The wonderful world of barbecue in South Mississippi

By David Elliott - bio | email

LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) - We arrived at the Welch place in Long Beach, Mississippi and were overwhelmed by a delicious aroma. Smoke filled the air around a cooker where Terry Welch was working on some ribs and other delights.

Welch is a professional griller, traveling America competing in sanctioned events.

"The rub on this chicken has won several first place awards," Welch said.

Terry and his wife Janet publish a national magazine called BBQ World. Inside, you'll find information on products, an array of recipes and stories about barbecue competitions.

"We discovered that there was a great need for this kind of magazine," Welch said.

BBQ World is available at several barbecue places in South Mississippi. For more information about the magazine or details on how to subscribe, visit
