My adventures as a CH began when I picked up a marked down, out-of-print book Real Barbecue by Greg Johnson and Vince Staten (1988). After reading the book, I talked two friends into a Kansas City road trip to try BBQ. As I used the book to guide us to the first place we decided to try, the neighborhood got scarier and scarier. When we finally found the spot we got hysterical--the place had burnt to the ground and the ruins were still smoldering.Fortunately, other spots were terrific and three CH were born.
Does anyone know of a guide to BBQ spots all over the country? Would you refer me to a book, video or a website? I'd also love to know if anyone knows the book I am referring to. Thanks.
