We may have some questions about the validity of this survey.

The website Zippia set out to determine what states love barbecue the most. With Labor Day upon us, chances are high that you'll be doing some grilling this weekend, so this should have been a fun study to take us into the holiday weekend.

Unfortunately, Zippia has made a dire mistake by leaving Texas, a state known for its barbecue, out of the top ten states that love barbecue!

Their research concluded that these ten states love it the most:

1-Montana

2-Kansas

3-Missouri

4-Wyoming

5-Oklahoma

6-Tennessee

7-South Carolina

8-Arkansas

9-Louisiana

10-Alabama

Zippia has Texas coming in at 13, in between Nebraska and Alaska.

As far as the ten states that love barbecue the least:

41-Maryland

42-Maine

43-Florida

44-Pennsylvania

45-California

46-New Jersey

47-Connecticut

48-New York

49-Massachusetts

50-Rhode Island

Zippia came to their findings by looking at "how many BBQ restaurants were available per capita, and checked in on the search volume for brisket, ribs, BBQ and BBQ sauce."

That might be what the numbers indicate, but we don't agree. Do you?
