Whole Hog, A Film by Joe York

My friend Jonathan called my attention to a wonderful documentary on barbecue culture in Tennessee, available (here) on the website for the Southern Foodways Alliance. The forty-minute-long film by Joe York focuses on Ricky Parker, the pit master at B.E. Scott's Bar-B-Que in Lexington, Tennessee. Well worth a watch if you have the time.

While on the Southern Foodways Alliance site, also check out their publications, including the excellent Cornbread Nation books of southern food writing, and recipes, such as this one for pork stuffed pork chops. If you are interested in the food and culture of the American South, whether you are a southerner or not, you should join the SFA.
