Alabama Tourism has launched the Year of Alabama Barbecue this month to celebrate the state's barbecue heritage and highlight Alabama as a destination for barbecue lovers.

The year-long campaign includes a Year of Alabama Barbecue website as well as a smart-phone app.

The website will include links to some of the state's best places for ribs, pulled pork and chicken, as well as a barbecue-themed road trip and a calendar listing of the top barbecue festivals around the state.

The phone app features the favorite dishes of more than 75 barbecue restaurants in 52 cities across the state and an alert that notifies users when they are within 20 miles of one of their chosen barbecue spots.
