Judging by the proliferation of barbecue restaurants which have sprung up in the last 10 years there can be no doubt that Americans love the taste of succulent meats cooked to perfection over a wood fire. The tradition of slow cooking meat over an indirect pit fire goes back to the early days of colonization, and as migrants moved across the country they brought with them their particular style of sauces and rubs. These days each state will offer a slightly different style of barbecue, but all the best BBQ restaurants serve traditional slow-cooked brisket, pork, and ribs. More modern additions include chicken, turkey and sausage and sides are becoming more innovative. The oldest traditional American barbecue restaurants are located in Texas and New Orleans, but some of their modern counterparts are providing stiff competition.
