Best Ribs in Birmingham

The Birmingham News has anointed Big Daddy's Bar-B-Q in Warrior with the gold medal for the "Best Ribs in Birmingham." Not sure I'd consider Warrior part of Birmingham, but it sounds like it might be worth a trip up I-65. According to last Friday's City Scene, Paul Woodard learned the art of barbecue growing up in Chicago but worked in the mortgage business before opening Big Daddy's two years ago. Judges say the ribs are "very tender and juicy."

(For those of you who may not realize they have some very good BBQ in the Midwest -- does anyone besides us remember the M*A*S*H episode where they managed to get ribs sent to Korea from Adam's Rib in Chicago?)

The silver medal went to Dreamland Bar-B-Que, bronze to Jim 'N Nick's.

My friend and I spend a good bit of time searching for "Perfect BBQ". We took a trip to Warrior to sample some of Big Daddy's BBQ. I came away with the conclusion that the "Judges" don't know what good BBQ tastes like. We both ordered a BBQ sandwich with some ribs on the side.
The BBQ sandwich was very greasy. Good BBQ should be moist not greasy. The ribs were also a disappointment.
If you want good BBQ and ribs go to Tin Top in Calera.

Ridiculous review above. Big Daddy's was voted the best for a reason. Tin Top is crap.
