Battle BBQ: Texas v. California
After reading the title, I'm sure Texans are already scoffing at the thought that Cali might challenge Texas on the BBQ front. But I'm also sure some Golden Staters might point out that California is big and has no shortage of BBQ joints. They might point out that CA is home to loads of competition BBQ teams and mobile caterers. They might point out that some BBQ joints, like Phil's in San Diego, regularly have lines that stretch out their doors. At any rate, as I am with all rounds of Battle BBQ, I'm just trying to spark a little fighting, I mean, friendly debate. So, let's hear it: Does California deserve even to be mentioned in the same discussion as Texas, when it comes to BBQ? California knows how to party, but do they know how to serve up legit BBQ?
