Looking For Carolina BBQ in LA
I am a California native but after some family moved to the Raleigh-Durham area I have become a Carolina BBQ addict and I need to find a fix out here. If you are familiar with Hog Heaven in Durham then you know exactly what I am looking for. I don't need the place to be pretty, have good service, or even pass a health inspection...I just want Carolina BBQ.
Can someone please show me the light?
gdrace, there is this place on lincoln just south of venice in santa monica/venice area called baby blues bbq. They have very good barbecue, they claim to do it in multiple styles, carolina included, i can't confirm never having eaten carolina barbecue, but what I can say is that the ribs are delicious, the pulled pork needs a little help but the ribs....oooh and the sauce...check it out and i hope you find what you are looking for.
The Oinkster in Eagle rock has on their menu a BBQ pulled Pork sandwich, described as, "Our pork is brined with soy and honey then slowly roasted and smoked.
It's a big deal with red cabbage slaw, caramelized onions and Carolina bbq sauce"
I've not had it, but my guess is that other folks on the board have - hopefully they'll chime in.
