We have made a list of 6 BBQ joints you have to try in Phoenix according to Yelp reviews and ratings. How about exploring those?

Note: As BBQ lovers, we've been breaking down some of the best burger joints in the United States with a little help from Yelp and some solid references. While we haven't visited them all, our purpose was to spread some love and awareness for these great local (for the most part) restaurants - many of them being small businesses! Plus, it's been fun reading your comments in the discussion about how dead wrong we are (to put it VERY lightly). Please forgive us in advance. :D
