The Sooner State’s best BBQ January 28, 2012

I’m sticking my neck out, but I’m going to say it anyway — Burn Co. BBQ in Tulsa serves the best barbecue I’ve had in Oklahoma.

I’ve visited great places in the Sooner State, including Van’s Pig Stand in Shawnee and The Boundary on 66 near Luther. But I’ve eaten three times at Burn Co. BBQ — which is right on Tulsa’s 11th Street alignment of Route 66 — in the past few weeks, and have sampled something different each time. I’m ready to declare Burn Co. my personal champ of Okie barbecue.

Amazingly, Burn Co. has been open only about a year, and it’s already got quite a following.

This well-produced video by This Land Press a few weeks ago shows the restaurant (and its critical Hasty Bake connection) very well:

The catch is this: Burn Co. BBQ is open only for lunch, and only from Tuesday through Saturday. And if you don’t get there early, it tends to run out of its most popular entrees, especially ribs.

But if you happen to be cruising through Tulsa about lunchtime, I highly recommend that you stop there.

We’ll have to sample some of it next time we’re in Tulsa. Where is it?
