Smoky, saucy, Cabot 'cue aplenty

posted: 02/19/2015 2:10 a.m. Discuss

In 1995 "The Natural State" was officially adopted as Arkansas' state nickname. But I think it's also unofficially safe to say that Arkansas is "The Barbecue State." From one corner to another you'll find restaurants offering pork, chicken, ribs and brisket served different ways.
