Question of the week: Best BBQ meat?

Look, there under the sweet potato fries. It's some of the most moist and flavorful smoked turkey I've tried in a while. Thank you, Bite Me BBQ.

It’s been days since I ate it, but I’m STILL fantasizing about the succulent, juicy, perfectly smoked turkey breast I ate at Bite Me BBQ, the restaurant that I’ve reviewed for this week’s paper.

It’s the kind of turkey I dream about every Thanksgiving but rarely get, partially because I have no relatives with access to smokers. Perhaps I’ll have to become that relative.

Barbecue is a very personal thing, and it seems like there are as many favorite barbecue restaurants as there are barbecue fans.

My question this week: Which barbecue meat is your favorite? Ribs? Hotlinks? Pulled pork? Turkey? Chicken? Brisket? And more important, which local barbecue restaurant serves the best version of your favorite meat?

Question of the week: Wichita’s best barbecue place?

Wichita just gained Bite Me BBQ at 132 N. St. Francis and just lost Bubba’s Nekkid BBQ at 2428 West 13th Street N.

The barbecue places seem to come and go on a fairly frequent basis. Which one is your favorite? Which one would you miss most if it evaporated like Bubba?

I liked Bubba, but I also have enjoyed many a meal at Pig In! Pig Out! at 1003 East 13th Street N. and When Pig’s Fly at 7011 W. Central.

Bite Me BBQ moves downtown

This place is big. And by big, I mean huge.

Bite Me BBQ just finished its long-planned move from Goddard to downtown Wichita and re-opened on Monday in a ginormous space at 132 N. St. Francis.

Owner Coleman Lockett announced his plan to relocate last year. He closed his restaurant at 151st Street West and Kellogg in March and has been busy since then relocating. I stopped in the new space on Wednesday and was surprised by how cavernous it was. I was struck by the big bar, the number of tables, the shiny cement floor and the smell of new paint mixed with smoked meat.

Bite Me’s menu includes traditional barbecue favorites plus a few unexpected items (deep fried lobster! mountain oysters!).

While it waits for its liquor license, the restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Once the license is obtained, which Lockett predicts will take a couple of weeks, he’ll extend the hours to 11 a.m. to midnight Mondays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

For more information, call 316-729-2904.

Bite Me will bring more barbecue downtown

Wichita barbecue fans will have another downtown option this fall.

Bite Me BBQ owners Coleman and Becky Lockett plant to move their restaurant from its current space at 151st St. west and Kellogg in Goddard to 130 N. St. Francis in downtown Wichita.

The move should be done by late November.
