2nd Place: Bodacious Pig Barbecue—The husband-and-wife duo behind Bodacious Pig Barbecue in Eagle have a simple word of advice: "Get here early!" All the meats are smoked before the doors open each day, so when it's gone it's gone. It goes quick, too, as this place is truly bodacious. With a catering service and takeout menu, here's our piece of advice: don't leave home without your Handi-Wipes. bodaciouspig.com

3rd Place: BBQ4LIFE—Barbecue and vegan food would seem to be an odd pairing, but you can bet your brisket it works like a dream at BBQ4LIFE. What started as a food truck called B-Hive BBQ & Vegan grew into brick-and-mortar MFT BBQ & Vegan, which then moved to the Bench and was rebranded to BBQ4LIFE. Despite those changes, it's still a place opposites attract—and, boy, are they attractive. bbq4life.net
