My apologies. There are only 2 traditional style bbq sauces in NC, eastern and western (or Lexington) style. Both are vinegar-based. Anything thick and sweet is not traditional to NC, even if if someone has placed some sort of nomenclature on it reflecting NC.

Cheers. Thank you for explaining it to me.

What Edward said is correct. There are many many resources on the subject besides City-Data. Best place to start is John Shelton Reed's book. But if you prefer an online reference, check out https://www.ourstate.com/nc-barbecue-styles/

Yes, wondering how much this is all going to cost?

Call some of the previously mentioned places for prices.
Thank you for asking! We want someone ELSE to cook the pig! I have no experience doing this. And just for additional info, its mid-May, and we have rented a pavillion.

How many people? You'll need at least 30 or so. Do you want someone to provide the pig, sides, dessert, plates, utensils, etc.? Cost will be around $10 to $15 per person.

The previously mentioned Ole Time BBQ will do it for $9.95 per person, plus extra sides, dessert, etc., with a 50 person minimum:

No. A guy in my ‘hood does it. Brings the smoker or whatever it is to the pool the day before and gets to it. It’s a huge ordeal. Also there’s a bar set up with home brews. It’s pretty fun just haven’t had a chance to go the last few years. I’m guessing the HOA reimburses him but they don’t run it per se.

Thank you, that sounds like an ordeal. All this info is helping me think through what is involved. I forgot to mention it will be a minimum of 50 people maybe more like 75. I know it will be a minimum of $10 per person, and we hope to cater all of it. We aren't rich, but we do have three kids graduating from various places all at the same time. Seems worth it this time so we don't have the work on top of it.

if this is a "graduation thing"...book early.
that is a busy time (Mother's Day, too).
for example: we have a February "thing"
which we will book next month.
