Where Does North Carolina Rank When it Comes to BBQ Enthusiasm?

Posted: Updated:

North Carolinians are shocked, SHOCKED that they aren’t the most BBQ-crazed state in America.

A new study from Ryan Nickum, of Estately.com, has ranked all the states in America based on their enthusiasm for barbeque.

The study is based on a set of five criteria: Barbeque restaurants per capita, Facebook interest in “barbeque,” Percentage of Restaurants that are barbeque, Google searches for “barbeque,” and barbeque accessory stores/charcoal production.

Barbeque has a huge history in North Carolina, but shockingly, NC managed to rank in at number ten overall, even losing out to South Carolina.
