SAW’s BBQ, Homewood and Birmingham
This hole-in-the-wall barbecue joint makes some of the most delicious ribs and pulled meat in the country. While their pork products have made them popular, their pulled chicken with white sauce is not to be missed. Be prepared to wait in line!
Black Jaxx BBQ, Soldotna
Though this restaurant is only open from April to September (the owners, perhaps wisely, spend the harsher months in Oklahoma), Alaskans know they’ll find amazing Southern-style barbecue here. They offer the typical fare as well as some specialties, including smoked bologna and stellar baked beans.
