Summer Barbeques Take on Different Tastes Throughout the Country
Famous Dave's serves up regional BBQ on one platter
MINNETONKA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--America loves a great summer tradition, and there are few words linked with "summer" as often as the word "barbeque." For true aficionados, however, the "summer barbeque" takes on a very different taste depending on which region of the country is being represented.
With long-time regional traditions that cover everything from the type of meat (pork and beef being the leaders) to the cooking method (smoked vs. grilled, for example) to the type of sauce (ketchup-based, mustard-based and others), there are as many types of barbeque as there are regions of the U.S. And that means there are a lot of barbeque possibilities to explore with the arrival of summer.
Famous Dave's is offering a tasty lesson in regional differences with their limited time "BBQ Tour." This is one summer trip that won't even require barbeque lovers to fill up the gas tank. From now until July 20, Famous Dave's is serving up a BBQ Tour platter that features the distinct flavors from three different legendary barbeque capitals from around the U.S. In one serving, Famous Dave's hits St. Louis with their signature style of spareribs, Georgia chopped pork and Texas beef brisket. The platter also comes with another summer favorite as an added bonus - strawberry shortcake.
"Every region of the country takes a different approach to preparing barbeque, and at Famous Dave's we've made it our business to know them," said Glenn Drasher, vice president of marketing Famous Dave's. "The BBQ Tour is a delicious way to raise your barbeque IQ and learn about some of the great flavors from around the country."
Dave Anderson, the founder of Famous Dave's, spent over 25 years traveling the country to learn about the distinct regional styles of barbeque to create Famous Dave's recipes.
