The Southern BBQ Trail documents the history, tradition, and culture of barbecue across our region. We are pleased to announce the addition of new oral histories that help to tell the story of barbecue in North Carolina.
Visit the North Carolina leg of the Trail to learn more about iconic barbecue joints like Skylight Inn and Parker's, as well as some lesser-known halls of smoke and sauce.
Many thanks to Rein Fertel and Denny Culbert for helping us collect the stories behind the food and to John Shelton Reed for his fine introduction to the long history of North Carolina 'cue.
Grab a napkin and go!
