Our best meal in Phoenix: Little Miss BBQ! They are open at 11am and there are people lining up before they open! We got there around 1pm (on the first day, as soon as we arrived, go the rental car, etc), and had to wait in line for about an hour. Too bad the fatty brisket sold out as we waited...

The huge smoker.

We decided to get a variety of meat so we can try different things! Here are the pork ribs.

Beef short rib (really good!), sausages, and lean brisket (super yummy!!)

More gelato to finish our trip! Mango was our favorite!!
