Barbecue Mysteries

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. I'll be posting a Memorial Day Crime Fiction list, but in the meantime, I thought I'd update my Barbecue Mysteries list. Let me know any titles I've missed, and I'll add them.

So many ways one can murder someone at a barbecue, from the sauce to the skewers to the grill. Here's a short list of Barbecue Mysteries. Let me know if I've forgotten any!

Elizabeth Craig Spann has a Memphis BBQ series (I've forgotten the title at the moment). I've read the first one and not sure how many more in the series are out. They could be added to the list. E :)

just a correction on her info- she has 3 in tHE BBQ series out and she writes that series under Riley Adams and her name is actually Elizabeth Spann Craig (I seem to always want to mix the two last names up for some odd reason). The fourth in the series will be coming out in a couple of months. E :)

What a delicious and timely list. I've heard of a couple of the authors and have read one of the books. Thanks for sharing this list.

Memphis Ribs by Gerald Duff has a murder related to an international barbecue contest. I read it quite a few years ago and remember little about it.
