The BBQ Joint

About

The BBQ Joint is a restaurant located in Washington, District of Columbia at 2005 14th Street NW. They are open every day except Tuesday.

The BBQ Joint has been a long time coming. I earned my chops as a fine dining chef so I was surprised to be invited to serve as a judge for the Jack Daniel’s 2004 World Championship Invitational Barbecue Competition (also known as the Jack.) My only prior experience with BBQ had been at so-so restaurants or roadside stands. In fact back then, I thought BBQ was anything you grilled in the backyard. My first day at the Jack was spent becoming a certified judge that involved taking an eight-hour course conducted by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. Safe to say I knew absolutely nothing about BBQ before taking the course. The next day judging the best BBQ competitors in the country was an amazing experience. I was blown away! The competition BBQ gave me goose bumps– it was that good. I had never tasted BBQ like that in my life.
