    I have't been to BurnCo in several years but I agree at one time they were hands down the best in the state, the BBQ game has definitely stepped up in the last few years so they have some challengers, and the only BBQ joint, at the time, that you had to stand in line to get in. And at their original location in the strip mall if you got there after noon they were probably already sold out.
    I used to work a lot with a company that only did fire, water and other insurance rebuilds. Whether the walls can stay depends. If it's an all steel structure an engineer would have to determine if the wall steel got hot enough to weaken it. If it's concrete block then the walls can almost certainly stay.

    Finally made it to Clark Crew after being so loyal to Jo Bawbs for so long. JB was out of burnt ends so I stopped and picked up ends and brisket from CC. The brisket was very good, but I was really disappointed in the burnt ends. I paid about $30 for them and it was heavily just chunks of fat. I like fat juicy bbq, but not big chunks. For others that go to CC, is this normal, or did I get a bad batch? For $75 for two meats, okra and Brussels sprouts, I expect premium meat.

    I love CCs burnt ends. I've never had them be overly fatty.

    $75 for two meats? What was the weight of it?

    I keep saying I should give CC another try. But Jo Bawbs is so damn good, I just don't want to take that chance. This story is making feel like I'm making the right call.

    I think they are both about $30 per pound.
    My order included two cornbread pieces and okra.

    I went to CC for the first time last week, and was very underwhelmed. We went for lunch on a workday, so I opted for the burnt end sandwich with baked beans vs. a platter. The burnt ends were very dry with no sauce (was fine with no sauce), and the portion size was extremely small for the price (sandwich was ~$20). I'm a huge fan of Edge Craft, so was expecting to pay a premium, but was overall underwhelmed. I'll go back for dinner when I can try a platter, but with how infrequently I eat BBQ it may be awhile before I make it back.

    Had CC this weekend and it was ok.

    pork ribs where good but not great, okra was really good but you don't much for sides and the mac n cheese was soupy.

    Earls, Backdoor, and Iron Star are all way better IMO

    Earls has gone the cheaper route in the post-pandemic supply chain ordeal in order to keep the prices as low as possible. You can taste the difference. I've been pretty disappointed with them lately. I've found Steve's Rib in Edmond to have kept their quality meats and their prices reflect it as well.

    In my wife and my opinion Earls went cheap or just changed the recipe or something a few years before COVID. It used to be our favorite Saturday no stop but they changed the seasonings on the ribs & brisket and we haven't been back.

    Earls on Western is bomb we love their pork ribs and sides, way better than clark crew which is overrated.

    Last time we got earls was three weeks and the ribs taste the same to me.

    I'm sure if Clark personally made me some ribs and brisket it would be great but they mass produce so much its just ok.

    Oops, just realized you all replied to my comment haha, forgot I posted on here...oh well

    Our issues started when they built the one on Memorial. We had always gone to Edmond but Memorial was different. Then we went back to Edmond and they had changed too.

    So is Earls on Western a chain? If so I did not know that, I recently got into bbq about a year ago and grew up having central texas/hill country bbq in san antonio.

    Yes. Earl's is a local chain. At least central Oklahoma and I don't know if it's beyond that.

    It's a mini-chain with 6 local locations. We grew up eating at the Earl's on Western, and we still go occasionally. Their BBQ isn't anything to write home about, but I love their hot BBQ sauce, 3rd degree buffalo wings, smokestack sandwich and burger. For the price, it's a pretty good option... especially if you go in with the understanding that it's not going to win any BBQ competitions.

    The 6 locations in the OKC metro area is all they have.

    Yeah, it isn't the best I've had but we like it and it is close and decently priced with large sides.

    I think a few people mentioned Texlahoma and their bbq does look really good I'll have to take the wife there as well as bedlam bbq.

    My wife is from OKC and she said Leo's use to be her favorite back in the day but said it isn't as good and I've never had it.

    Best bbq I have ever had is 2M smokehouse in San Antonio and County Line in Austin but I really want to try La BBQ, Franklins and valentines bbq in Austin but the lines are so long.
