Texas: Best BBQ Destination [study]

Not surprised to hear that news huh? Well Amazonlocal.com did a survey just in time for Labor Day to learn where we can find the best BBQ in America and what Americans are planning to put on their grills during the upcoming long weekend that many consider the closing of the summer season.

The study revealed that Americans chose Texas as the best barbecue destination with 43 percent of the vote, beating Memphis (24 percent), North Carolina (15 percent), Kansas City (13 percent) and Hawaii (5 percent).

Respondents revealed 84 percent of Americans plan to enjoy sweet and tangy barbecue during the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Chicken (39 percent) beat pork (30 percent) as the nation’s meat of choice, with beef coming in third with 26 percent of the vote. Additional consumer preferences expressed in the AmazonLocal survey include:

  • When it comes to what consumers consider the most all-American food, apple pie took the crown with 28 percent of the vote, followed by hamburgers with 25 percent, hot dogs at 20 percent and barbecue at 17 percent 
  • Four in 10 Americans believe slow-smoked is the one true way to cook great barbecue 
  • 91 percent of respondents said they either “love or like” barbecue
Do you have agree with these results? I've never been to Texas so can't agree to that but I know for a fact I will be grilling more chicken during Labor Day than any other meat.
