If Alton Brown has become the "Elvis" of the American road food scene with his flashy motorcycle show on Food T.V., then these guys are the original Delta bluesmen keeping it real in the "Living Legend." Once you've read this you'll see how Brown stole the good stuff out from under Elie and Stewart and know where he went terribly wrong with his own ideas. Elie's writing is enchanting, fluid, and slyly comical, and Stewart's photos provide a wonderful conterpoint that works with the text on many different levels (starting with the fact that they're in "black and white"). It's a poignant look at the state of American barbecue at the end of the 20th century, but it's more than that. Barbecue provides the authors a lens through which to view many aspects of modern American life - community, race relations, history, and music to name a few. If I had one wish for this book it's that Elie would use it as the basis for a screenplay. There's a classic "buddy/road trip" movie in here that would be a joy to see on the screen.
