Lolis Eric Elie, Frank Stewart. It was while eating a big ol' plate of steaming ribs that journalist Lolis Eric Elie and photographer Frank Stewart decided to traverse the country to investigate America's obsession with smoked meat. Their quest took them from all-night barbecue binges on Chicago's south side to barbecue competition circuit events like Memphis in May and Big Pig Jig in Vienna, Georgia, where people drop thousands of dollars to spend a sleepless night smoking meat.

As they investigate this nation's obsession with smoked meat, Lolis Elie and Frank Stewart introduce us to the men and women devoted to the demanding art of barbecuing, and, of course, to some good eating - with mouthwatering recipes for meat, sauces, and side dishes.

Scream_I LOVE YOU
I have been waiting to read this book for quite some time. "Smokestack Lighting, Adventures in the heart of Barbecue country". It was well worth the wait. My favorite books and movies have always centered around the "road trip", ofcourse the BBQ element is a major bonus. The first edition came out in the mid 90's, this edition in 2005. It is NOT a cookbook, nor was it intended to be. The writer and photographer toured with the Wynton Marsalis Band and came of with this idea for a book of BBQ.... specifically in the regions its known for.
What resulted was around 50 different places, mostly below the Mason/Dixon, alot of the places some of you have heard of, Lem's, the Rib Joint, Kennys, in Chicago, Bryants, Gates, Rosedale, in KC, the Rendezvous, Cozy's in Memphis... and so on. The majority were word of the mouth, from locals in the area, "Hey, where can I get some good BBQ in this town". Some responses they got were unanimous, most were all over the map.
They talked to alot owners, chefs, pitmasters with names like Big Daddy, Ardie, Heavy, Chinamen, Buck, Oklahoma Joe and Chalmon. There were some items specific to one area, Cow Heads along the Tex/Mex border, mutton in parts of Kentucky, snoots in East Saint Louis, IL.
Some regions prefer mesquite wood, others hickory, oak, or pecan. In many parts of the Carolinas it's gas and electricity that do the cooking.
Some regions its sauce on the side, other regions its on the meats themselves. Some are Tomato based, other are vinegar, or mustard based.
My favorite part of the book was when the author and photographer are drafted to be judges at a BBQ competition in KY, ultimately the definitions of "what is BBQ" and even, "What is GOOD BBQ" are very, very subjective.
When I finally finished the book I had learned quite a bit about the subject, I never thought I knew alot.... but I guess I didnt realize how much I didnt know!
This book was hard to find, I paid twice the listed value, but I didnt pay the current prices listed on Amazon, look them up!!
So it is why I'll say, if this subject interests you, you should have this book...... and "No", I will NOT borrow you my copy... seriously.

I'll leave you with this passage from the book..."Barbecue, whatever the definition, is a central part of gatherings and celebrations throughout much of the nation. The fact that sauces and meats and methods of preparation vary so widely is testimony to the fact that barbecue has been branded with the accent of each region in which it has found a home.

I am now a reformed member of the church of Barbecue. This is a character study of the prophets of slow-cooked meat, a gospel according to Lolis. He (mostly) doesn't judge the people, just their music and their food. His narrative prose is excellent. While no book about cooking can exist without recipes, there aren't many and they're not the important part.

Immediately after finishing this book, I smoked a whole chicken. It took me all day, but it was worth it.

This is HIGHLY ENJOYABLE read! It has humorous moments, sober moments, and just great history. The author does a great job detailing the experience of touring the country's best (as well as some not-so-best) barbecue places. The author is intelligent yet approachable. It will absolutely broaden your perspective of "barbecue!" It's a really fun book - so far the best I've read this year. I've recommended it to all my friends. Absolutely loved it!

Very interesting documentary of a BBQ road trip. The recipes that are included are a bit disappointing. Absolutely worth the read.

Purchased this book for my boyfriend, he loves using a smoker and I love enjoying good BBQ. I look forward to reading it.

More talk than recipes.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a "road trip" adventure looking for the best in bbq throughout many states. Be advised the journey was taken in 1993 so some of the establishments are probably gone by now. This book is a great read with many wonderful photos taken on journey and there are some very good recipes included as well.
This is a phenomenal book! Even the recipes for the side dishes are simple, but incredible! Purchase is money well spent!
