    Bandana's would be a distant 3rd to the first two you mentioned.

    This. Dare I say I think I like Smokey D's better? It was so good when I last had it!

    Jethro's and Smokey D's are both really good. But my favorite has to be Woody's Smoke Shack by Drake. With cornbread and honey butter to eat while you wait.

    Bandana's pulled pork is better than both Jethro's and Smokey D's. Also, their original sauce is better than anything offered by those other two. Where Jethro's and Smokey D's catch up, and possibly surpass, is with their other meats.

    This. Not many have tried/know of Woody's. We've hired him to cater tailgates before. Hauls up the smoker and does an amazing job.
