Que & Stew of the Month (& Crappy Brit kitchens, too)
Sun, 08/18/13 7:51 PM
I told the ScreamingChicken that I was going to steal his Chicken of the Month idea and do the same thing with North Carolina barbecue. I was going to name the thread Pig of the Month, but didn't want to change my screen-name to ScreamingPig. The plan is to eat at one highly acclaimed NC barbecue restaurant each month and order the same items to compare: Barbecued Pork; Brunswick Stew; Cole Slaw; and Hush Puppies. For the restaurants, I started my list with the 23 pits that are on the NC Barbecue Society's Historic Barbecue Trail (Trail Map). I then added all the NC barbecue places with RoadFood reviews and also added all the barbecue restaurants I found at the Our State website (NC's glossy monthly travel magazine). The list is up to 46 restaurants, with many showing up in multiple places. However, only 5 restaurants are included in each of the 3 sources. Pie Diva is visiting this weekend and we have started our comparison of the food at some of the pits. Reports will begin to be posted very soon.
