Looking for BBQ joints on roadtrip 5/13 - 6/5

Hello everybody,

As most of you know, I live in the Netherlands.
A co-worker of mine is traveling to the US from may 13th to june 5th. He and his girlfriend travel from Phoenix to Vegas trough some canyons and parks and from Vegas they go to San Fransico and then LA. From LA they fly back. They rent a car and have no specific artinuary.

I'm looking for anything BBQ joints related for them during their trip, like coupons, specials or just great review's. Also if you know of anything special in that time, please mention it, if not in this thread, then via PM.

thx for all your help,
Frank

Frank you may want to PM Darin at D-Dogs as he is in Arizona and I'll bet he knows all the BBQ spots from the Rockies to the Coast. http://tinyurl.com/yj4k7ek

I've never been, but "Memphis Championship BBQ" in Vegas is supposed to be good, for a "chainish" place.

San Francisco has "Memphis Minnie's" on Haight Street

Alameda is across the bay from San Francisco and has the awesome "Great American BBQ" on High Street

Thx guys, I'll let him know this, and let him find these places online. Please keep in mind, I live accros the big pond in the east and need as much info as possible in order to find these places with a GPS-roadfinder.
Also, If you know of a place that has no internet-addres but is absolutly worth vissiting, can you give a full adress?

Re: Looking for BBQ joints on roadtrip 5/13 - 6/5

This one is on along US 101, not far off Hwy 1.
Jocko's Steakhouse
125 N Thompson Ave
Nipomo, CA 93444
(805) 929-3565

This next one is JUST out of the way, but not by much.

Hitching Post
http://www.hitchingpost1.com/DirectionsAndContacts.html
3325 Point Sal Road
Casmalia, CA. 93429
(805) 937-6151

Somewhere along the way they have to pick up a tri tip sandwich.
