Holy Smoke: The Big Book of North Carolina Barbecue by John Shelton Reed

Notable On NOBLE by NCLBPH

Holy Smoke is a passionate exploration of North America's longest barbecue tradition. Authoritative, spirited, and opinionated (in the best way), a passionate exploration of the lore, recipes, traditions, and people who have helped shape North Carolina's signature slow-food dish. Here is a clip of this notable work.

New Books in History

John Shelton Reed, William Rand Kenan Jr. Professor of sociology (emeritus) at the University of North Carolina, has been observing the South for decades. This week he and Al Zambone talk about New Orleans in the 1920s, the subject of his book Dixie Bohemia: A French Quarter Circle in the 1920s (LSU Press, 2012).In the years following World War I, the New Orleans French Quarter attracted artists and writers with its low rents, faded charm, and colorful street life. By the 1920s Jackson Square had become the center of a vibrant if short-lived bohemia. A young William Faulkner and his roommate William Spratling, an artist who taught at Tulane University, resided among the "artful and crafty ones of the French Quarter." In Dixie Bohemia John Shelton Reed introduces Faulkner's circle of friends -- ranging from the distinguished Sherwood Anderson to a gender-bending Mardi Gras costume designer -- and brings to life the people and places of New Orleans in the Jazz Age.Al Zambone is a historian and the host of the podcast Historically Thinking.

DG Martin interviews John Shelton Reed - Minding the SouthFor more than thirty years John Shelton Reed has been "minding" the South—watching over it, providing commentary upon it. He is the author or editor of thirteen books about the South, and Reed has read widely and in depth about the South. His primary focus is upon Southerners' present-day culture and consciousness, but he knows that one must approach the South historically in order to understand the place and its people. Reed celebrates the South with a discussion of his latest book Minding the South on North Carolina Bookwatch. In this special episode, the Chapel Hill resident shares his wit, wisdom and Southern charm, never afraid to speak his mind, even when it comes to taking his beloved South to task and reveals how he has become known as one of the best "South watchers" there is.
