A good friend shared this with me several years ago as part of a project she was doing with her High School AP students as a writing project.

This I Believe is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. Over 125,000 of these essays, written by people from all walks of life, have been archived here on our website, heard on public radio, chronicled through our books, and featured in weekly podcasts. The project is based on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow. (credit for this text to thisibelieve.org)

This specific piece is about the author's love of barbeque. It speaks to me as I share his passion for how barbeque is part of my upbringing and culture.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
