Hill country baby, Texas all the way. Pork ribs, potato salad, pecan pie, seriously the best meal I ever ate.

It's a matter of preference but I have to go with Texas. I was never a big fan of the pork and vinegar style that is popular in NC.

I've lived in Dallas and Charlotte. And I honestly had to vote for Texas.

Texas by a mile. First time I tried NC pulled pork, I spit it out. Nuff said.

I love both for different reasons. Texas and the Carolinas along with Memphis and Kansas City are definitely the hubs of truly outstanding BBQ.

North Carolina all the way, especially eastern NC. The vinegar-based pulled pork makes the plain Bodacious etc stuff in eastern Texas look like a joke. Also unlike NC you can't get brunswick stew, hush puppies or corn sticks as a side, those all make GREAT sides. I will admit, though, pinto beans also make a great side.

I'm probably biased because I grew up on eastern NC barbecue, but so be it. So much so, when I visited NC in March I bought some Well's vinegar-based barbeque sauce back with me so that the stuff around here could be tolerable again. Prior to that I hadn't set foot in a barbecue place in at least 4 years because it had so turned me off.

Both are great...and different. The best BBQ in TX is equally as delicious as the best BBQ in NC.
