One of them being “Follow the Smoke: 14,783 Miles of Great Texas Barbecue,” this book reflects the total distance he drove to eat in 119 different places. He is a constant contributor to Houston and Prime Living magazines, as well as to his own Houston Arts week. He also writes for United Airlines’ Hemispheres magazine. His article in Hemispheres about the heartbreak of seeing his hometown after Hurricane Katrina won that year’s Lowell Thomas Award for “cultural travel writing.” John insists he doesn’t know much about any other kind.
