I am from Sacto. I am putting this post here because I was not sure where else to put it. I am just getting into BBQ and want to try smoking. I want to find a place here in my area that has some good food. I want to eat something good so I know what I am shooting for. Hope all are well.

You're out of luck...

There is average to below average BBQ in Sacramento. If you want a high bar to shoot for make the drive down to Oakland to Phat Matt's...

Shoot me an email and we can discuss more if you'd like...

I have heard enough decent feedback regarding Lucille's (http://www.lucillesbbq.com/locations) to warrant a visit, perhaps you can check it out.

I had some pretty good sliced brisket at this place in Sacramento; http://www.jrtexasbbq.com/ JR has been around a long time, he must be doing something right. I would definitely eat there again. He is also a nice guy and likes to talk barbecue. Check it out and see what you think.

I haven't been to his restaurant, but Ed is a competiton cook turned restaurateur. I'd guess his food would be better than most restaurants.

I think that is Ed Anhern (Anhorn) place, he promotes a few contests in Placer county...i.e. Ribstock.
