    I'm a South Carolinian so BBQ and biking are my two favorite things. But I wish the web site had more info. Is there a list of designated places you're supposed to visit? Are they all in one region?

    The beauty of this Grand Tour is that you discover the places to go. The major requirement is that the "joint" you visit and photograph the sign is that it have Barbeque, BBQ, or some variant in the name on the sign.

    You must visit 15 BBQ joints, in one or the other of the following configurations:

    15 joints ; 5 different joints in each of 3 different states
    15 joints; 3 different joints in each of 5 different states
    15 joints; 1 joint in each of 15 different states.

    pretty simple...pick your own degree of difficulty. It is really more of a personal challenge than a competition in that if your are a "finisher" you are eligible for the same prize drawing as any other finisher, regardless of which "level" you choose.

    Ahh, I see. I'll have to think about it. Five in Pennsylvania and Maryland would be a piece of cake. If I do my planned full length of the Blue Ridge Parkway ride this year, it would be easy to include Virginia and North Carolina.
