Ken's Place LOW BBQ is hands down the best. I live near Russell St. BBQ and it'll do, but if you want the best of the best you gotta go to Ken's. They do beef brisket, pork ribs, lamb ribs, pulled pork, salmon, and other specials plus traditional sides (their beans make me swoon). The focus is on impeccably smoked meat, which they don't drown in sauce. In fact, all the meat is served without sauce and you add however much you want. The only drawback is that LOW BBQ happens only once a week, on Tuesdays from 5pm until they run out. Ken's is at 1852 SE Hawthorne.
