Best Local Barbecue

Goodwood Barbecue Company

Readers' Picks

OK, so Boise may not be located in one of the world-renowned bastions of barbecue a la Texas or Memphis, Tenn., but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate all that slow-cooked goodness. In fact, it's what keeps drawing BW readers back to Goodwood--which is continually named the best place in these parts to get your fill of barbecue. Whether it's the custom sauces, kickin' side dishes or the fact that if it can be barbecued, it's on the menu somewhere, Goodwood holds the barbecue flag high--albeit pretty far north. 7849 W. Spectrum St., Boise, 208-658-7173; 1140 N. Eagle Road, Meridian, 208-884-1021,

Second Place: Brown Shuga Soul Food,

Third Place: MickeyRay's BBQ,
