Yesterday, we received an impassioned letter to the Barbecue Editor concerning The 50 Best BBQ Joints list. Here it is in full:

I’ve just reviewed your Top 50 Best Barbecue Joints issue and it’s a total joke! How can you include _______ but not __________? And what about ________, _________. or ________? Then you include ________ and say it has the best ________ in the whole state? I wouldn’t feed their _________ to my ________! And their sides? Have you ever eaten __________ before?
Where did you all learn about barbecue, anyway? New York City?

Thank you for your sense of humor Mr. Simpson.
