Norristown, PA 19403

Chef Keith Taylor, founder of Zachary's BBQ learned the secrets of good barbecue at the elbow of his Gram, who schooled him in the tradition of cast iron skillets, rich sauces and a whole lotta love. But it's not just the ribs and chicken. How does Sweet Potato Cheesecake or Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie sound?

When chef Chad Rosenthal fires up his smoker, all of Ambler breathes in the scent of hickory and salivates a little.

But the star of the show is the menu, including mouthwatering ribs and beef brisket.

UNCLE GREG'S SMOKIN' BBQ

650 N Cannon Ave
Lansdale, PA 19446

Uncle Greg's popular food truck occupies the same spot in Lansdale every Wednesday through Sunday. In addition to the fall-off-the-bone cuts, Uncle Greg makes some kickin' sides, including baked beans that are thick and spicy and loaded with chunks of pork butt.

JESSE'S BARBECUE & LOCAL MARKET

Souderton, PA 18964

True barbecue lovers want a taste of everything. That's why Jesse's offers the sampler meal: three ribs, a serving of sliced brisket, a chicken drumstick, and a load of pulled pork. Two sides are also included; we recommend the collard greens and the mac & cheese.

LEPORE-BA-Q

1409 Easton Rd
Abington, PA 19001

The go-to spot for ribs in Abington is hands-down Lepore-Ba-Q. Choose your favorite style - baby back or St. Louis - and you can't go wrong. The perfect side: dirty rice with crispy brisket ends.

BBQ BBQ

Horsham, PA 19044

BBQ BBQ takes pulled pork to the next level by nesting it in a Panini. The sandwich - at only $9 - overflows. Plenty of sauce options are available, including an apple cider version that gets the savory-sweet balance exactly right.

BRIDGEPORT RIB HOUSE

1049 Ford St
Bridgeport, PA 19405

Some would call Bridgeport Rib House a dive. We just call it a great place to get ribs by the piece. The sides here often take center stage, especially in the baked beans and sausage stuffing.

BARBACOA

64 Rittenhouse Pl
Ardmore, PA 19003

Barbacoa, the Spanish word for barbecue, is also Ardmore's favorite spot for a Peruvian-style slant on the BBQ tradition, featuring amazing marinades. As for unique sides, we have just two words: cornbread pudding.
