Overview

In 1994, Bob Garner began doing short features about barbecue for UNC-TV’s statewide public-television magazine program, North Carolina Now.
In 1996, he published North Carolina Barbecue: Flavored by Time, taking readers on a delectable journey across the state in search of the best examples of this distinctive North Carolina delicacy. After Garner produced a one-hour television special based on his book, he quickly became known throughout North Carolina as “the barbecue man.”
In 2002, he published Bob Garner’s Guide to North Carolina Barbecue, which describes the 100 best barbecue restaurants from the mountains to the sea.
Now, both books are combined, updated, and expanded into one volume, creating the ultimate authoritative reference to every aspect of North Carolina barbecue. Bob Garner’s Book of Barbecue: North Carolina’s Favorite Food preserves the heritage and tradition of a disappearing rural lifestyle while showing how barbecue continues to evolve. Packed full of recipes for barbecue and popular side dishes (above and beyond the traditional hush puppies, slaw, and ’nana pudding); sidebars with useful tips, barbecue-related news, and features; and profiles of past and present influential pit masters and barbecue aficionados, this tome is the definitive guide to anything and everything pertaining to North Carolina’s favorite food.

Editorial Reviews

former four-term NC governor - Jim Hunt
"As a farm boy from Wilson County, I grew up knowing a little about barbecue. During my years as governor, I learned to be discreet about my barbecue preferences. But I will state two things unequivocally: North Carolina barbecue is the best in the world, and Bob Garner tells you everything you need to know about it."
New York Times best-selling author and aged-out North Carolina barbecue authority - Jerry Bledsoe
“If you love North Carolina barbecue, you need to keep a copy of this new treasure from Bob Garner in the glove compartment. That’s what I intend to do with mine. It makes me want to hit the road and try all of those alluring joints that I’ve missed.”
