Alabama Tourism launches the Year of Alabama Barbecue in March 2015 to celebrate the state's barbecue heritage and highlight Alabama as a destination for barbecue lovers.

The Year Of Alabama BBQ

The year-long campaign will include a Year of Alabama Barbecue website which will be available from mid March as well as a smart-phone app. The website will include links to some of the state's best places for ribs, pulled pork and chicken, as well as a barbecue-themed road trip and a calendar listing the top barbecue festivals around the state. The phone app features the favourite dishes of more than 75 barbecue restaurants in 52 cities across the state and an alert that notifies users when they are within 20 miles of one of their chosen barbecue spots!

Grab your napkins....barbecue has deep roots in Alabama from secret sauces to cooking techniques passed down through generations. Isn't it about time you experienced it for yourself?
