Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue is now available for pre-order for $30 plus tax. The expected publication date is April 12, 2021. Your book(s) will ship soon after. You’ll get free shipping with your pre-order!

Black Smoke celebrates the significant contributions that African Americans have made to the American barbecue story. You’ll learn how African Americans honed and popularized a cuisine rooted in Native American culinary tradition, and became its most effective ambassadors. I profile fascinating barbecuers from the past two centuries, look at different aspects of African American barbecue culture, and opine about barbecue’s future. 

Thanks in advance for your support, and I hope that you enjoy Black Smoke.
