The Food Guy: Barbecue a Staple in Bronzeville

NBC Universal, Inc.

Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood, the birthplace of Black History Month, is known for its unique style of barbecue.

Unlike Texas brisket and Carolina pork, with their slow, gentle smoking, Bronzeville is all about cooking hot links and rip tips directly over the heat - constantly taming the flames with a hose.

Such cuisine is available at Honey 1 BBQ, one of the area's notable barbecue spots.

Here's where you can go:
