Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a compendium of Carolina BBQ passion culled from years of Mr. Craig hosting a web sight that was unfortunately removed due to the author moving out of state, and having too much other stuff going on to maintain it. Fortunately he thought to put it in a book for those of us who have come to lean heavily on the now-defunct web sight for BBQ destination tips in (mostly North) Carolina.

H. Kent Craig has spent many years eating Carolina Q, and he shares his BBQ experiences and knowledge growing up and living most of his life there. He also has guest reviews. I have personally found the author's reviews to be much more in line with my own tastes than the guest reviewers. In fact, some guest reviewers (in my opinion) have no right to be in print after I tried some of the places they recommended, so I suggest sticking with Mr. Craig's reviews mostly - he hasn't done me wrong yet.

This book is a revised edition of mildly flawed former additions (editing errors only), and in fact - so is this review. If you want a rock solid field guide to getting your pig on in the Carolinas, with thoughtful commentary on more than just where it is, or if it's good, then look no farther.

At any rate, the real meat of this book consists in the three and four pig reviews, the explanation of eastern and western style BBQ, and the section of South Carolina BBQ history. Do not pass up an opportunity to eat at three pig rated establishments, especially if they are conveniently located. Sometimes the margin is quite thin between three pigs and four (the top rating in this book).

All and all a tremendous resource for casual and dedicated BBQ hunters alike when in the Carolinas.

This is a follow up to his web site. As usual Kent is right on the money. Use this book for a BBQ field trip.
