North Carolina People, Places, and Things-July 15
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. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.
It is not uncommon to see restaurant reviews about North Carolina when it comes to Barbecue. A Google search for North Carolina Barbecue generated 669,000 items for me.
What I don’t see often is a list of North Carolina best hot dog places. I paid attention to this list for two reasons. One my youngest son attends East Carolina University and likes a hot dog joint called Sup Dogs located in Greenville NC.
The second reason is I have a friend from Lumberton named John Rancke that promotes himself as a connoisseur of hamburger and hot dog joints. When I travel I often get leads on places to eat from John. He is always spot on.

John can best be described as the Fodor’s Food Guide on Hamburger and Hot Dog Joints located in the Carolinas.
Earlier this summer John was looking for the list in Our State Magazine about North Carolina top Hot Dog joints. My hunch he can do a personal review on all of them. A link to the article is below:
A couple of North Carolina tidbits for me
