Today I had the opportunity to meet up with some really great people today at Lexington BBQ #1 in Lexington, NC. I will talk about that in a different blog post.
About a month or so back, I came across a blog post by DivaQ regarding pig candy. You can find her post here. As I finally arrived home and began to prepare dinner (burgers on the grill… tasty tasty!), the lure of bacon bacon bacon lingered in the back of my mind. I said to myself, “Self, I should do some smoked pig candy tonight.”
I often lament the lack of good quality BBQ joints here in the Charlotte, NC metro area. It really is a shame that in a city the size of Charlotte, the closest good BBQ joint is a 45-60 minute drive away. There were a couple of joints close to my previous employer that were okay, but they were nothing spectacular.
