Years ago my husband and I embarked on a fourteen-day multi-state barbecue journey. We left from Chicago and wound up in Alabama, having eaten barbecue 4 times a day in Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, North and South Carolina, Georgia--I think that covers it! We've been dreaming about barbecue ever since. Now a decade and 4 kids later, we'd like to experience good barbecue again and introduce our children to real barbecue. We wouldn't do a trip dedicated to driving as that one was--but where can we go that we can drive to easily enough from New York--maybe in North or South Carolina--that has a good concentration of great barbecue places, more or less in the same area? Any recommendations?
