I'm in central North Carolina so I'm lucky to have some of the best BBQ joints on the planet surrounding me. I enjoy both eastern and western Carolina style (as well as just about any other style for that matter!) pork BBQ. When I am going to the beach, I visit Wilber's in Goldsboro, NC. Terrific eastern style pork and kind folks. When I am on my way to Panthers games in Charlotte, rather than do much tailgating, I swing by Lexington BBQ in Lexington NC where they have an awesome western NC style pork BBQ sandwhich and their sides are great. Probably my favorite hush puppies there.
