Smoke & Salt 2018 issue

SS2018-for archive

Smoke & Salt 2018, our guide to seriously good barbecue and oysters, features Virginia Living’s Best BBQ and Best Oyster Awards—a carefully curated roundup of hundreds of the state’s best barbecue joints and food trucks, oyster producers and retailers, oyster bars and more selected by our editors and a panel of industry experts. Smoke & Salt also includes everything from the best wine and beer pairings for Virginia ’cue to how to spend an oyster-centric 48 hours in the Northern Neck. We meet VCU’s Todd Janeski, who has collected hundreds of thousands of oyster shells from restaurants and retailers for replanting in the Chesapeake Bay to help bolster oyster populations, and Craig Hartman, owner of BBQ Exchange in Gordonsville, who has become a go-to for anyone looking to throw a top-notch pig pickin’. Our issue also includes recipes that put a new spin on the classic oyster roast. Pick up a copy of the Smoke & Salt 2018 issue today!
