Lovett's photography shows beautifully decaying signs, weathered hands stoking fires, embers glowing “deep in dark metal caverns, and barbecue platters of all varieties. It's the story of an American tradition that's endangered, for all that it's in vogue. One gets a sense of urgency from Barbecue Crossroads: preserve these traditions before it's too late. (Paula Forbes Eater.com)
Award-winning writer Robb Walsh captures life and culture like a Steinbeck of the South. The story of barbecue is layered and intimate…There are visceral pleasures: the freshly chopped pork sandwich eaten at a Formica counter, coconut pie eaten over the car hood. But Walsh, who has written extensively about the history of Texas food, always gives you something deeper to chew on…A masterful piece of documentation, the book is a labor of love and time — like barbecue itself. (Eve Hill-Angus Dallas Morning News)
In the end, you feel privileged to have been invited along and a whole lot smarter about not only smoked meat in all of its many guises, but this lovely and confounding part of the country. (Russ Parsons Los Angeles Times 2013-06-26)

The recipes sound so great that I am tempted to insult my husband's gas grill and go get a genuine offset wood burning BBQ pit and try some whole pork shoulders every once in a while. I love the sauce recipes, rubs, and sides like potato salad and hush puppies. There is also a terrific looking fried catfish recipe as well. The sweet potato pie looks amazing. And of course Walsh has a lot to say about cooking the meat, telling you each pit masters technique as well as how they burn down the wood and shovel the coals. I loved reading Walsh's thoughts on the BBQ cook-off TV shows, and politics and money of the cook-off circuit, as well as community BBQs that I will now have to seek out.Read more ›
Wait until you read about Reverend Jeremiah "Baby J" McKenzie and Reverend Leroy Hodge. Both are men of God and both are pitmasters. I have never met them but I will bet that their theology and BBQ are top notch. And that is just one chapter in this magnificent book. Do you like the real deal? Gotta' get this book!
