Calvin Trillen’s thoughtful New Yorker piece offers some
insights into the battle over North Carolina BBQ, and into North Carolina culture. It
is a pleasant piece and its greatest strength is to recognize the futility
in defining North Carolina BBQ. We know what BBQ is. And we know what it isn’t. No amount
of written words can change that.
Speaking of North Carolina barbecue, check back to NC Folk soon for updates on
our Lexington Style Barbecue media project.
