What People are Saying About This
John Reed believes that the traditional barbecue joint is a place in the South where people from all walks of life and all races, from the sheriffs' deputies to the construction workers to the town bankers, gather to eat the local specialty at a price just about anybody can afford. . . . A passage in Holy Smoke says, 'North Carolina barbecue is an edible embodiment of Tradition. For many of us, barbecue symbolizes Home and People.'" Calvin Trillin, The New Yorker
