Dyal,

I actually have not eaten any commercial BBQ out this way, but a bartender I met (originally from St. Louis, MO) highly recommended a place called "Sticky Fingers). I can't remember where it is....Marysville..something or other....way out in the sticks if I recall.

Dyal,


Lakewood is about and hour south of Seattle down I-5 and honestly not the best town in the state by far. Will you have a rental car or anything that can get you north?

Peco'sPit BBQ in south Seattle is really good but have to get here early as the line go around the block and on the east-side 3 Pigs is decent and I am trying to remember the name of the BBQ joint in Issaqua that is really good too.

Also if you can make it to Seattle you will want to visit Salumi in Pioneer Square, it is Mario Batali's dads shop that is amazing and again have to get there very early as the line gets very long. Send me a PM or and email and I can give you more details on places to check out. email is ba dot adams at comcast dot net.

ya most of that is just tourists bs,

Ivar's seafood on the water front, best dam fried cod in the world.

Dicks drive in , best greasy fries and burgers. the tater sauce is great!

and IMO the best BBQ in the Seattle area is Mac's smokehouse on first ave south , near where the kingdome use to stand.


dam, I miss Seattle .... lol

Oh and BTW , Lakewood area in Pierce county is a bad area, I'd be very careful where you go there.

Wow, thanx for all the great advice!

smokin'gal, We have a restaurant called "Sticky Fingers" around here. They serve some pretty good barbecue. You can find their bottled sauces in some grocery stores. When I looked at the link you gave me, that's a whole new restaurant altogether. Interesting that they have the same name....

Seattle-Q, yeah that sux that I'll be in Lakewood and not Seattle. I won't have a rental car, but I should have per diem for taxi service. I'll try to get to Seattle if I have time to check some of those places out. Do you guys have a train or anything like that up that way that would be a little more cost-efficient for transportation?

Wow, thanks a lot Smokeybeaver! That's a lot of stuff to check out, but I'll do my best to get to a few! :wink: Thank you so much for all that information!!!

Macgyver, thanks for the info! I'll make sure to pack some heat. :lol:

Thanks a lot, bajamike, but unfortunately my class in WA got cancelled... :cry:
http://www.barbecuebible.com/board/view ... hp?t=20995

The class is now being held in Richmond, KY in March. I hope to make it to Seattle one day though....I hear it's gorgeous. I'll be going through a series of these courses, so maybe I can find one being held up your way after I've completed the one in KY.
