The national spotlight will be on Barnesville soon as the smell of hickory smoke starts to work its way through town. The stars and crew of the TV reality show BBQ Pitmasters will soon find out what we already know – Barnesville is a great example of what small town USA is all about.
The Barnesville BBQ and Blues Festival is in its ninth year of showcasing some of the best barbecue and music in the Southeast. So much so that several months ago we were contacted by Discovery Channel’s producers of BBQ Pitmasters to bring the filming of a one hour episode here to Barnesville, only one of 10 episodes to be filmed for season four of the show.
