Announcing the Arkansas Leg of Our Southern BBQ Trail

The Southern BBQ Trail documents the history, tradition, and culture of barbecue across our region. We are pleased to announce the addition of new oral histories that help to tell the story of barbecue in Arkansas.

Visit the Arkansas leg of the Trail to learn more about iconic barbecue joints like Craig's and McClard's, as well as some lesser-known halls of smoke and sauce.

Many thanks to SFA oral history intern Rachel Reynolds Luster for helping us collect the stories behind the food and to Rex Nelson for his fine introduction to the curious history of Arkansas 'cue.

Grab a napkin and go!
