Monk: Author Jim Auchmutey stops by the Kevin’s BBQ Joints podcast to discuss his excellent book, “Smokelore: A Short History of Barbecue in America.” I got it for Christmas and highly recommend it. It’s a quick read with lots of beautiful archive photographs.

It is a must have book for ANYONE interested in barbecue and how barbecue has evolved over the years to become what it is today across the United States.
