Serving everything from pulled pork shoulder to hush puppies and collard greens, the series is a homespun delight that attempts to satisfy the appetites of barbecue lovers everywhere. Host Rick Browne is as quick with his wit as he is with a fork. Author of the travelogue/cookbook "Barbecue America," Browne leads viewers to the smoky heart and soul of barbecue culture. Shot entirely on location, each episode features a different barbecue event, festival, cook-off or restaurant.
In this episode, Rick Browne journeys to the Carolinas for a BBQ and blues contest. Highlights include the Stone House BBQ, and a pig pickin' party at Dan Hunley's, including grilled peaches, whole hog, barbecue hash, streak-o-lean and his pork shoulder with coleslaw.
