Lots of different definitions for "best", but since you're not wanting winter only tires, studs are out of the question.
Yes BFG ATs are great in snow for about the first 50% of their tread life and then fall off, not unlike most other tires.
My personal favorite for "best" in snow, ice, deep snow and summer as well, on and off road is find a set of deep lug mud tires. Not talking swampers, just normal mud terrains. Sipe the treads, center rows only, not the outside row on each side of the tire.
Aside from the noise of mud tires when you're on dry pavement, they fit the bill as good as most any other tire, and do better in deeper soft snow than AT treads.
Goodyear Duratacs are about the close-est rendition of what I'm describing, without having them siped separately. Ran a set of those in the winter on the Western Slope and they were great as well.
