What is NCBBQ.COM?

Think of NCBBQ as the ultimate destination for learning about and sharing your knowledge on North Carolina Barbecue. In this state, it¡¯s not just a passion, it¡¯s a culture! When someone invites you to a barbecue in North Carolina, they¡¯re not talking about cooking burgers. You better be prepared to come hungry and enjoy a heaping plate of tender pork cooked to its?finest with all the fixins.

North Carolina is so passionate about its barbecue that there are even two different styles: Eastern North Carolina Barbecue and Western North Carolina Barbecue, with the line pretty much drawn at Raleigh. Generally, folks east of Raleigh (Eastern style) will cook the entire pig, chop it fine, and generously douse it with a vinegar-based sauce. On the other side of the state, barbecue means cooking meaty pork shoulders, chop it a little coarser, then serve it with a darker, sweeter tomato-based sauce.

Which is better? Well that¡¯s for you to decide. But just so you know, I¡¯m sure many of marriages have split up over their love of barbecue!
