Best of 2009: Best Turkey

Russell is quick to tell me that "Bird ain't BBQ," but I beg to differ. Sometimes, a moist piece of turkey just outta the smoker can hang with anything else on a menu. The problem is that many places (perhaps most) don't deliver on the moistness - and dry turkey can't hang with anything. Some places, however, get it right. Here are the 3 that did it best in 2009 (rounded to nearest hundredth):

Mills County BBQ Company (Goldthwaite): 9.86

Louie Mueller Barbecue (Taylor): 9.52

Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse (Elgin): 9.1

turkey doesn't qualify as real barbeque, but Louie M is still up there in my book!

This opinion must run in the family! Okay, to counter, if it's not BBQ, then why does most every Texas BBQ joint serve it?
