Event Description

In this presentation, the "Hungry Professor" surveys Kentucky's wildly variable regional barbecue traditions with a slide show and tales of the people, places, and plates he's encountered all over the state while researching The Kentucky Barbecue Book, the first comprehensive exploration of Kentucky’s distinct barbecue traditions and regional variations. // The Kentucky Barbecue Book is a feast for readers who are eager to sample the finest fare in the state. From the banks of the Mississippi to the hidden hollows of the Appalachian Mountains, author and barbecue enthusiast Wes Berry hit the trail in search of the best smoke, the best flavor, and the best pit masters he could find.
