Looks like an east coast bias to me.
There are few that have not made the list like a little cook down in Houston.

The American Royal is rated too low. That's a little "nowhere near a coast" bias for ya! :D

Yep. HLSR cookoff is #4.

Anybody going to that one?

If you were there for all the days last year, you would have been with 180,000 of your closest friends.

Most people say that the AR is #1. Definite EC bias.
