What’s Your Favorite Way To BBQ?

Happy National Barbecue Day!  It’s always May 16th, but no one really seems to know why.  May has been National BBQ MONTH since 1981 though, so I suppose they had to fit it in somewhere.

A new poll found 92% of Americans look forward to grilling season this year.  84% of us hope we do it even more than we did last year.  Here are a few more quick stats and facts for National BBQ Day:

1.  Most Americans think they could get a grill started.  83% say they could successfully get a charcoal grill going.  73% said the same about propane grills.

2.  Our favorite things to cook on a grill, in order, are burgers, chicken, hot dogs, and steak.  At least 50% of Americans said they’d be fine eating any of those.

3.  Our five favorite burger toppings, in order, are:  Cheese, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions.  Pickles, mustard, and bacon also made the top ten.

4.  Do you say “barbecue” or “cookout”?  It might depend on where you grew up.  People from the South and Northeast are a little more likely to say “cookout.”  People out West and in the Midwest are more likely to say “barbecue.”
