I'll have to agree. For most folks down South (or in BBQ regions) it is a non issue. But a lot of people in regions where BBQ doesn't have a presence they rely on what they know or have been taught about meat. "Pink"=raw.
So the smart thing for businesses trying to break into these regions might do is to head this off at the pass. Put it out there, explain it, and move on.
