Just in time for backyard BBQ season, ‘America’s Top 10 Grilling Hot Spots’ and more are revealed in gourmet grill maker Napoleon’s new Grilling the NationTM research study, conducted by ORC International.
While Americans share a common love for grilling, certain regional BBQ styles dominate the national landscape. Places like The Carolinas and Texas have been seared into our brains as the bastions of BBQ, making the ‘America’s Top 10 Grilling Hot Spots’ list even more surprising. The No.1 city most fired up about grilling — Atlanta.
Napoleon commissioned market research leader ORC International to do in-depth analysis of online conversations surrounding grilling, identifying the cities most sizzling with grilling enthusiasm. Of course Kansas City, rich with BBQ heritage, made the list; however, not ahead of Atlanta, a city with chops of its own. Next up is Washington, D.C. where grilling is more or less a national pastime, whether it’s of presidential candidates or their world-famous chili dogs. And then there’s Miami, a melting pot of BBQ flavors, cuisines and restaurants that all add up to good eats.
