The hands down,no doubt bout it- trust me on this- just drive to Ayden, NC & enjoy-you'll thank me later-best BBQ joint in the land is Pete Jones in Ayden, NC.
Classic Eastern NC BBQ, cooked over oak charcoal. Pete says " If it ain't oak, it ain't smoke"
Everything you need is on the menu - que, vinergary cole slaw, flat cornbread, Pepsi in the bottle. If you have room, Moonpies for desert.
The cash register is the classic 1962 Hav-A-Tampa cigar box.
Pete has traveled to the foreign land of Washington, DC to cook que at the Whitehouse for Pres Reagan.
Do yourself a favor & head to Ayden for the best que in the land. Just look for the glass block Capitol dome & get there early. Pete always sells out.
