Friday Find: The Sporkful podcast – “The Holy Smoker”

I recently discovered The Sporkful Podcast through Planet Money’s Indicator podcast, and I like that “it’s not for foodies, it’s for eaters”. In their archives from last October, they have a story about Devin Pickard of Papa Kayjoe’s BBQ in Centerville, TN. An easy, 34 minute listen on barbecue, faith, and Sunday suppers in the South.

During the week, Devin Pickard is the pitmaster at his family’s BBQ restaurant in Centerville, Tennessee. But on Sundays, he trades the pit for the pulpit at the local church where he preaches. Food and faith are a natural pairing in the south, but Devin tells Dan that there are less obvious ways his two professions come together.
