North Carolina-Barbecue Trail-April 1

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-April 1

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

On Wednesday night I watched a few episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. This reality TV show is hosted by Guy Fiere and appears on the Food Channel.

Almost all the establishments he featured in one episode included barbeque including a place called the Pies and Thighs in Brooklyn NY.

As I watched the show I began to wonder how many good barbeque places we have in North Carolina. I know I have been to my share but no way have I visited all of them. I was not surprised that on the web there is a Historical North Carolina Barbeque Trail.

Be curious if any of my followers have thoughts on the places included on the trail. Foodies like Khary McGhee, Gary Aycock, and Jeff Neelon want to hear your reviews on places listed on the trail. No radio silence I know you have been to almost all of these joints.
