SCOUTING FOR THE MISSISSIPPI LEG OF THE SOUTHERN BBQ TRAIL


BEASLEY'S BEST BAR-B-Q - MERIDIAN, MS from Southern Foodways on Vimeo.

Meghan Leonard, SFA intern and Southern Studies graduate student, has been traveling Mississippi's highways and byways this summer in search of barbecue. She's generated quite a list so far, and has completed a handful of oral history interviews for the Mississippi leg of our Southern BBQ Trail. This short slideshow of Beasley's Best Bar-B-Q in Meridian is one of the places she discovered on her travels.


Look for Meghan's interviews to appear on the BBQ Trail by summer's end.
