What to Eat Tuesday... Best BBQ

Listeners share their suggestions

It's back!  Today we revived the old What to Eat Tuesday feature on the Early Edition of WWL First News.

As we restarted the Tuesday tradition, we went back to its original roots and asked where to get the best BBQ around Southeast Louisiana.  

We asked listeners to text 870870 with their suggestions from 5:00am to 6:00am.

One thing is clear... the BBQ scene around here has become far more robust in the past few years.  In less than an hour, we got nearly 100 suggestions of where to find the best places to eat BBQ.  There were some that got multiple mentions - including Blue Oak and Big Mikes that seemed to have the most texts. They were far from alone, though.

Here is a list of the places people suggested (as they sent the text messages to 870870):
