Horace Archie tends to the smoker at New Zion Church Bar-B-Q,
aka the Church of Holy Smoke, in Huntsville, TX.
As part of our ongoing collaboration with Elizabeth Engelhardt and the University of Texas at Austin's American Studies program, a group of graduate students has collected twenty new oral history interviews that document Texas barbecue. Visit our Southern BBQ Trail project to learn more about 'cue in the Lone Star State.
The group has also put together a book on the subject, Republic of Barbecue: Stories Beyond the Brisket, which will be available this fall.
Next up on the Southern BBQ Trail: stories from Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
