Good Day Atlanta viewer information story April 30, 2018

Delicious exhibit explores the taste & traditions of barbecue:  Few things define the taste of the South more than barbecue  but how did the much-loved style of cooking develop and why is it so popular here in Georgia?  Well, if you're curious about the background of barbecue, a new exhibit at the Atlanta History Center has all the delicious details. Barbecue Nation is the newest exhibit at the Atlanta History Center, opened in celebration of National Barbecue Month in May.  The exhibit breaks down several aspects of barbecue culture, from the history of the cooking style to the way it's done around the world.  Special features include a selection of vintage grills (including a turquoise-trimmed GE Partio Cart owned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower!), original advertising and cookbooks, and a section exploring the way barbecue has affected pop culture and daily life.  Several special events will take place in conjunction with Barbecue Nation, including cooking demos, chef talks, and film screenings.   The Atlanta History Center is located at 130 West Paces Ferry Road NW in Atlanta, and is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays from Noon to 5:30 p.m.  Tickets to the Atlanta History Center are all-inclusive and cost $21.50 for adults, $18.00 for seniors and students, and $9.00 for kids ages four to 12. Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken never misses a chance to talk about barbecue, so he spent the morning at the Atlanta History Center exploring Barbecue Nation.
