We're solidly in the middle at number 5. The list used the following criteria:

  • Steak houses per capita
  • Butchers/meat shops per capita
  • Barbecue restaurants per capita
  • Burger joints per capita
  • Hot dog vendors per capita
  • Number of National BBQ Festivals annually
  • Cattle ranches within 15 miles
