North Carolina BBQ Society Historical BBQ Trail Sun, 08/29/10 4:38 AM (permalink)
While doing some BBQ research, I stumbled on this web site and the NC BBQ Historical Trail. If you're in the area, you might want to check it out.

      Foodbme, Amy & I have almost finished the Trail (7 of the 25-26 left to go) and will be posting our findings in late fall.  We spent a day with Jim Early, author and president of the NCBBQ Society, and we'll also have a profile on him.  He singlehandedly reviewed 220 BBQ joints across the state in preparing his book, The Best Tar Heel Barbecue: From Manteo to Murphy.  I want to be him when I grow up!    Chris

        There is specific criteria and approval is needed from the Board of Directors of the NCBBQS to be included on the Trail. Read this and if your places meet the criteria they should apply to the NCBBQS to be put on the list.

          220 BBQ Joints! That's alota Que! Don't think any other state can claim that many except maybe Texas. They claim to be the biggest everything!
          Jim Early must travel with his own personal Cardiologist!

            Yeah.  The criteria they use for inclusion are pretty solid.  I've eaten at all of the eastern style places on the list except for Stephenson's, and they are all excellent.  I can only think of one barbecue place in eastern NC- Blackbeard's in Conetoe- that ought to be on the list and isn't- excluded in this case because it hasn't been in business for 15 years.

                I know that it has been awhile since it was originally posted, but dont forget about Hog Heaven in N. Durham      ( one in Durham and one in Roxboro), and Bullocks BBQ Downtown Durham. I have been to Hog Heavan, it good, but I havent been to Bullocks.

                  It may be a little far for you to go for lunch but near my town (Elkhart, In)I can go to a local mexican restaurant call Carneciera San Jose and get 3 authentic tacos for $1 each w/complimentary chips and salsa and a glass of ice water I am full and out of there for $4.25 including tax & tip.  They make fantastic grilled fish tacos, beef, pork and some of the more exotic stuff I am not interested in.  I would bet if you look you can find a similar place in your area.  The $1 tacos is only on Tuesday, the rest of the week the go up to a shocking  $1.79 each.

                    Sorry somehow got on the wrong forum.  This post was supposed to be for the under $5 lunch forum not the BBQ forum, oops!
