It was no easy undertaking narrowing our list of the best barbecue restaurants in America down to 20. You could easily find 20 celebrated barbecue joints in Texas or the Carolinas alone. But alas, we had to stop at some point and prevent ourselves from writing an entire barbecue book (for now). Here are 80 more fantastic barbecue restaurants to round out our Top 100. All are worthy of a dining detour, and no doubt many 'cue enthusiasts — usually an opinionated bunch — could make a valid argument for any of these fine establishments.
