Who doesn’t love a good road trip through Kentucky? Cruising the scenic by-ways, taking in some bluegrass history, dreaming of the next break for food. Planning the venture is half the fun. This summer, why not borrow some ideas from Wes Berry? He’s been all over the state, stopping in every mom-and-pop barbecue place he could find. Grab a copy of his latest, The Kentucky Barbecue Book, and take it along with you as you sample some of the best eats that Kentucky has to offer.
