The Best BBQ You've Never Heard Of

You don't need a degree in smokeology to name the big three of barbecue: Kansas City ribs, Carolina pulled pork, and Texas smoked brisket. But what about some of the lesser-known styles of regional American barbecue? Like Cornell chicken, created by a Cornell University poultry scientist and today served in upstate New York and just about nowhere else on the planet. Or a specialty of the city where I grew up - Baltimore pit beef-crusty on the outside, rare inside, with plenty of horseradish to pump up the heat. Or the sweet, smoky barbecued salmon enjoyed in Anchorage, Alaska. Today on "Project Fire:" the best barbecue you've never heard of.
