Southern Living has declared Salvage to be Maine’s best barbecue.
You may be in northern New England, but from the moment you walk into this Portland gem, you’ll feel Southern-style hospitality in the air. Operating inside of a former salvage warehouse, there’s plenty of space to spread out. And after the Meat Coma (¼ ribs, ⅓ lb of both pulled pork and brisket, along with a bowl of chili and two sides), you’ll be particularly grateful. Don’t skip the sauces. They run the gamut from mild Carolina-style to four-alarm vinegar.
