I guess that depends on what you call BBQ

In "the south", barbeque is only slow-cooked pulled pork. Every little town has a barbeque joint, and a town of 3,000 people might have 3 or 4 BBQ places, not counting the mom-and-pop operations where someone runs a pit out of their backyard, and sells BBQ in quantity to local people.

It seems like Texas would have the most BBQ joints, because of its size, but then I have to remind myself that beef isn't BBQ. I think Alabama claims to have the most BBQ restaurants, but I don't know if that is legitimate. I'm willing to bet that per-capita, the states of Georgia, Alabama, North and South Carolina have the most, but who knows.

Here it's pork(mostly) and chicken but no beef. In owensboro it's mutton (that just sounds gross).I have no idea how many places we have though. Oh, forgot about ribs! Those can be pork OR beef

I've always thought it was a toss-up between Texas, Tennessee, and North Carolina. All great states for barbeque. Whenever I visit the South, I know I'm in for some gooood eatin' times
