What's the difference between different barbeques?
In most parts of the country, barbeque is barbeque. Sure, sauces taste different from one another, but if a regular Joe orders barbeque chicken, he just expects a piece of poultry cooked on a grill with some sauce on it.
In some parts of the country though, barbeque is a way of life. There are certain areas where barbeque is only done one way, and all other barbeques are worthless. Three of the biggest areas that work this way are Kansas City, Memphis and North Carolina. These three geographic areas each think they have barbecue perfected and that their way is the only way.
