Spooney's Bar-Be-Que in Greenwood, MS
by Amy Evans Streeter for the SFA's Southern BBQ Trail
A new barbecue exhibit opens at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum (SoFAB) in New Orleans this weekend: "Barbecue Nation". From the SoFAB website:
"Barbecue Nation" examines one of the South’s favorite pastimes in all of its glory. From the backyard barbecue pit to the competition circuit, Barbecue Nation gives us a glimpse at the many faces of this southern artform. Visitors will learn about the many regional variations, the fast-growing sport of competition barbecue and the continuation of a White House barbecue tradition. Refreshments, including barbecue from Squeal Bar-B-Q, will be available.
The SFA shared a handful of photographs that will be included in the exhibit.
Barbecue Nation open this Friday, April 15, from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Visit the SoFAB website for more info.
