Bob Garners new barbecue book
North Carolina barbecue expert Bob Garner has a new book out: Bob Garners Book of Barbecue: North Carolinas Favorite Food.
The new book is a combination of Garners last two barbecue books but revised and expanded. There are profiles of 101 restaurants across the state, recipes and stories about the history of North Carolinas tradition to how President Obama ended up with one of Garners books.
Garner, who travels the state eating for UNC-TVs North Carolina Weekend, will be signing copies of his book at several upcoming events:
• 6 p.m. Tuesday, The Pit restaurant in Raleigh.
• 6 p.m. Thursday, McIntyres Books in Fearrington Village near Pittsboro.
• 5 p.m. Friday, Got to Be N.C. Festival at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh.
• Noon Saturday at A Southern Season in Chapel Hill.
