The Alabama Barbecue Chase logo



As barbecue grows in popularity, the competition for customers fires some intense creativity.  There's also no substitution for good old-fashion know how.  Classics are classics for a reason, and, when done well, hold their own.  From grandma's family recipe to scientific concoctions from formally trained chefs, there are ton's of mind-blowing, mouth watering bites that you have to try.  Below are 10 of the most delicious, most unusual, and most chase worthy delights in Alabama.  Enjoy and let me know what you think deserves to be on this list.  I love chasing down a good lead!


No two sauces are the same, and a really good sauce makes the meal sing.  These are 10 of my favorites!
