I stumbled across this documentary about Lexington, TN Whole Hog BBQ. It really captures the way true Pitmasters create BBQ perfection.
I was raised on this style of BBQ, and it’s how everyone in that part of the country does it. I remember my first taste of Real Pit BBQ, and today it’s the biggest influence in my cooking.
My people have been raising, slaughtering, and smoking Hogs this way ever since this part of the country was settled. You want to know why I cook BBQ…It’s because I strive to preserve the true essence of BBQ.
It’s what I was raised on and how Real BBQ is meant to be cooked. Watch this documentary, and you’ll see the sweat, hard work, and love that goes into producing BBQ the old fashioned way.
I’m often asked “What is your favorite thing to cook?” It’s simple…Whole Hog the way my Papaw did it!
Thank you Joe York for making this documentary!
