Culinary historian Michael Twitty on barbecue’s West African roots, and a legendary pitmaster showcases Chicago’s very own style of barbecue.
We ride shotgun with Texas Monthly taco editor Jose Ralat as he embarks on a week-long taco road trip across Texas.
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.
We follow barbecue from West Africa to the American South to the south side of Chicago, with help from culinary historian Michael Twitty and a pitmaster in Chicago.
Live on stage from Chicago! We debate your questions about summer BBQ etiquette with Brendan and Rico from The Dinner Party Download and Greta and Tricia from the Nerdette podcast.
