The Story of BBQ in North Carolina Exhibit

3/18 - 5/26/2020

In North Carolina, we love our tasty, regional, home-grown barbecue. From the earliest history of cooking meats over flames and coals to modern methods, North Carolina has a proud barbecue tradition, featured at family and community gatherings across the state. Whether at a backyard grill, a community event, or a traditional wood-fired pit at a local restaurant, delicious barbecue can be found in every North Carolina county and in every corner of our history.

 

The Story of BBQ in North Carolina explores how growing and cultivating hogs emerged in North Carolina. The exhibit also fuels the east versus west debate about sauces and condiments, even as it explains that the eastern vinegar base and the western tomato ketchup enhanced versions really are not that different.
