It’s been a while since we’ve done a tournament bracket. Our Most Liked Series has covered tacos, burgers, and pizza. Now it’s time to move on to the latest category that is definitely a polarizing one that could bring a lot of debate. It’s time to unveil the Wichita’s Most Liked BBQ tournament bracket.
A tournament bracket featuring a whopping 32 restaurants, food trucks, and pop-ups around town dishing out BBQ. I originally wanted to focus on locally owned places, but to make it an even 32, we placed all the options we could find in and around town.
The list includes nearly every locally owned BBQ restaurant in Wichita and just outside of town, along with some national chains to fill out the tournament bracket.
The point of this whole bracket is three-fold:
- Introduce you all to the incredible number of options many of you may have never heard of.
- Use this platform of Wichita By E.B. to help give some exposure to places that rarely get love elsewhere.
- Have a little fun in the name of BBQ.
REMEMBER, the results of this post don’t necessarily mean they are the best BBQ, but more of which place has the most online support, thus Most Liked. So if your favorite place doesn’t win, please cry to your parents….. not me. This all comes down to social media support on Facebook and Twitter, where the voting will be held. In the end, I hope you can find some new BBQ options you may have never heard of or tried! And just like the previous bracket, I will not be voting in any bracket. This will be left strictly to the general audience.
I do have ONE REQUEST. When you vote, ask yourself if you’re voting for what you truly feel is the BEST BBQ, or if you’re just voting to support said place based on other reasons. It’s up to you what criteria you consider for best BBQ; this isn’t rocket science. Just have some fun. Obviously, there is no way to regulate it but I just wanted to throw that out there.
Starting Friday, you will find a poll featuring matchups on the Wichita By E.B. Facebook page and our Twitter to vote for your favorite. There will likely be a many days early on where there are multiple polls on Twitter or Facebook.
So with that said, here’s the unveiling of the bracket brought to you by Turnkey – Keller Williams Hometown Partners.
The quest for 32 down to 1 begins now. May the best BBQ win.
