[quote=“dorm73, post:27, topic:28950”]Don’t like Lexington style. Too sweet, runny tomato . . yuck. I like Eastern NC the best, vinegar based no sauce, red peppers, cooked over smoke, add a little Texas Pete. I’ve had very good BBQ in Greenville, SC, think it was mustard based, not sure. It was good. I’m in Virginia, BBQ up here is pretty much terrible. I’ve stumbled upon edible BBQ here but it’s an exception. I hear there’s very good in RDU area, have tried a place in Durham, very good. Forgot the name. I’ve had brisket in Fort Worth Texas. OMG. I could be converted, maybe.[/quote]While I like Lexington style, there is just something about Eastern, NC bbq that I love. I never get tired of it like I do the tomato based sauces.
Not many options for eastern NC BBQ in Charlotte though. Bill Spoon’s has it and Midwood Smokehouse offers an eastern NC style (that is actually their default style unless you specifically request a tomato based sauce)
