The brisket sandwich at Hendricks BBQ in St. Louis is a Platonic ideal.
Beef is archetypal 'cue, but these chickens from Pork on a Fork in Phoenix also count.

Don't forget the sides, like these sweet potato fries from Gourmet Command Center at the Arizona Barbecue Festival 2013

This ain't no sandwich. It's a sammich, fresh from Bryan's Black Mountain Barbecue in Cave Creek, Arizona.
That's some classy BBQ chicken at Distrito in Scottsdale.
You can feel the way this brisket from Thelma's Bar-B-Que in Houston would crumble in your mouth.

The ribs at Sugarfire Smoke House in St. Louis might as well be Biblical.
Kevin Lara
These bacon-wrapped jalapenos at the Orange County BBQ Festival should light up the internet.

Good brisket requires a good smoker, like this one at Bludso's in Compton.

Kevin Lara
Oh, right, we get it. Although we do wonder what a vegetarian would be doing at the Orange County BBQ Festival anyway.
