Bar-B-Clue: How to Find the Best BBQ Around

by admin on January 3, 2013 · 9 comments

Finding the best of anything in life is a rarity, but it’s a conquest we all strive to overcome. The search to satisfy our hunger is one of the most important and never ending quests that we all face, especially when it comes to BBQ. However, finding the best might be easier than you think.

You can waste a lifetime searching for the best BBQ around, which is why you need to look for clues. It’s important to be efficient and resourceful about your conquest for the best barbecue. Sometimes a great way to be efficient is to pay attention to what others are saying and doing.


Noise is what the players in the BBQ game are doing to get attention. If you watch some of the shows on the Food Network, you’ll know what attention is. Hosts go all over the country finding the best of the best tasting barbecue. However, sometimes it can be the presentation and not just the taste. For instance, this whole hog!

Not only is this award-winning BBQ, but the presentation itself deserves a blue ribbon!

There are two types of noise:

a) News: Someone thinks a particular BBQ needs coverage and generates news about them. This spreads awareness. This is particularly beneficial because typically the BBQ being covered didn’t have to ask for attention. They earned it.

b) Awards: This is the next step above news. If there is a BBQ that receives an award, then it provides a great opportunity for news, which makes the noise double effective. Award-winning BBQ that generates awareness? Better prepare for a herd of people wanting to try it.


Noise is all about recognition. Recognition is a major factor in your search and it helps you in two ways:

a) Makes Searching Easier: Recognition helps you narrow the search by letting the news come to you with BBQ noise, rather than you searching for it. Unless of course you want to explore more in your BBQ conquest, then the search will be much more difficult and time consuming.

b) Tells You What’s Good: The barbecue that gets the most attention and wins awards is obviously a good sign of what’s the best. It’s the blue ribbon standard!

Eat It All!

To find the best BBQ around is to eat all the BBQ you can find. I mean all of it! It’s the same concept as “10,000 Hours”, meaning you must do something for 10,000 hours to become an expert at it. BBQ is no exception. It takes skill to understand it and in order to conquer your quest, you just might have to stretch your stomach muscle and dig in.

Sometimes when you’re searching for the best, let others and reviews tell you what’s good, what’s not or what deserves recognition. Other times, just point your nose to the wind and find out for yourself. After all, taste is subjective…more or less.
