Our polls have been up for a few days, and it's not too late to get your vote in. We'll periodically check the page where the votes are tallied to make sure of the up-to-date results.

The people have spoken, and the results are in. It looks like Shorty's Smoke 

Some of the comments mentioned spots that weren't on our poll. We don't mind doing the extensive research of taste testing each BBQ joint just to be sure.

Some of the locations mentioned were, Hemphill BBQ, Shep's BBQ in Palestine, Billy's BBQ in Jasper, TX,  Pitt Stop BBQ, Miss Jeans BBQ in Onalaska Tx, and Florida's Kitchen in Livingston TX.

If you've ever eaten at any of those places, be sure to let us know your thoughts, and let your friends know they can still continue to vote.

If you're ever in Tyler, be sure to stop by Stanley's Famous Pit Bar-B-Q on 525 S. Beckham Ave.

The results of our Tyler poll also have a very clear winner, but again ... The polls are still open, and will remain that way. If you're passionate about BBQ, you won't let the wrong restaurant stay in 1st place unless they deserve it.

Oh yeah, and here's another stock photo of some good lookin' meat. You're welcome again.
