Based on a recommendation from a friend, a group of us from Huntsville were in the area so we gave New Market BBQ a try. There are plenty of really excellent BBQ places in Alabama, but this little gem in New Market, AL (about 20 miles from downtown Huntsville) is well worth the drive. I was truly surprised to find such excellent BBQ in a small town, but they clearly pour their heart into their food, and the owners are both genuine and friendly...boy can they cook! A few standouts were the smoked Mac & Cheese, pulled pork, and beef brisket, and while you may be too full to eat it there, they had a chocolate cake which was fantastic...just take that sucker home! We enjoyed their food so much we ordered a second plate of just pork after lunch to take home; we scarfed it down over the next two days with no sauce because the delicious smoky flavor reminded me of a Hawaiian favorite - Kalua Pig, just like what you get at a Hawaiian luau. This part of Alabama, near the Tennessee border, is very pretty, so take the time if you are anywhere near south-central Tennessee or Huntsville, AL to experience some of the best BBQ I have ever tasted.
