Smokestack Lightning: A Day in the Life of Barbeque

Thursday, July 5, 7:00pm

A history of barbecue includes culinary traditions (from rural beginnings to present-day innovations), role in American culture and representation in restaurants. Filmed in Texas, Memphis, Kansas City, North and South Carolina.

It is a film based from the information of a book bearing the same name.


I am recording it on DVR now... Very cool

Hope you can check it out
I watched it. Ollie Gates isn't the best representative for KC BBQ (though I like Gates Q now and then). I was glad to see Earl Quick though. Man! NOTHING beats a Quick's BBQ sausage sammie! If you are in KC you should visit Quick's. Little place, NOT fancy! Not a swanky neighborhood. Just good Q.
Can't say as I was too interested in the cow heads cooked in the pit down south. (You had to see the program)
best rest. i ever ate @ in my life was this authentic (i think it was called mom's diner)diner- complete w/ the table top jukes down in the fish dist. of philly- i ordered veal parm.- it was a heaping 9x13 pan (for $5.99) real veal about 3lbs of cheese & mom ( a sicilian woman) everything done home style & she crossed her hamhock arms & made damn sure i ate every bite then curled her stash & asked if i wanted cannoli fer dessert.- i didn't say no. any philly friends here know the place ? moriarity's is great too.
