Ep. 5: What Does Barbecue Have To Do With Race, Violence, Or Medicine?

Having a neighbor like Daniel Vaugh - BBQ editor for the Texas Monthly Magazine - I could not pass up the opportunity to do an episode on Texas BBQ. But what does that have to do with Race, Violence, or Medicine? More than you think.

  • Have you heard of the Negro Motorist Green Book?
  • Do you know the story behind the oldest black-owned BBQ joint in Dallas, TX? 
  • And how did the confluence of white and black immigrants lead to the rise of commercial BBQ in Texas?

Daniel Vaughn - a journalist, food critic, and historian - takes us on a cross-country journey to answer these questions and more while sharing engaging tales about the intersection of race and barbecue.
