Vote for your favorite cookout food
The Fourth of July is a time for festivities, friends, family, fireworks and — perhaps most importantly — food. It’s the Thanksgiving of summer. The smokiest time of year. The grill’s time to shine.
When we think of big backyard cookouts for Independence Day, we picture everything barbecue — from meaty mains like pulled pork and ribs to sunny sides like coleslaw and corn on the cob.
But which dish is the king of the grill?
Enter TODAY’s 4th of July BBQ Bracket, which fired up Tuesday with the “Smoky Sixteen.” After a tight battle between hot dogs and ribs (which Savannah, who is adamantly Team Hot Dog, called “saucy bones“), we made it to the “Edible Eight” on Wednesday, and now we’re onto the “Fiery Four.”
All week, we’re flipping our way through some of the most popular cookout foods and you’re voting on your favorites, here:
