Where there’s smoke, there’s opportunity to bring barbecue history into classroom

Third graders at Westwood View Elementary in Westwood are the most barbecue-savvy third graders in Chow Town today. On a good day, suburban prairie winds treat their nostrils to the aroma of hardwood smoke from meat fires at Oklahoma Joe’s on 47th Avenue and Mission Road. Teachers Rebecca Blizzard and Jana Winkelbauer make sure their students do more than smell the barbecue.
