Creative new chefs are heating up America’s barbecue scene. Dry rub or marinade? North Carolina vinegar or Kansas City sweet sauce?

Bub City, Chicago

6 of 14

Chicago’s newest BBQ joint brings together chef Doug Psaltis (whose résumé includes stints at Essex House, Country, and the French Laundry) and mixologist Paul McGee. It’s a winning combination of American whiskey-based cocktails, Carolina pulled pork, St. Louis–style ribs, and fried chicken with Alabama white sauce. The décor is just the right side of kitschy—a beer can American flag is the bar’s centerpiece, and a cowboy mannequin presides over the ladies’ room—and most nights, there’s live music (country, naturally).
