I've been to a lot of great BBQ joints over the years... some of the best places in Texas, Dreamland, Pimanyoli's, Voodoo, Jay's, etc. but the best I ever had was a really unlikely place.
They were running a trial test or something about a year ago, not sure how many weeks or months they were doing it, but it was on a special separate menu. If you ordered the BBQ they had you fill out a survey card after. I gave it a shot b/c it looked good in the pictures.
It was absolutely phenomenal. It was a sampler of sorts, with brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and a couple of sides. It was cooked to perfection and the spices/sauce they used were like something a renowned BBQ expert would've put together. Pretty good for a New Orleans seafood/steak type of place. Copeland's always has good food but I never thought of it as a place for BBQ.
Sadly, though, I've been back a couple of times since and no BBQ on the menu.
