Florida Was Named One Of The Best BBQ Destinations In The Entire U.S.

When you think of the places with the best barbecue, a few states probably come to mind, like Texas, Tennessee, and the Carolinas. Florida probably never crossed your mind, right?

We did a little investigating, and it turns out TripAdvisor released a list of the states serving up America’s best barbecue last summer.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

It’s also worth mentioning that Mental Floss recently released a list of The Best Barbecue Joints In All 50 States, and Al’s Finger Licking Good Bar-B-Que in Tampa was their choice for Florida.

  3. Missouri
  4. North Carolina
  5. Georgia
  6. Florida
  7. South Carolina
