The St. Louis barbecue boom continues to expand its reach. In 2015, the standout debut was Beast Craft BBQ Co. in Belleville. In 2016, the clear highlight among the new joints was Big Baby Q and Smokehouse in Maryland Heights. From a small storefront with limited seating, veteran chef Ben Welch and his father, Bennie, are serving up terrific takes on beef brisket, pork spare ribs, pulled pork and other classics. Meat is also a crucial part of Big Baby Q's best sides, tangy beans with pork and collard greens with smoked ham hocks.
