What's the best BBQ in Washington, DC?

Landed in Baltimore last night and headed into DC. Staying in Glover Park, right next to the Russian Embassy (which made me really pleased, since I was wearing my KGB Still Watching You t-shirt). There's a BBQ joint (Rocklands) nearby. Got my thinking about D.C.'s BBQ offerings. What's your favorite?

Forbes' "5 Best BBQ Joints for an All-American Roadtrip"

Last night, my buddy Daviz Pham sent me via Twitter this Forbes piece on BBQ roadtrips. The writer, Melanie Haiken, lists 5 destinations, and 2 of them are in Texas, which she calls "the grand central station of barbecue." Her #1 is Opie's in Spicewood, while Black's & Smitty's in Lockhart are #2 on her list. Props to Melanie for these picks (2 of the many worthy BBQ destinations in Texas), but she is clearly not from here (San Fran is her home.), as she says of Smitty's: "it's as no-frills as barbecue gets: Meat slapped straight from the GRILL (emphasis mine) onto butcher paper."

Wednesday, September 19, 2012's top 25 BBQ joints

Yesterday, posted its list of the top 25 BBQ joints in the country (in no particular order). Six are from Texas: JMueller, Kreuz, Goode Co., Salt Lick, Snow's, & Franklin ("Franklin's is, in our opinion, the best BBQ joint in America right now.). Thoughts on the inclusion of these 6? Thoughts on the ones they should've included? BTW, there are zero Alabama joints listed. That alone makes the list illegitimate!
