If you're looking for a book to read, what could be better than a barbecue novel? Memphis Ribs is a full-fledged mystery novel with police detectives, murder, and bbq. Sounds very interesting.
I started working on a novel about bbq a few years ago. I've written 19,200 words, but at this point I'm not sure if I'll ever pick it back up and finish the story. Here's the main thesis of the story:
With his import company losing money, an Orlando businessman embarks on a quest to capitalize on the rising popularity of competitive barbecue contests and turn them into America’s new favorite past-time. A chance meeting with a backwoods Georgia redneck threatens to ruin everything he’s worked for.
