9781423602187: BBQ Joints: Stories and Secret Recipes from the Barbeque Belt

In Barbecue Joints, travel the highways and byways with a true barbecue aficionado, David Gelin, and share the scrumptious odors of hickory pits and the tangy sauces and rubs that make barbecue the signature dish of the South. Look closely and you will recognize a South where barbecue is a kind of national dish and the people who cook and serve it are, well, national heroes. This book is not just about the joints, but even more so about the good folks who are the heart and soul of them. Barbecue Joints is more than a heartfelt tale of the colorful characters that run them-it also serves as a travel guide as well as a how-to on barbecue, filled with recipes as well as instruction on building a BBQ pit of your very own!

From the Back Cover:

Ride shotgun with barbecue aficionado David Gelin as he follows the trail of smoldering hickory and mesquite. BBQ Joints: Stories and Secret Recipes from the Barbecue Belt features the best-sometimes out-of-the-way, sometimes hole-in-the-wall-places to find great barbecue. It tells the stories, histories and philosophies of the joints and their owners. An insider's view of barbecue, BBQ Joints is a wild ride you won't want to miss!

"David Gelin has the ability to capture the true essence of these amazing people and their legendary old BBQ shrines with his camera. When he added the wonderful stories and recipes it became a great book. As a student and fan of these people and places, I'm particularly pleased to see them so well documented for history's sake." -Ray Lampe, aka Dr. BBQ

"Barbecue is as American as baseball, mom and apple pie. David introduces us to the heart and soul of the very real people serving up real barbecue, and sharing their passion for barbecue-America's cuisine." -Carolyn Wells, Executive Director, Kansas City?Barbeque Society

"Gelin's work is not a celebration of barbecue alone-his work reaches much deeper.?His photography communicates the intimacy and passion shared by the people keeping these traditions vibrant and relevant. God bless these folks-they're the reason I keep a pair of elastic-waist pants in my closet." -Saddler Taylor, Chief Curator of Folklife and Research McKissick Museum, University of South Carolina
