"David Gelin has the ability to capture the true essence of these amazing people and their legendary old BBQ shrines with his camera. When he added the wonderful stories and recipes it became a great book. As a student and fan of these people and places, I'm particularly pleased to see them so well documented for history's sake." -Ray Lampe, aka Dr. BBQ

"Barbecue is as American as baseball, mom and apple pie. David introduces us to the heart and soul of the very real people serving up real barbecue, and sharing their passion for barbecue-America's cuisine."
-Carolyn Wells, Executive Director, Kansas City?Barbeque Society

"Gelin's work is not a celebration of barbecue alone-his work reaches much deeper.?His photography communicates the intimacy and passion shared by the people keeping these traditions vibrant and relevant. God bless these folks-they're the reason I keep a pair of elastic-waist pants in my closet."
-Saddler Taylor, Chief Curator of Folklife and Research McKissick Museum, University of South Carolina

Meet the Author

David Howard Gelin was born in New York and raised outside of Washington, D.C. Fate, college, and mild winters brought him to the South. Along with his aptly named Buddy, an animal rescue dog slated for that big doghouse in the sky, they are most at home on the open road. They hope to see you out there.

Read an Excerpt

Just fire and hickory, brick and Smoke. Don't spice up nothin,''

George Archibald Jr. tells me as he hoses down the coals. I'm sitting at the counter on one of the seven stools. On a nice day, you might want to eat outside. There are three picnic tables under the pines.
Otherwise, you're getting it to go.

George Sr. started selling barbecue in this small building behind his home back in 1961. George Jr. remembers mopping the floors for a quarter a day back then. George Jr. is joined behind the counter by his friend Arthur Wilkes. "We're a lot closer than brothers; we're friends," says George. "We're both Juniors, and our fathers were friends. We used to be built for speed, but now we're built for comfort."
