Pig Out In NC

The Pit BBQ Plate
As the debate rages on about the “real” way to prepare barbecue, TripAdvisor has taken on the task of ranking the top states in the US for barbecue, as reported by the website’s community of millions of travelers. North Carolina has taken the #2 spot, trailing behind Georgia but topping Texas. The site ranked states based on the average rating and total number of reviews for BBQ restaurants, as well as the total number and percentage of restaurants in each state that are classified as BBQ (giving more weight to those with a minimum of 100 reviews). Local favorites like Clyde Cooper’s and The Pit surely helped NC get an edge in the ratings!
