From The Bookjacket:
Bar-B-Q aficionados from around the world pilgrimage to Memphis for John Willingham's famous, braggin' rights Bar-B-Q. Feisty debates have erupted right there, in the midst of fire and smoke, over whether Willingham's ribs with Memphis-style sauce or his World Champion Brisket rubbed with Hot Seasoning are his best. And no one goes home before they've had his gooey, rich shoofly pie.

But it's not just the perfectly prepared meats and sauces on which Willingham lavishes special attention. No Bar-B-Q feast would be complete without starters, salads, fixin's, slaws, and dessert. And Willingham has the blue ribbon recipes for them all. Take, for example, his Smokin' Fastball Wings cooked over hickory or apple wood, melt-in-your-mouth Angel Biscuits, or stand-up spicy Cajun Coleslaw. To cool off, there's Grandma's Raisin Bread Pudd'n with Rum Sauce, Old-Fashioned Custard Pie, or rich Maple Sauce spooned over ice cream, to mention just a few, for dessert.

Smokestack Lightning Adventures in the Heart of Barbecue Country
by: Lolis Eric Elie & Frank Stewart
From The Bookjacket:

A Seriously Funny Search for the Art and Culture of Barbecue

It is while eating a plate of funny looking ribs with thin vinegary sauce in North Carolina that Lolis Elie and Frank Stewart decide to investigate the nation's obsession with smoked meat. Obviously, barbecue is a broader concept than they imagined, having grown up with sweet, tomato-based sauces and short-end ribs.

Their quest takes them from the barbecued cow heads of south Texas to the barbecued pig snouts (tasty if tough) of East St. Louis, Illinois. From the all-night barbecue binges on Chicago's South Side to barbecue competition circuit events like Memphis in May and Vienna, Georgia's Big Pig Jig, where people spend thousands of dollars to stay up all night smoking meat. They check out famous and obscure BBQ places from Kansas City, Missouri, to Hope, Arkansas, but ultimately come back to Memphis and Hawkins Grill, a barbecue oasis of Frank's youth, which he now mourns as "a dinosaur without a mate."

En route, Lolis and Frank introduce us to the men and women devoted to this demanding art, and, of course, to some good eating-with recipes for meat, sauces, and side dishes.

North Carolina Barbecue Flavored by Time
by: Bob Garner
From The Bookjacket:
In North Carolina, one topic has inspired an intense debate that has raged through the decades. Democrats vs. Republicans? Tippling vs.Teetotaling? Carolina vs. State? Nah, we're talking really important here.We're talking barbecue.

Walk into Stamey's Barbecue in Greensboro, or Lexington Barbecue in Lexington, and you'll get a serving of slow-roasted pork shoulder, served with a sweet 'n sour "dip" that includes a hint of tomato sauce. People in Piedmont North Carolina call that barbecue. But if you walk into Scott's Famous Barbecue in Goldsboro, or Parker's inwilson, you'll get barbecue prepared from the whole hog, seasoned with a lively blend of vinegar and pepper, without a drop of tomato anywhere. That's what eastern North Carolinians call barbecue. To barbecue novices-usually people from other states-the differences may appear subtle, but to aficionados, they are significant. (If you're from North Carolina, you're an aficionado; if you just moved here, you'll be one before long.)

But don't get North Carolinians wrong: no matter what part of the state it's from, North Carolina barbecue is barbecue the way it should be. In North Carolina Barbecue, Bob Garner takes us on a delectable journey across the state in search of the best examples of this distinctive North Carolina delicacy. Along the way he explores such important topics as cooking with wood vs. electricity, the proper etiquette for a pig picking, the differences between North Carolina barbecue and the stuff they serve in the rest of the country-even how to make your own Tar Heel barbecue. What he discovers on this journey is that, while the debate rages on, there is no doubt that barbecue is a delicious and important part of the state's heritage and identity.

About The Author:
Bob Garner is a reporter and producer for UNC-TV, where he has aired several popular segments on barbecue for the nightly news magazine, North Carolina Now. Recently he created an hour-long program devoted to the state's barbecue culture. Additionally, his barbecue credentials include being certified by the North Carolina Pork Producer's Association as a barbecue Judge. He lives in Burlington, NC.
Texas on the Halfshell: Tex-Mex, Barbecue, Chili and Lone Star Delights
by: Phil Brittin & Joseph Daniel
From The Bookjacket:
Step up and say howdy to the Lone Star food groups: Barbecue, Chili, Tex-Mex and Traditional Texas. There's a long tall Texan in town with a different brand of grub that's already staked a claim on the most discriminating palates around.

Here are the secrets of world-class "chili-heads," the legends and lore of Lone Star fare, the authentic best of the Great Empire of Texas. You,ll learn to build a 55-gallon drum smoker and to master the fine art of slow smoking, to dig a four-star BBQ pit, to identify each of the many peppers which lend distinctive zing to everything from killer chili to Jalapeno Pie. You'll learn what a Rocky Mountain Oyster is, who are the hottest chefs on the chili circuit and much, much more.

Whether it's a craving for 'cue or a flare of chili passion, an irresistible desire for a mess of Mamma Doris' Country Fried Rattlesnake or a thirst for a Pink Armadillo, Texas On The Halfshell can satisfy it -- and then some. It's been a long trail that's led through smoky BBQ pits and crowded chili parlors, spicy Tex-Mex joints and downhome country kitchens to corral the 300-odd recipes presented here, but when you tie on the feed bag you'll reckon it was all worthwhile.

About The Authors:
Second only to art, food is Phil Brittin's favorite pastime. He started eating as a child, and hasn't stopped since. He's an expert on Western history and lore whose uncanny ability to extract the truth of the tallest Texas tale made this book possible. A Westerner born and bred, Joe Daniel is the great-grandson of grocer Ben Daniel, whose chain of grocery stores was famous for its private brand: Daniel's Pride. Though the stores were long ago absorbed into more modern supermarkets, the pride lives on in Joe's approach to a contemporary book on food, not merely a compilation of recipes, but a document of a unique culture.
