On Saturday, October 7, Joseph R. Haynes, award-winning competition barbecue cook and author of "Virginia Barbecue: A History," and Craig Hartman, owner of “C’ville Weekly’s Best BBQ of 2017”-winner BBQ Exchange, team up for a delicious blend of culinary history and barbecue samplings. Haynes will talk about his book and take questions from noon-1 PM. There will be a reception from 1-2 PM and an opportunity to to taste barbecue samples with a variety of sauces, provided by BBQ Exchange.
A native Virginian, Joseph Haynes studied the art of barbecuing under the tutelage of some of the finest barbecue cooks in the United States. The world's largest organization of barbecue enthusiasts has certified him as a master barbecue judge. Haynes has always found himself returning to the Virginia-style barbecue that he has enjoyed since his youth. Often receiving invitations for interviews and lectures on the history of Virginia barbecue and Native American cookery (through his mother, he is a member of the Patawomeck Indian tribe of Virginia), he provides consultations to museums and other organizations in their efforts to host events that feature demonstrations and re-creations of historical Virginia barbecues.
Event will be held at the David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center. Free.
