I hope this is the right forum for this kind of question - otherwise let me know.
I come from a corner of the world (Scandinavia) where the knowledge of real barbecue is rather limited and for the same reason I have for a very long time wanted to teach my fellow countrymen the difference between grilling and barbecuing and the history and traditions of especially beautiflly slow roasted southern pork.
It is not meant as a cook book, but more like a collection of histories, stories and personal experiences related to this way of cooking. Whether it's going to be released as a book or possibly some kind of online resource is still unknown.
However, I am planning to travel around the south this August (Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama) on kind of an educational journey and to eat as much greasy, different and regional BBQ as possible. In relation to that I was hoping some of you had I few tips to must-visit places and events and possibly knowledge about BBQ places of more historical interest. Is it by the way correct that there exists no real BBQ museum?
Hope to hear from you
