EDIT: Here's a look at a few local BBQ joints near me: Phil's Dream Pit and Pratt's BBQ!
Those all sound lip-smackin' good to me, even the Kansas City style (although I know you like things HOT). Missouri, eh? Willie Scott must like it that way.

I've been to both Carolinas as a kid but can't recall having any BBQ while there. Would love to visit the central, southern states someday for some sampling of burgers & steaks!

I'm hungry now.
Yes, sir. My mother & her boyfriend host a "pig roast" (as we call it) every year at our summer cottage in the Laurentian mountains. Tonnes of food and loads of laughs. They've been doing it for 15 years now and more & more people come each time. Last year we had over 100 guests. Fortunately, we have 2 acres of land so there was just enough room to park all the cars! Unfortunately, I'll be missing this summer's but here's a taste from 2006. (My brother likes to shoot off fireworks at night so I included a photo of his little arsenal, just for fun.)

Speaking of swine: Who put "ham" in the name, "hamburger"?
