GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

If you're looking for the best barbecue in America, you don't have to go far. Greenville was named among the best barbecue places in the country on a recent list by Livability.com.

The website, which ranks the pluses and minuses of cities across the United States, ranked the ten best places to get a plate of the smoky goodness, putting Greenville in third place.

Brian Pearcy, Livability.com's barbecue expert, cited Greenville's 13 barbecue restaurants, most independently owned, as the reason for its ranking.

Among the restaurants mentioned in the Greenville listing was some of the city's favorites like Henry's Smokehouse, on Wade Hampton Boulevard near downtown, Smoke On The Water, on Main Street in downtown, and Mac's Speed Shop, in the West End.

Where's the best barbecue in the country? It's no surprise that it's the self-proclaimed barbecue capital of America - Lexington, NC.
