Somehow Dr. BBQ managed to put out a book with four topics running together and at the same time! There is the cookbook portion, stories about regional bbq cuisine all intertwined with explainations of the barbecue competition circuits.
The recipies are for everything in the BBQ world, rubs, sauces, meats, beverages, side dishes, and desserts.
This is not a tour of every restaurant in each area but a
he hits the major ones and then hits a couple no one has heard of.
The book starts out with his tour of Kansas City. There is 16 topics in the Kansas City section, including the American Royal and KCBS itself. The restaurants each get a little write up.
Then he was off to North Carolina (because Kansas City and North Carolina are right next to each other, right?) He heads off with a friend to score each location. Oddly he does not score the KC locations.
Tennessee was next. Memphis in May is discussed as well as 'The Jack.'
Something else about the book sticks out in this section. He discusses the sterotypes of each style and tears it down if it isn't true. For example Putting slaw on a pork sandwich is considered a Carolina thing, however in Memphis you get slaw served on pork sandwiches. Locations are not scored again just discussed.
Now he heads off to Teaxas where he scores the locations again. It is done on a different scale as Carolina but scored none the less.
he then is off to the North Midwest, Illinois, Ohio, etc. and then to the South, the east, and even the west. No locations are rated but there is more the same - locations you may have heard from with some good recipes mixed in.Read more ›
I have nothing but respect for the author and absolutely love his writing. Refreshing and really well writen.

IT took me a while to figure this out. There must not be any BBQ restaurants in South Carolina, since there are no reviews in this book. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Jim House
