Garden & Gun - Oct/Nov 2011

Yes, when this publication first came out the name put me off. It has turned into a wonderful chronicle of the South.

This edition is especially worth seeking out - its all about food. Articles range from The 50 Best Southern Foods to Pork-a-Palooza! John T. Edge contributes.

Guaranteed to make you daydream of an all you can eat road trip!

  1. I follow this magazine online through Facebook. Good writing on interesting topics on all things Southern. I especially love their food and drink articles. They have a fun outlook.

    1. I started reading some of Garden & Gun before my epic trip to North Carolina last spring and have enjoyed it immensely.

        Did you try Smokey's BBQ in Morrisville? it is down the street from my house. I eat there every Friday. I did not know they had een featured until I was behind a very sweet old couple that mentioned they were there since they had seen the article in G&G. The look on their faces when presented with pulled pork sandwiches for the first time was priceless.

          Sorry to say that I did not make it to that spot. Please do post about it on the Southeast board if you haven't already.

      2. I think the name is intended as an attention getter. I remember picking up my first copy in the grocery store, chuckling and curious as to what this was all about.

        I like them too, though. The tone is very tuckahoe.

          Per usual, you've sent me to google to understand a term unfamiliar to me.

            I didn't know the term either, but thank you for making it easier on me Melanie!

            To Naco - I guess the name of the publication does indicate a target audience - people that can afford to garden and shoot. They do have very good food writing amongst their other loves.

              Now I'm waiting for Naco to tell us that the pronunciation rhymes with "Conetoe". :-)

                "people that can afford to garden and shoot.".....thats what is great about The South dont have to have money to either ;)


            In case anyone wants a peek.. I'm still getting through the articles.

                Excellent piece! Reading this, it is easy to see how it was that Southern literature inspired the Latin American magical realists. This has more than a dollop of the proverbial flying abuela.
