The 8 Best BBQ Sandwiches In Maine And Where To Find Them

While states such as Texas, North Carolina and Tennessee are strong contenders, most experts agree that the best barbecue in the country can be found here in Maine. Just kidding! Maine’s food scene is undoubtedly great, but barbecue isn’t exactly our claim to fame. Luckily, it’s 2017 and you can find good barbecue virtually anywhere in America.

At the risk of incurring the wrath of angry Texans with their brisket plates, barbecue is best enjoyed in a sandwich. (Seriously, why would you not want the bread? We’re still perplexed about the restaurant we will not name that charges $2 more for a brisket platter with two sides than it charges for the same amount of brisket on a bun with two sides.) You might be surprised at the number of restaurants in our relatively small Northern state that serve great ones. But then again, especially when it comes to quality food, Maine is always full of surprises.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
