Here at Seriously Smoked, we love all things BBQ. We also wanted to find out what our fellow BBQ fans are searching for online, from some top tips, recipes to BBQ types and tools.
For that reason, we looked into Google Trends and analyzed some of the most popular BBQ related searches and how much these have increased since lockdown.
So, what has our research revealed?
The data shows that BBQ lovers have made increasingly frequent searches online for how to enhance their BBQ skills at a time when many people are forced to be at home due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Here are a few of the most popular trends we found.
The term “BBQ recipes” saw a 226% increase in Google searches between late March and late May. The top 3 states searching this term were Montana, Wyoming and Oregon.
