Autumn always makes me crave barbecue.
Maybe it’s the ember-colored foliage, the first whiffs of wood smoke from a neighbor’s chimney, or the crack of distant rifle-fire in the forest. Or maybe it’s just memories of a college pal’s annual family barbecue, where a whole hog was smoked to perfect tenderness and served with homemade coleslaw, french fries and hushpuppies.
