Dear RL,

Thank you for submitting to Meat Up! There were many fine submissions this quarter. Your piece was not selected for inclusion, but we very much appreciate your work, and your interest in Meatpaper.

Best wishes,
The Editors The article in question: “Black Folks Food: The Art and Science of Soul Food Part 1: How to Smoke Country Style Pork Ribs” wherein I take the reader on a vividly imagined romp through the Deep South world of barbecue/soul food, is an important piece and one that I grudgingly shared. Its lack of inclusion is essentially a knife in the back. Check it out y’all.

Best Wishes,
RL Reeves Jr.
