Barbeque Bonanza

bbqI’m a guy, so that means three things:
I like to grill.
I like to eat.
I cry at the end of “Field of Dreams.”

I also like to travel and I am fortunate that my work sometimes takes me to locations outside of my comfort zone and sphere of culinary knowledge.

Top destinations for the type of food I like to eat as I’m coming off the road and calling it a day are in the South, where I can smell the barbeque from miles away. Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia…they are the real deal when it comes to pulled pork, hot sauce and racks of ribs. But hey, I live in New Jersey. WhatdoIgottado?
