"Your Favorite Barbeque Spots in Central TX Ranked" (US 105 FM)

Killeen/Temple radio station US 105 FM took a poll, asking its listeners to list their favorite area BBQ joints. Here are the top 5. The article reads:

Barbecue establishments in Central Texas are many and the competition is fierce. When we wanted to survey which restaurants in our area served the best smoked meats according to our listeners, we had no idea a write-in candidate would make the top five… or that so many votes would come from the same IP address. Come on, we can tell when someone is trying to stack the deck. The days of manipulating web polls are long gone. After our webmaster filtered out multiple responses from the same person, we were left with a clear list of favorites. Out of over 800 unique voters, here’s the top five:

  1. Johnny’s Steaks & Bar-Be-Que (Salado) 14.89%
  2. Backyard BBQ (Morgan’s Point) 13.75%
  3. Petty’s BBQ (Killeen) 12.62%
  4. Butler’s BBQ (Killeen) 12.04%
  5. Miller’s Smokehouse (Belton) 8.09%

A lot of comments from the northern part of Central Texas. Hadn't heard of Backyard, Butler's or Petty's BBQ before, but will definitely try to get out there.

Johnny's & Miller's are both excellent joints.

A smallish campaign with a homemade list would not be likely to yield much of a result. To achieve anything worthwhile, a much more aggressive effort is needed. Then, the age-old value analysis applies: projected earnings = margin on total projected sales - cost of campaign.
