Join host AJ Johnson as he makes his way around Alabama checking out some of the state’s best eateries — from hole-in-the-wall joints that locals love, to world-famous 5-star restaurants that make food critics’ mouths water.

Today, AJ is in the Edgewood neighborhood of Homewood, Ala., at Saw’s barbecue.

“This is what you call a ‘true barbecue joint,’” said AJ. “Look at me, I’m sweating because, you want to talk about an authentic smokehouse? Look at all this!”

Ms. A, the manager of Saw’s Homewood location, explains the process they go through to crank out some of the best barbecue in an area known around the country for its skills on the smoker and grill.
