WKU Professor is putting Kentucky's Barbecue on the map with his new book

English Professor Wes Berry traveled across Kentucky to research, and enjoy, the Bluegrass State's barbecue. He brought the best of the barbecue together in The Kentucky Barbecue Book.

Berry traveled from the banks of the Mississippi to the Appalachian Mountains. He searched for the best smoke, the best flavors and the best pit-masters he could find. His new book highlights the most succulent menus and colorful personalities in Kentucky.
