    I've now been to...
    • 46 - Swig and Swine
    • 42 - Gates
    • 40 - Rendevous
    • 36 - Peg Leg Porker
    • 35 - Home Team
    • 28 - Rodney Scott's (woefully low on this list, considering he just won a James Beard award)
    • 29 - Kreuz Market
    • 25 - Buxton Hall
    • 16 - Lexington
    • 7 - Franklin
    • 5 - Lewis
    • 4 - Skyline
    • 1 - Scott's (strange it's 28 for Rodney's, but 1 for the OG location)
    I feel like I"m forgetting one or two from that list

    Only things to add to the previous post from this link:
    • Smitty's Market
    • Sweet Lew's (last month)


    Went to Federalist Pig last month, also. I thought it was on one of these lists. Place is solid. Probably the best service I ever had in DC, as well.

    I never visited that one. The comp in Jan/Feb had their welcome brunch there, and I chose not to go to the comp. I didn't know the family history until I saw this story a few hours ago. I realize things have changed drastically, but I still wouldn't support them...And, now I have a better reason to avoid the ones around here.

    Dumb cracker.

    I actually find this an interesting read. I tried Bessy's (as it's locally known) again last summer, and I wasn't a fan. Lewis, Home Team, Scott's, Swig & Swine...We're lucky to have world class spots throughout the city, so the traditional (if you wanna' call it that) aspect of Bessigner's or Melvin's doesn't really compare to the ones understanding the evolution of food in this city. I find the title of the piece the most intriguing, because I think it's a title most of us in our highest levels BBQ snobbery find accurate, regardless of location throughout the country.

    I used peach wood yesterday and just peach wood. Real light but sweet flavor on chicken thighs. Might be good on fish or seafood but I wouldn't use it as a primary for something big.

    Best BBQ I've ever had. Back in 2011 I lived across from this place. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.zom...wnee%3Famp%3D1

    Every fucking day I'd smell the fire in the morning as I lit up a j before work. Smell them cooking in the afternoon(I got fat because of them). Then on weekends I would sometimes get dinner there. Fuck it was good.

    Well we'll agree to disagree then.
