If you live in New York City and enjoy quality barbecue, you owe Elizabeth Karmel a debt of gratitude. Her work as the executive chef at trailblazing Hill Country Barbecue Market helped herald today’s Big Apple fascination with brisket, but recently she’s proved that she’s more than just a one-meat pony with her new business specializing in mail-order whole hog via CarolinaCueToGo.com. Her meaty opinions also appear in the bi-weekly Associated Press column “The American Table,” and you can get to know her sweeter side through the forthcoming cookbook Steak and Cake.
