Barbecue restaurants serve smoked meat—generally a combination of beef, pork, and chicken—with different sides and different cuts.
Barbecue has been trending upwards because of travel and food shows focusing on this lip-smacking good cuisine (even in spite of its relatively unhealthiness).
To each his own
There are many local styles, of which Kansas City, Memphis and Texas may be the most famous. Many famous barbecue regions are known for their different sauces for barbecued pork, such as North Carolina’s vinegar-based sauce or South Carolina’s mustard-based one.
Cooked Slow, Growing Fast
Barbecue is one of the rare food arenas that grew during the recession, and beef brisket in particular has been one of the most popular new menu items in the U.S.
Because the trend is still in the upward swing, there isn’t a lot of competition relative to demand, so now is a great time to purchase a barbecue franchise!
