I didn’t set out to create a BBQ soup when I pulled out the big kettle.  It wasn’t even a concept.  But after the soup I WAS making turned out a little dull, I decided to punch it up. I called the resulting mix Iowa BBQ Soup—because, well, this summer I ate a lot of Iowa BBQ.

It all happened in July when my husband and I took a trip to Iowa for the American Cheese Society conference.  Everywhere we went the menu had a local feel—lots of BBQ, pork and corn.  Perfect summer fare!

My husband (the carnivore) was pretty excited that this (formerly vegan) soup now had meat.   I was ecstatic to have rescued a recipe in my first try!  And happy to have a good excuse for one last taste of summer!
