There are four main regional varieties of traditional, slow-cooked barbecue in America.
Kansas City style barbecue is characterized by thick, tomato-based sauces containing a substantial amount of sugar .Kansas City style rubs are mostly brown sugar, or some other form of sugar as well. It’s imperative that Kansas City barbecue be cooked slowly over low heat, or you’ll end up with a crispy black lump of caramelized burnt sugar. Kansas City style barbecue usually focuses on pork, pork ribs, and chicken.
Memphis style barbecue is somewhat similar to Kansas City style, but doesn’t pack nearly as much sugar as that stuff from further west. Memphis style tends to be more spicy than Kansas City style, and pork ribs or butt are usually the primary meats.
Carolina style barbecue is pork. Not much if any of a rub is used; this barbecue is sauce-based. Carolina sauce in general is thin and watery, tangy, and peppery.
At Danny’s Little Taste of Texas our Favorite is Texas Style BBQ.
Texas barbecue focuses on beef. Might be a little chicken or pork ribs tossed in as sort of garnish, but in general it’s beef, beef and more beef. Sauces tend to be thin and bold, more like a basting or mop sauce and are heavy with flavor from various kinds of ground chilis, cumin, onion, hot sauce, meat drippings and even beer or coffee. At Danny’s we serve up pretty much anything BBQ related that you could imagine.
