Goody Coles in Brentwood, NH, on 125, just south of 101. The smoked turkey is tender and still moist, the brisket has just enough fat, most of the sides are awesome. Not a fan of the macncheese, but do try the cucumber salad, a refreshing break from the richness of the meats. The ribs are perfectly tender, not mushy. Wide range of sauces to try, and they have a liquor license. What's not to love?

East Side Bar & Grill has incredible ribs! And they are winners, two years in a row, of the "Smoke this rib fest" in East Cambridge.
Definitely Bt's smokehouse

Gotta go with BT's in Sturbridge. After recently discovering it, I think it might be the best BBQ I've ever eaten. And I mean anywhere.

For sure you just ain't heard of Steamer-Tenders in Palmer, Ma. My husband and I have traveled to many rib joints and although they don't claim this dish as their specialty...they should! Tender, moist, flavorful, fall of the bone goooooood!!!
Commonwealth BBQ in Wrentham!
Blue Ribbon BBQ in Newton, MA.
