Road trip season is upon us and we’re feeling hungry, real hungry! Sure, stocking up on your favorite batch of road trip snacks (i.e. Country Archer Teriyaki Beef Jerky) is essential, there’s just something deeply satisfying about good ole fashioned barbecue. The tricky part is, happening upon a legendary barbecue joint can be a crap shoot. Since The Golden State is where we call home and a place we know all too well, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to map out the perfect pit stops for the carnivore on the go. So, saddle up partner, it’s time to go for a ride.
