Time Out says

Big Ed is so big—that is, the flavors of his barbecue are so big—that the city can’t contain them: his impeccable barbecue shack is in North Chicago. But don’t let that deter you from getting your hands on the stuff. Ed’s pulled pork radiates with smoke and juices, his ribs are lovingly rubbed with spices—heck, even his sides (sweet, delicious corn muffins) and desserts (silky banana pudding) go beyond the call of duty. So take a road trip, and while you’re there, beg him to open something a little closer.
