When you see a red, white, and blue “BBQ” flag, you know you’ve arrived. Parked in a tiny patch of grass next to a hair salon, Michael Wyont’s popular trailer has been open for less than a year. On a stormy morning, we were grateful to be handed a sample of tender, well-seasoned brisket as we huddled under the overhang. The rest was just as welcome—the pulled pork was juicy, and the pork ribs crispy edged. Sides improved on the usual fare—chunky potatoes in a mustardy dressing, baked beans kicked up with bits of salty bacon. True, there’s no ambience, but as we sat in our rental car, eating the best barbecue in Whitney, we really didn’t mind.
