Chef's Notes

Taking a ‘Que From BBQ Joints & Fests

May 2020 | McCormick Culinary

Commanding flavors from culinary, competitive and regional corners of the BBQ world.

What is it about BBQ...

THE PASSION

Barbecue has a wide appeal with over 95 percent of Americans saying they like barbecue, and nearly one-third saying that they eat barbecue or barbecue-sauced foods in any given week. -QSR Magazine

THE PRIDE

Geography plays a role in BBQ sauce preferences. The West has a strong preference for Hawaiian barbecue, and Louisiana barbecue has a heightened presence in the South. -Technomic

THE FESTIVAL NATURE

Over 400 exhibitors show up at the self-proclaimed barbecue capital of the world, Lexington, NC, for their annual one-day festival. The event boasts six entertainment stages, three barbecue tents serving up North Carolina-style sandwiches and platters, arts and crafts, music, and more. -Datassential
