In the latest Eat Arkansas video, Gary Green, owner of Jacksonville’s The Bar-B-Que Shack, talks about what makes his restaurant special, including the unheralded importance of cumin in chili and a secret seasoning that a previous owner earned by working for its inventor for free for two weeks. Green is a character to say the least.
