All About Barbecue! The Hotspots, History, and BBQ vs. Grilling

October 13, 2014


Where are the barbecue hotspots in the U.S. and how are they different?  Also a short history of barbecue and the difference between barbecue and grilling, all in this infographic.

The United States has a wide and varied barbecue culture, much more than shown here.  There are local variations on sauces, styles, rubs, meat choice, and how it’s cooked.  The barbecue styles from one region to another have a uniqueness all their own.


What’s your favorite barbecue joint and where is it at?  What do they serve there and what is your favorite (and maybe second favorite)?
