HOOVER, Ala. - Sept. 18, 2017 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for An Irresistible History of Alabama Barbecue: From Wood Pit to White Sauce

Local author Mark A. Johnson will be available to sign copies of book


From Muscle Shoals to Mobile, Alabamians enjoy fabulous barbecue at home, at club meetings and at countless eateries. In the 1820s, however, a group of reformers wanted to eliminate the southern staple because politicians used it to entice voters. As the state and nation changed through wars and the civil rights movement, so did Alabama barbecue. Alabama restaurants like Big Bob Gibson's, Dreamland and Jim 'n Nick's have earned fans across the country. Mark A. Johnson traces the development of the state's famous food from the earliest settlement of the state to the rise of barbecue restaurants.
