Bryan’s BBQ Ribs

It’s no secret Bryan’s Black Mountain BBQ in Cave Creek, Arizona churns out lip-smacking, toe-tapping, slow-smoked ‘cue.

The walls of the urban cowboy joint are plastered with press articles from every news outlet in the Valley, including a few mentions from me.

When Grub Street was compiling their Big-City Barbecue: 101 Places to Satisfy Your Urban ‘Cue Craving, they kindly asked me to name the best BBQ dish in Phoenix.

Although we have more than one rockin’ BBQ joint in the Valley, I had to pick just one.

Just one?

So, if you’re not lucky enough to live in the desert oasis of the Phoenix Valley, and eat at Joe’s or Bryan’s or Stacy’s on a regular basis, and I have to point you to one single BBQ dish?

Oh, alright. If you insist, then fine: don’t miss the pork spare ribs from Bryan’s BBQ, which I said were “…the perfect amalgamation of smoke, spice, heat, and chew” … and I meant it.

Read the full Grub Street report on all 101 joints from coast to coast and then saddle up and hit the road.

It’s time for some serious ‘cue, and it’s always time for a road trip.

      Marti… thanks for commenting. Bryan’s BBQ is not just a place for great ribs…. their beef brisket is fantastic. Love their pulled pork and chicken, too. And their sides are creative. They even have a “pulled” spaghetti squash sandwich that’s delicious topped with a fried egg.
