Oklahoma Joe's Barbecue

Multiple Locations |

The original location of Oklahoma Joe's usually keeps a hungry line curling through its host convenience store and gas station, but no one much cares because owners Joy and Jeff Stehney focus on the inside of their smoker. They cook the pulled pork slowly over a pile of white oak, the way they learned to do as competition-barbecue masters. What emerges drives ordinary men to get tattoos of pigs on their arms. The Carolina-style sandwich, a mountain of pulled pork covered in slaw and bubba's sauce, is just as it would be well to our east. Don't tell Carolinians, but Oklahoma Joe's does it better.
