That's exactly how many times I tried it before I decided it wasn't good barbeque.

Sorry for the delay in reply, was out of town on business all week.


That may be (again, I am not claiming in anyway to be a NC BBQ expert)...

But someone should really pull Greg, Melanie and Devin to the side and tell them to stop presenting themselves as "NC BBQ".

It's pretty clear they think they represent, accurately, the "honoring the state’s best-known and much-cherished culinary tradition"

Eastern NC BBQ vs Western NC BBQ has 2 distinct differences.

1. Eastern NC BBQ sauce is vinegar based. Western NC BBQ sauce (aka Lexington sauce) is tomato based.

2. Eastern NC BBQ is predominantly whole hog. Western NC BBQ is predominantly pork shoulder.

Anyone that says the difference in BBQ or sauces is minute, doesn't truly know the difference.

Not true. Most Lexington-style bbq sauce recipes have a 6:1 vinegar to ketchup ratio. That means its vinegar based, not tomato based. The tomato is an accent, not the predominant component. Not to mention that ketchup has a lot of vinegar in it to begin with.

Also not true, as proven above. Those who proclaim a huge difference between the two are the uninformed.
