8 photos of local BBQ you have to see to believe

The latest food trend in Columbus seemed to sneak up on us. a subtle waft from the South that got stronger through the end of fall, and by winter, had gone hog wild.

We’re talking about barbecue people. Hot, saucy, juicy smoked meat. The kind that makes your mouth water just thinking about it and once devoured, puts a thick layer of coarse hair on your chest.

The photos we are about to show you are not for the faint of heart. They are shocking, they are sexy, and yes—they were all shot right here in Columbus.

Grab your slobber cloths, folks, you’re going to need ’em.
