Barbeque is one of those foods that means different things to different people. Some people prefer a strong vinegary taste when they chomp down on a rib, while others delight in a sweet, smoky bite that transports their taste buds to heaven.
A recent article posted on Eater.com illustrates how the Alabama tourism agency has named 2015 the “Year of Alabama Barbeque.” That’s right; move over Memphis and the Carolinas. Alabama is looking to become the go-to vacation spot for barbeque lovers all over the globe.
Folks at Bulletproof Coffee (upgradedself.com) have found that the state of Alabama is pulling out all the stops in its efforts to claim stake in barbeque lover’s land. They have developed an app for Smartphones, a Hall of Fame for local barbeque restaurants and they’ve even conducted thorough research into the history of barbeque and what it has meant to the Alabama landscape.
I think this is a wonderful campaign that is sure to drive thousands of tourists to Alabama to see what they have to offer.
