  1. It’s no surprise to me that states like Tennessee, Texas and Missouri are considered 2015’s best states for BBQ in America. However, I am very surprised that California made that list, especially since none of the restaurants on the 2015’s top 10 barbeque restaurants were from that state. What is it about California that makes it one of the best states for that type of food?
