Top cities for BBQ

Posted: Updated:
 Which cities smoke the rest when it comes to great barbecue?

CheapTickets.com booking and survey data reveals the top 10 cities for barbecue in the United States, with Memphis, Austin and Kansas City topping the finger-licking list. According to a new survey released by CheapTickets.com, nearly 40 percent of Americans are willing to travel for food they love, and with the Fourth of July right around the corner, nothing says all-American cuisine quite like a mouthwatering barbecue feast .

"Based on CheapTickets.com survey results, folks are willing to travel for tasty barbecue this summer so we did the legwork to find out which cities Americans thought topped the list," said Gayle Pigatto, general manager of CheapTickets.com.

"Those hopping on a plane over Fourth of July weekend in search of the best slab of ribs can keep costs down by traveling on the actual holiday, which can save a family of four nearly $150 on airfare. Then, stack a CheapTickets hotel promotion code on top of that to get 20 percent off a hotel stay. With travel deals this good, why not go on a hunt for great barbecue?"
