Brainfart Press has just released its latest book, Pig Palaces & Brisket Barns: A Guide to the Best Barbecue Joints in America (That We Made Up) in print, PDF, and Kindle format.
You may know all the famous barbecue joints of Kansas City and Memphis, but have you ever visited Amoral Abattoir? Pork By the Pound? UnderArby’s? Have you ever sampled the decadent delicacy known as the Bar-B-Cone? No, you haven’t, because technically they don’t exist; but no matter, because this guidebook will tell you everything you need to know about them, and other absurd, esoteric, and idiosyncratic barbecue joints across this great nation. Steve Johnson (Obscure Early Bluesmen Who Never Existed, So You’ve Decided To Run a Role-Playing Game) and Leighton Connor (The Rosamund Trap, The Flaxman’s Anomaly) have joined forces to lovingly craft this travelogue of imaginary barbecue joints that is frequently hilarious, usually dumb, and always entertaining.
