Default BBQ Joints Lincoln, Neb.

Hey bros (and sis's)
I'm up in Lincoln, Nebraska this week for a convention. Question - are there any decent joints up near University of Nebraska?

Just gotta have real food if possible - rubber chicken in a convention hall just don't cut it.

Parkers Smokehouse

Southwest Pit BBQ

Phat Jacks

Parkers is good. Haven't been to Phat Jacks or Southwest Pit BBQ. There is also Dickie's BBQ Pit, which is a chain. It's okay.

I've heard Phat Jacks is pretty good but never been there myself.

In Lincoln Phat Jacks is the best of all. Matt is a multi-champ comp cook and still cooks the store meat with wood. You will not be disappointed. The store is located about a mile north of the UNL stadium off of 10th & Cornhusker.

And, if you're up to it, you could drive to Gretna and go to We'll Smoke You BBQ. Scott is a Brethren Member and all around nice guy.

As said before, Phat Jacks is the best BBQ in Lincoln, and Matt is also a Brethren Member. Not to mention a gearhead. Get him talking about his Camaro. I recommend the Biggerstaff Sandwich. Don't plan any strenuous activity afterwards.

If you really care about this place, you'll show some respect for it.

Your beard is so stupid, it took two hours to watch 60 Minutes.

I'm late to the party as I have been out of town, but yes to Phat Jacks. It's the best and closest to campus. Matt's a great guy. Parker's was good but changed recently and I don't think it's as good anymore.
