Cast your vote for King of Cue – Western Style

Posted August 12, 2008 12:03 p.m. EDT

Congratulations to Hog Heaven of Durham for winning the WRAL poll for King of the Cue Down East Barbecue. Hog Heaven edged Parker’s for the title. Chapel Hill’s Barbecue Joint came in third in a robust round of balloting. The official voting ended Friday. Thanks to all of you for participating and expressing your passion for barbecue.

Now it is time to turn our attention to barbecue restaurants that add a touch of tomato to their sauces. It’s called Lexington-style or Western Barbecue. Who is the Best of the West? Lexington is well represented in this poll and could very well produce the winner. Please vote for the Best of the West BBQ. We will keep this survey going until Thursday at 9:00AM. I doubt we will get the volume we received in the down east balloting but you never know!

Belly up to the barbecue battleground and cast your ballot here.
