One of the most important things I’ve learned over the years is this: There is nothing better than really good barbecue. And good barbecue is hard to find. There are a few honest efforts here and there, but the Corridor area hasn’t exactly thrived when it comes to the all-important category of pulled pork. Every summer I eagerly look forward to the annual BBQ Roundup held in downtown Cedar Rapids. The promise of wafting scents of smoked meat and sauce are enough to send me into a near frenzy of anticipation. But ruefully, like Christmas, it only comes once a year. Fortunately, BBQ This! is here to fill the void. They have figured out the magical combination of science and nature to craft an excellent pulled pork sandwich. Great pulled pork should:

no. 1 be pulled and shredded — none of this chopped business; no. 2 have a smoky full-bodied hickory flavor; and no. 3 be tender and moist — dry meat can be spotted a mile away. They also offer a full menu of ribs, smoked meats (the beef brisket is to die for) and sides. In order to have an authentic barbecue dinner, there has to be a pile of baked beans and cornbread accompanying the meat. I also highly recommend the apple crisp, a sweet down-home treat that completes the meal. BBQ This! looks like a franchise, but it’s locally owned and operated. I anticipate this restaurant will do great things. In the meantime, I’ll be having another sandwich. — ANDREA
