As a SC native that loves his mustard-based BBQ, I had to vote for it.

But I think Missouri should have been an option instead of Kansas; I'm guessing the OP was thinking about Kansas City but St. Louis is known for BBQ as well.

Yep I meant Kansas City hhaha. Oh well sorry about that..

I had to add the other states as well. Im kinda surprised to see a Georgia vote so soon. Georgia isn't really known for a bbq shtick are they?

I don't disagree.. But have you had some of the famous places in Texas? Primarily the brisket? It's unlike and better than anywhere I've personally tried, which is NOT everywhere but many places.

I've only been to Texas on that list, so I can't wait to visit the south one day and get some real BBQ, because it's not too popular where I live.

It's a list of states, not cities--which is good. States like North Carolina and Texas are particularly noted for their BBQ but it's not really associated with any one (large) city.

I did states because the general "taste" of the area is similar among cities within that area.

I don't think I left out any major players.

By Kansas I really mean KC, I couldn't change the poll though.

No but people usually talk about the Austin area when you're referring to Texas bbq. Franklins, Kreuz, Smitty's, Saltlick, Black's are in or around Austin.
