BBQ

Don't even get barbecue lovers started in a debate about this meat-centric food. What one fanatic in Texas holds as the ultimate recipe will completely differ from a great barbecue dish in North Carolina. Why? The definition of barbecue depends on where you go. Memphis favors dry rubs and cooking the meat in a big pit, while Kansas City is known for its thick, sweet, tomato-based sauces. Travel to the Carolinas, Texas and Alabama and you'll find even more variations. Whether you favor the vinegary pulled pork in North Carolina or the unique white sauce of Alabama, Food & Wine has all the delicious recipes you might want to try.

10 Gas Station Foods Across the Country That Are Worth the Detour
While you may think of Slim Jims, Twinkies and watery coffee as three of the only gas station food options, some remarkable  food and drink is coming out of those little convenience stores. Yes, we’re serious. While the place where you pump your gas may not seem like the ultimate dining destination, there’s actually a long history of gas station restaurants getting real love in America—after all, KFC started inside a humble gas station, and if that isn’t a success story, we don’t know what is. Today, fill stations across the country are offering snacks so good that people are seeking them out as foodie pit stops rather than quick places to pee. So, if you don’t want to settle for a sad rotating weenie under a glass-cased heat lamp, try one of these must-stop, gas-station dining destinations, from spectacular Indian food in Philadelphia to a roadside breakfast sandwich made from a chef with a Michelin-starred background. Road trip, anyone? —Hillary Eaton
