Meat Weekend Winner

Posted by Erni Walker Jun 13, 2014

Well, we did it. We put a lot of people on a bus and we took them to BBQ. 8 restaurants in 2 days did not kill anyone, but it did manage to take down a few good soldiers for the rest of the evening.

Meat Weekend was a flurry of giant bus, brisket, ribs, shouting, pinatas, and FUN. Somewhere in the midst of the meat haze, attendees even managed to vote for their favorites. We're proud to announce the winner of the first-ever Meat Weekend Best of L.A. BBQ Award: Hambone's Bar & Grill!

Finally, a movie about Meat Week! ...Is what you're thinking, right? No? Oh. I'm sorry. We seem to have misunderstood. We thought you wanted to see a documentary about this crazy-ass holiday and our crazy-ass road trip.

Well, you're entitled to your opinion. In fact, we'd love for you to watch the trailer (which is but a scant 4 minutes) and tell us what you think! Want to see more? Want us to shut up and go away? Cool! Tell us with the click of a button and we'll either disappear or show up at your house with BBQ. It's all in your hands...

Who wants to drive hither and thither, all over the expanse of Los Angeles, searching for great BBQ? We do. We have. And now we want to share it with you.

Just board the Meat Weekend BBQ Bus Crawl and we'll do all the driving. You get 8 restaurants in 2 days, a new record even for us! Each of the 8 restaurants on our tour will feature a sampling of at least 2 meats and 1 side (and a few extras here and there). Throughout each day, you'll get a combination of pulled pork, beef brisket, pork ribs, links, tri-tip, and a slew of different sides.

We've tried every. single. thing. on the menus and narrowed it down to the absolute best each spot has to offer, so you won't be wasting any precious stomach room. Each stop lasts 45 minutes to an hour, so between that and the bus ride to the next stop, you'll have some time to digest.

Tickets are limited, so get 'em before they're gone!

• Both days of the BBQ Bus Crawl

• 8 fixed plates (at least 2 meats and 1 side per plate) curated by LA’s own BBQ connoisseurs
