Well, to start with.... the entire subject of Barbeque is ENTIRELY subjective.... and everybody is an expert..... and we all have one!

My tastebuds first collided with Barbeque in North Carolina, and pulled pork with a vinegar/peeper sauce is my bottom line....

Open for a few months, have been there several times, and visions of Allen’s on the Hillsborough Road danced in my head, but without the dusty stuffed pheasants on the walls.....

The pork was nice and smokey, and with the right amount of moisture. The Cole Slaw was crisp and nippy, and with the vinegar sauce the sandwich was a serenade....

The Boss has had both the ribs, and brisket.... I could not bother, but last week I did dane to try some of her smoked chicken and pronounced it “very good,” before I got back to inflicting justice on my pig sandwich.....

There is also a sticky Memphis style sauce which other have praised, but of course, I didn’t bother....

Maybe after I finally get my fill of quality pig after such a long absence, I may get a little diverse, but for the moment no need to..... (talk to me later)

I wish the proprietors success... they are good folks with a good product, and YOU could also help toward this end....
