbecue in Atlanta is the monstrous, fall-off-the-bone Dinosaur Beef Rib that’ll take you back to Jurassic times.

Sweet and Sticky Spareribs 

Charleston's RightOnQue BBQ’s Smoked Sweet and Sticky Spareribs are worth getting messy for. Mop up any leftover sauce with their sweet potato fries.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Moon Pies

Shannon’s Bacon Chocolate Chip Moon Pies are out of this world. The smoky bacon, toasted marshmallow filling and graham cracker sprinkles will leave you feeling like you’re at a campfire (but with air conditioning and no mosquitos — so better).

Pulled Brisket Sandwich

Foodies travel to Mobile, Ala., to try Meat Boss’ one-of-a-kind pulled brisket sandwich. Load this lean and satisfying ’bama brisket with spicy or sweet sauce.

Twice-Smoked Loaded Potato

In Charleston, S.C., Shannon created the mother lode of loaded potatoes. This Twice-Smoked Loaded Potato has a crunchy outer layer, a cheesy, smoky inside and a fresh dollop of sour cream for the perfect balanced bite.
