Over the Christmas holiday, we were traveling through eastern N.C. and found ourselves in Goldsboro, home of the famous Wilburs BBQ out on Hwy 70. It had been years since I had visited Wilburs, so you can imagine how ready I was to taste that down home food. The atmosphere was the same as I rember it some 15 years ago. The event started out with some of the best sweet tea in the south (and believe me, I have had my share over the years). Hush puppies were next, I do believe Wilburs has the best hushpuppies I have ever tasted. They are "lighter" tasting than most hush puppies I have experienced. The BBQ arrived (pork of course, and vinegar based, traditional eastern NC style). It was delicious and full of flavor. The sides (slaw and brunswick stew) were also really good. I also had an opportunity to meet Wilber himself (Wilbur Shirley) who has been cooking BBQ right there since 1963. He is a fantastic guy, and always makes time for the customer. We were enjoying the meal so much, we forgot to save room for desert, so I can't comment on that. As we were leaving, a HUGE truck pulled up and delivered a MASSIVE load of wood to the smokehouse located directly behind the restaurant. Several years ago I asked Wilbur how many pigs he served up in a typical day. His response was "about 30" which astonished me. That's a lot of Q! For those interested, Wilbur's is located on Hwy 70 east, about 4 miles east of Goldsboro on the right hand side. Enjoy!!
