SMOKIN’ HOT TRENDS
Here are some of the latest trend predictions from America’s BBQ guru, Steven Raichlen1:
Breakfast is the next great frontier for BBQ flavors, as bold flavors give a boost to the start of the day.
Unique spice blends like dukkah out of Egypt or sharena sol from Bulgaria will be next great wave of BBQ flavor.
More than ever people care about where their food comes from almost as much as how it’s made.
% of consumers that prefer the flavor:
Texas: Spicy with a touch of sweetness
Southern: Bright, tangy, spicy, and slightly sweet
