Is Texas known for BBQ?
Texans are so into BBQ, there are four major varieties (that is, preparations) that are regionally specific to East, Central, South, and West Texas. The biggest differences among the four involve the spices and cooking processes for each. Additionally, South Texas BBQ is smothered in a thick, sweet, sometimes molasses-based sauce.
What style of BBQ can be found in Texas?
Although there are four varieties of BBQ style in Texas, two of them are more prominent among the lot: the East Texas and the Central Texas styles of BBQ. The biggest differences between the two styles is in the preparation, spices, and the fact that Central Texas BBQ is generally preferred and served without sauce… although some people will elect to have it on the side.
