I just read an entire article on CNN’s website called “Does your state have the best BBQ?” or the “Quest for the best barbecue” and only saw “North Carolina” mentioned once! The entire article could have been just one sentence: “Yes, my state, which is North Carolina, does have the best barbecue.”
The word “Texas” was mentioned way, way too many times.
We live in the Web 2.0 age, so CNN has provided a place for readers to comment, discuss, and argue. Plus, there’s a map showing user-submitted locations for the best barbecue. I’m equally dismayed that only one place in NC has a “red lollipop.” (Four in Tennessee? Seven in Texas? One in Minnesota? One in Massachusetts?) Take a look at the page here: “The Best Barbecue Around.”
