Got a hankering for some authentic Southern style barbecue but no time for a restaurant meal? Then look for the blue camper van with porky pig painted on the side and a smoking grill tagging along behind. Grandmaster Smoke will happily, chattily serve you up some pulled pork, ribs and hot links on a $10 combo plate. Or, if you prefer some bread around your meat, try the brisket sandwich.

Proprietor Daniel “Pepper” Morgan has an impressive résumé. More importantly, he learned to cook from his grandmother, who taught him the recipe for her barbecue sauce (tangy, smoky and practically drinkable) and passed on to him the soul of soul food. All of the barbecue at Pepper’s is spectacular. After hours of “mopping and basting” with sauce in the smoker—which burns hickory, applewood and mesquite—turkey legs, chopped brisket, chicken, rubbed ribs and sausage develop a glossy, sweet coating. Once a week, the menu is augmented by “Soul Food Saturday” specials, including oxtails and neck bones smothered in gravy and chitterlings. On the side, good luck choosing between garlicky mac ’n’ cheese, molten-hot fried okra, collard greens with smoked turkey, and sweet potato corn bread. Closed Sunday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Everyone loves good, old-fashioned barbecue, and you’ll find heaps of it at the County Line. It has everything you could want: sweet corn on the cob, coleslaw, brown-sugar beans, you name it. Oh, and meat, meat, meat. The baby back ribs are especially good, as is the homemade hickory barbecue sauce. Wash it down with a pint and phenomenal city views, and you’ll be feeling right at home on the range. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The focus at Nexus is on balanced, drinkable beers that don’t smash customers in the mouth by a hop assault. That being said, Nexus beat out stalwart area breweries at the 2011 NM IPA Challenge. There are nine styles featured on tap, including standouts IPA, ESB, cream and Belgian white. The brewery is attracting quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties of Southern-fried po’boys and the delicious marriage of chicken and waffles. It’s just the place to take your corn-bread-and-Frito-pie-craving friends while still getting your craft beer fix. And there’s live music, too. Nexus has bands booked several nights a week.

The pulled pork at Rudy’s makes us drool like dogs under the dinner table. Heaped up between two slices of pillowy white bread and kissed with sauce, the beef and pork ribs are absolute hog heaven. Rudy’s dining room takes “spartan” to a new level, but as the weather improves, so does our opinion of sitting out on their covered patio. Now serving breakfast tacos with your choice of Rudy’s justifiably famous meats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Thick slices of beef, tender barbecued chicken and unbeatable cornmeal-dusted catfish are just a few of the items that make this a premier restaurant to blow your diet sky-high. But what really pushes this place over the edge are the fantastic side dishes: like addictive fried okra; smoky, salty greens; and tender black-eyed peas, which are prepared with the same reverence and care as the main attractions. We forbid you from leaving without first ordering a slice of superb sweet potato pie or a piping-hot bowl of cherry cobbler à la mode. Aw, what the hell—just get both and die happy. If you’re in a hurry, you can order to-go items from a side pickup area. Closed Mondays. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

Yes, Golden Pride is technically a fried chicken joint, but it also serves fantastic barbecue and the best damn portable burritos in town. Drive through and order a flock of wings, a rack of ribs and a passel of No. 9 breakfast burritos (with bacon!). It’s all good with beer, by the way. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Back in business after a fire shuttered this location for a few years!

While The Cube’s presentation is upscale, the portions you’ll get are of standard barbecue proportions, unlikely to send you home hungry. Ribs, chicken, brisket, links and pulled pork are hickory-wood-smoked and prepared with a spice rub (“dry”) or drenched in tangy, smoky, sweet, acidic sauce (“wet”). Both versions are excellent. Hot dog lovers will have plenty to chew on with Chicago dogs, bacon-wrapped Guadalajara dogs and 505 dogs (bacon, avocado and green chile). And with mapley candied yams, mac and cheese and skin-on fries, the sides at The Cube are hardly side notes. To wash down your meal, there’s a wine and beer list and a hefty menu of house-made mousses, pies and muffins for dessert. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You’ll probably have to battle full parking lots and at least a moderate wait, but these delays, annoying as they may be, are one of the best “reviews” a restaurant could hope for. Inside, the dim lighting and rustic décor easily fade away when an enormous pile of tender, saucy meat appears before you. The almost heat-free sauce is tangy and sweet but mellow enough to go down nice and easy without a pucker. Friends of the sausage will love the hot links; well-spiced and smoky dogs with a delightful snap. A huge bar takes care of all your beer and cocktail needs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque

Creatively Southern accurately describes Amy Black's superb menu. The ever-changing line-up features such triumphs as wild-caught shrimp over creamy goat cheese grits (stone ground in SC), a variety of po’ boys, and the Breaking Bad inspired Los Pollos Hermanos fried chicken.
