Barbecue is a delicious food beloved by Americans, but there is much more to it than that. Barbecue Nation is an exhibition that explores how barbecue connects us to cultures around the world as well as traditions, history and the future.

The exhibition includes a wide array of artifacts, images, and oral histories from restaurants, festivals, community gatherings, and archives and museums from across the country. See historic photos and advertising images; menus and other artifacts from iconic barbecue joints; and vintage grills, including the 13-foot-long "Space Shuttle BBQ Pit" created by Houston-based Gator Pit of Texas.

Barbecue Nation continues through June 16, 2019, and is accompanied by a schedule of special programs, including a screening of the Southern Foodways Alliance film Valentina's Tex Mex BBQ with a barbecue panel discussion; cooking demonstrations and a talk by author-chef Michael W. Twitty on African and African-American food traditions in Southern barbecue, as part of the free Juneteenth event; and Hogtoberfest, a "whole hog" barbecue dinner.
