I know no one was putting coleslaw on BBQ when we lived in TX and I don't remember it from TN either, but here in NC it is commonly offered. I can't tell you how it makes me shudder to think of eating it that way. Is that an east vs west NC BBQ thing or is it all over the state?

It not like that in Lexington and surrounding Lexington BBQ restaurants you will find BBQ served with Red Slaw. I never had cole slaw on BBQ until I left that city and it not my preference and red slaw on hot dogs not cole slaw.. that one I really cant deal with. Since many restaurants have there take on how cole slaw is made Im picky and can tell by looking at it if it made the right way.

Try South Carolina BBQ they use yellow slaw. All I will say that was an interesting once in life time experience.

"North Carolinians put slaw on their barbecue, and God sent them Jesse Helms as punishment" - Lewis Grizzard

I'm from South Carolina, and I had my first taste of North Carolina's BBQ+Slaw sandwich the other day. The slaw is a great addition, I must say, and I speak as one who has spent many years avoiding cole slaw.

I always thought it was gross until I finally tried it when I was like 17 or 18 and it is SO DELICIOUS and the only way I eat it now!

I'd lived in NC (from Raleigh to Boone and points in between) all my life till we moved to SC a few months ago. My husband and I have vastly different opinions on "Lexington" slaw (vinegar based) and "cole" slaw (mayonnaise based). I prefer the former and he will only eat the latter. I like either on a chopped barbecue sandwich. Yumm!!!!

Haven't seen "yellow" slaw in SC yet.

I used to live in Northern VA and this placed called Memphis BBQ Company served it with coleslaw and they called it "Memphis style". I always assumed they meant that is how it is served in TN. I like it served that way if the coleslaw is good.

Goodness that's the only way to eat BBQ. LOL Of course I've never seen the yellow slaw. My husband prefers his BBQ without slaw.

Never had it that way until moving to NC a few years ago, but I'm always open to trying new things.... and now like vinegar based BBQ and even chili-dogs with or without slaw toppings.

Variety is the spice of life
