Hog Heaven BBQ (Durham, NC): is the pulled pork worth it?

mikeh | Apr 27, 2009 08:32 AM

I see a string of high praise for this place as the best BBQ in Durham, if not the Triangle (ha, like they could beat Allen & Son), but after three years of living here have never given it a try. Once went there for a shrimp burger and sides and both were pretty bad (sides seemed like they were from cans, batter on the shrimp not tasty at all).

Isn't the pork cooked over gas? If so, how can people claim it's the best around?

and in terms of gas-cooked Q, is it any better than Barbeque Joint in Chapel Hill (which has fantastic homemade-from-scratch sides and desserts)?
