ON THE BBQ TRAIL: NORTH CAROLINA

Amy Evans is on the Southern BBQ Trail again. This time, she's gathering the stories of North Carolina 'cue. On Tuesday, she visited with Wayne Monk at Lexington BBQ, learning a few of the secrets to his shoulders. Yesterday she visited with Ed Mitchell in Wilson and Wilbur Shirley of Wilbur's in Goldsboro, listening to their tales of wood, smoke, and sauce. And, of course, whole hogs.

Look for their oral histories to appear on the Southern BBQ Trail later this fall.
