In case you've been living under a rock, the New Orleans barbecue scene is booming. It wasn't so long ago that the closest thing to barbecue found in local restaurants was barbecue shrimp— so not the same thing— but these days, the Big Easy features more than its fair share of smokin' hot pitmasters doing the dang thing.
