The sweet scent of hickory greets me floating within a cloud of Robert Johnson’s sultry mellow riffs, playing his blues away. I know this sound; I know this smell; and I recognize those bricks at the corner of 4th and Walnut. I’m in downtown Rogers sitting with my feet up at Pop’s Hog Wild BBQ. This popular you-can’t-miss-it red food truck serves as the gateway to the culinary scene that is becoming historic downtown Rogers, Arkansas. What could be more apropos? Barbeque always has been the starting point and reliable friend we can count on in our Ozark food heritage.
