A little electrocution: Smoke power
This tune from the Cleveland pop guru, Bill Fox, manages to capture the melancholy I tend to feel like so many of his songs are capable of doing.
I haven't mentioned the power of smoke and bbq to transform the spirit recently. But the mere smell of a clean hickory fire with the faint whiff of spice and meat causes an actual physical response in the hungry. The mouth waters, the senses heighten, the need for action is transmitted through the spinal column from the brain. There've been studies.
I haven found it within myself to be able to preach the truth about the 'que in the longest of times, but I tell you I am a believer. I have seen bbq redeem lives, give second chances, create and destroy legends. There is destruction in the past, but with destruction always comes the possibility of hope.
I give you Ricky and Zach Parker of Scott's-Parker's Barbecue, Lexington, TN.
