my opinion is between those three just go early, go to Smittys for the History (used to be Kreuz until the fued split them and Kreuz moved to new facility) and Blacks which is a different family. The new smitty's in the OLD Kreuz building is.... well soot stained with more than 60 years of bbq.
DO NOT GO LATE!!! they do not use steam holders. noon is perfect!

Do you still know people who would let us get back to the pits and "touch" the meat? Any info would be helpful!
