Johnny Fugitt is on the road. A native Missourian, Fugitt has went all in; sold his house, accepted a life of homelessness and vagrancy and sallied forth into the heart of America in the search of the best barbecue.
It’s a trend.
Barbecue has never been hotter. In the past few years we’ve seen neophytes of all descriptions and walks of life hoist themselves onto the turnip truck and start blogging, pinning and tweeting about their new discoveries.
But Johnny Fugitt may be onto something. Americans love a list. A ranking. An order of importance that can lend structure to something they’re attempting to grasp. Perhaps Fugitt can provide that.
In the meantime, Fugitt is currently in Austin and blogging about his visits to Franklin, County Line, Blue Ox et al.
