Default Barbecue Trail / North Carolina BBQ Society

Barbecue Trail

NCBS has designed a barbecue trail from Eastern North Carolina to
Tennessee. The trail will meander across the state with stops at 24 NCBS
Historic Barbecue Pits. These pits were carefully and selectively chosen
by the NCBS board as representatives of the distinctive methods and
barbecue cooking styles that have made North Carolina the Barbecue
Capital of the World. Each NCBS Historic Barbecue Pit still cooks the
old fashioned pit cooked method. And each NCBS Historic Barbecue Pit
will proudly display a specially designed emblem depicting old style
barbecue cooking that is part of the tradition, heritage and culture
that NCBS seeks to preserve.

Criteria for selection to the NCBS Historic Barbecue Trail included,
among other things, that the NCBS Historic Barbecue Pit cook their meat
product on pits fueled by wood or charcoal, make their own sauce, that
the pit had operated continuously for fifteen or more years, that the
end product was a good offering and representative of North Carolina
Barbecue and that the pit had earned and enjoyed the high esteem of its
community, the barbecue industry and barbecue aficionados. The board
decided to only include pits that provide a sit down dining experience
for the public and to limit the number of pits on the trail to two per
The establishment of the NCBS Historic Barbecue Trail will afford
visitors to the Old North State an opportunity to sample North Carolina
barbecue cooked in the traditional fashion and served by some of the
nicest people one could ever hope to meet.
