Where's the Best North Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwich

Andrew Sep 12, 2003 02:58 PM

I will be in the Winston-Salem area of NC from 9/12 to 9/20 and I would very much like to sink my teeth into the best, authentic, Carolina pulled pork sandwich in western NC, any suggestions? I would even be willing to travel a bit, say as far south as Charlotte, as far east as Raleigh, and as far west as Asheville. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Yum, yum.

      Look for a Lexington BBQ. I believe there is one in WS. If there is, look no further. It is the quintessential NC BBQ experience.

      If you drive up past Durham, be sure to stop in to Bullock's.

      This from a self-avowed BBQ snob of the highest order. Enjoy!

        Bullock's? Oh gawd, are you freaking kidding me? Bullock's does good fried chicken and the family style dinner is priced right, but even Smithfield's (a chain, mind you) Q is better than Bullock's!

          I agree with Mclaugh. Cue is the LAST thing on the menu I'd order at Bullocks.

          Yes, Bullock's has its fans, even among 'Hounds, but even most of them concede the Cue doesn't measure up. Do a search for "Bullock's" and see for yourself.

        Lexington # 1 (aka Honey Monk's) in Lexington NC. Ask for outside brown to be included.

          Depending on how far you're willing to travel.. Cloeset I beleive would be Stamey's in Greensboro. Then Lexington is famous, with Lexington Barbeque #1 leading the way. Heading east for about 1.5 hours is Allen & Son off 86 going south.
