Tootsie, a custom-built, 4,700-pound, oak-powered smoker, is the star of Top Chef finalist Tiffani Faison’s BBQ joint near Fenway Park. Sustainable, hormone-free meat—black Angus beef, Berkshire pork, all-natural chicken and turkey—comes Texas-style on metal trays lined with butcher paper. Find your place at one of the communal tables, made from old doors and reclaimed bowling lanes, and get your fatty brisket, pork belly, and turkey legs with a mason jar of moonshine.

Sweet Cheeks is one of few BBQ spots in Boston. It is definitely not a place to take a vegetarian as the menu is mostly all meat. They have a nice outdoor beer garden with a decent selection of brews as well as a larger interior filled with tables and a bar. The decor and atmosphere is great! Tin cups, trays and mason jars make dining a little quirky and fun.

Mighty fine Southern BBQ in a space that somehow captures the feel of a giant family picnic. You might not realize you're actually indoors given the smell of smoked meats, the weathered picnic tables, and 4th of July atmosphere. Generous helpings of chicken, brisket, or pork (of the pulled, ribs, or belly variety) are so large that they are served on trays rather than plates. Side dishes (included with the trays) are large enough to be labeled "scoops" instead. The salt and papper potatoes are a much tastier alternative to fries, and the bucket o' biscuits with honey butter is absurdly, wonderfully gluttonous. For those who can't take on such heaping portions, all meats can also be served on smaller, cheaper sandwiches served on a bulky role or, better yet, Texas toast. For those at the opposite end of the spectrum, the $450 Big Rig contains 2 lbs each of four different meats, a full rack of ribs, a whole chicken, and a quart of each of their sides. Bring hungry, hungry friends.
