Alabama Barbecue Contest Down to Final 4

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

The Alabama Tourism Department's contest to find the favorite barbecue restaurant in the state is down to the final four.

The contest started with 32 restaurants and has been whittled down to Big Bob Gibson in Decatur, Jim 'N Nick's in Birmingham, Sam's BBQ in Montgomery and The Shed in Mobile.

Brian Jones of the Alabama Tourism Department said more than 50,000 votes have been cast in the Facebook contest.

It uses brackets that are patterned after basketball's March Madness. The final four will be competing to see which two restaurants make it to the final round. The winner will be announced April 8.

The contest is part of the department's Year of Alabama Food promotion.
