@mismi,
I cannot trust a barbeque joint with a website.

@squinney,
First off, anyone who calls it "BBQ" doesn't know what it is. Wink

@squinney,
Also, not a big fan of pulled pork, so I wouldn't pick Carolina, north or south. And the Texas stuff I've had wasn't even edible, they often use mesquite which imparts a horrible bitterness to long smoked meats. So from your list, I'd pick KC.

I make a mean batch of ribs myself.

Some may laugh but California has a barbecue style all its own. It's not barbecue but it's not grilling either. Santa Maria style barbecue of tritip (beef), served with hot salsa and pinquito beans, salad, toasted bread, and maybe mac&cheese. It's an experience.

Not a big fan of the mesquite approach either.

My favorite is still the pork ribs from a little hole-in-the-wall on East 75th St. in Chicago. Can't remember the name of the joint but oooweee! Everything was working, the meat, the sauce, the seasoning, the sides. I had many yummy pork and beef rib dinners in Chi but it's been almost twenty years and I can still taste those ribs from 75th St.

My vote?
ChiTown, baby.

I like all types of barbecue myself. It's all good.

Walter, note that Rudy's is billing themselves as "Texas bar-b-q."

@Walter Hinteler,
"Real Texas Bar B Q" in Albuquerque? I hope their cooking is better than their Geography.

None of that backyard ketchup on your mean crap, this is what it tastes like to do meat right.
