Barbecue is a national obsession, with styles and dishes as unique as the folks who serve them. New Orleans is no different and serves up its own spins on smoked meats and sides along with the classic BBQ varieties. Barbecue has entered a sort of slow-smoked renaissance as it continues to shift from the no-fuss, casual cuisine into something equally suited for both dining rooms and tailgates.
No matter where you’re from, everyone can agree that nothing says summer like barbecue. Between Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July, and simply enjoying the warm weather with your favorite people, you can’t go wrong with one of these NOLA barbecue favorites.
