As many of you may know, North Carolina is extremely rich in BBQ tradition — so much so that there is a supposed schism between east and west as to what BBQ really is. Whether it’s whole hog or just the shoulder, it’s all pig and magically delicious. I decided to make the trek to a BBQ joint that is lesser-known than its Lexington counterparts yet is not lacking for tradition — Whispering Pines B-B-Q.
Last week I was slated to travel to take a 2-day training class. The good news was that I missed the huge winter storm that slammed North Carolina. The bad news: my class was in Atlanta. So instead of snow and ice, I got lots and lots of ice. But once the ice melted, I decided to hit up a few BBQ joints in and near to the Atlanta area.
It’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to sit down and do a BBQ restaurant review. It’s not that I haven’t eaten at any BBQ joints. On the contrary, I’ve eaten at my fair share of them over the last few months. I confess that I’ve been lazy and just haven’t taken the time to write them down. It all works out in the end, however… I can roll them all into one great big epic post!
Not too long ago, The Shed re-released their suite of sauces and marinades with a new label and a “junk free” declaration. I’ll go through each of the offerings I was sent by the great folks at The Shed in individual blog posts. Today let’s check out the Southern Spicy Sweet Shed Spread.
Back in December, I was contacted by Michael Moran from Snazzy Gourmet asking if I wanted to review some of the sauces that are carried on the site. Absolutely! I’m always game for trying out sauces. Today’s review is one of the sauces I received from Snazzy Gourmet. From the heart of Atlanta GA, here is Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q Sauce.
