North Carolina's Best Barbecue

Posted Updated

We’ll begin our Best of Carolina Project by taking nominations for Best Barbecue. I would like to split the competition into two categories: Best Downeast Barbecue and Best Western or Lexington Style Barbecue. Those restaurants getting the most nominations will make our Best of Carolina Barbecue Poll. We will accept nominations through Tuesday, August 5 on this blog and then put up the poll the following day.  Your votes on that poll will determine the winners in the two categories. 

When you make your nomination on this blog feel free to explain why you think your restaurant is deserving of the top honor.

Personally, I love it all – east and west. As long as it’s cooked long and right. North Carolina is “The Cradle of Cue” but who makes the best?

You decide.
