Barbecue requires slow-cooking meat with wood smoke until the protein becomes infused with flavor. L.A. is gaining smoky momentum. Austin legend La Barbecue will appear on Sundays at Smorgasburg LA starting this fall, and Adam Perry Lang plans to open a Hollywood barbecue palace. In the meantime, since May is National Barbecue Month, learn about 11 of the best smoke-buffeted stops across Los Angeles County.
