Happy New Year (and some old news)

Egads, the new year is nearly upon us! Thanks for reading this blog in 2010 and I hope to see your smiling face IP address back here again in 2011.

As my year end gift to you, instead of rambling on about who knows what I am simply going to link to someone else’s writing. A few months ago the Chicago Tribune’s food blog featured a great series of posts on barbecue, including several stories set in North Carolina, so check out the summary of the NC portion of the trip here.

Have a terrific New Year’s Eve and a prosperous and healthy 2011. In other words, may the new year be filled with as many plates of barbecue as your heart desires and as few trips to the cardiologist as your heart allows.
