Many areas of the United States feature amazing barbecue and most of the regions make it differently. The diversity in how barbecue is made across the nation is one of the reasons that it’s such a popular food. You’re almost always going to get something just a little different at every BBQ joint, but two different styles of cooking can result in food that’s amazing in its own way!
That being said, we wanted to see whose barbecue is most popular based on averaged Facebook reviews.
As you’re about to see, these trails represent seriously good BBQ. It was rare to find a restaurant on any of these trails that dipped below four stars which is a serious accomplishment for any type of dining.
Methodology: we researched the Facebook star ratings of each restaurant on the following trails, and then averaged them. Some restaurants had their reviews hidden and when confronted with multiple listings we defaulted to the listing with the most likes. Any ratings from less than five reviewers were discarded.
