National Public Radio has posted an article on their web site written by Jason Sheehan, a journalist for Westward, a Denver newspaper. I often listen to All Things Considered on NPR during my commute home from work. I don't often visit the NPR web site, but there are several bbq articles in the This I Believe section of the site.
