What do the South and South Idaho have in common? There are the kinds of "colorful" locals that cable TV likes to create reality shows around, and the proclivity to wear camo. Apart from those things, there's also a shared love of good barbecue. And while our region might not be known for barbecue, Goodwood is doing what it can to solve that. From racks of baby back ribs to brisket to chicken, if it can be barbecued, Goodwood has it. We're happy to share this love with our neighbors to the southeast--the other stuff is a different story. 7849 W. Spectrum St., Boise, 208-658-7173; 1140 N. Eagle Road, Meridian, 208-884-1021, goodwoodbbq.com.
