go directly to harris teeter, prepared foods section (not next to sushi, but not too far away), and find the "north carolina bbq" deli container tray (black plastic rectangle, clear top) of pulled pork from brookwood farms, siler city, n.c. (a bit less than a pound) and enjoy.
no big label, just look for an oval sticker "carolina bbq".
authentic eastern carolina flavor, NO fatty crap like those "tubs" from other places. no fake smoke.
it is the real deal. around $5.50/container --@12-14 oz.. let me know if i steered you wrong.
freckmoto, the glebe rd. location on this "store locator" site is near ballston metro: http://www.harristeeter.com/other/sto...
pentagon row store location is close to pentagon city metro stop.
call and be sure they carry it, but it sounds like it is widely available.
do me a favor, find me some good fresh green peanuts to boil up, or some good boiled ones, while you're at home. have a safe trip!
This thread gave me a taste for it, so I stopped at the Ballston store tonight. They were out of it on the shelf, but someone got me some out of the back that was still frozen, so I had to thaw it when I got home. As an added bonus, it was on sale with .50 off. Because of HT's NC roots they carry a lot of things I used to stock up on on trips south like good fine ground corn meal to make my grandmother's corn bread recipe.
Good call alka. I'm a huge eastern NC cue fan and gave this stuff a try the first time I saw it. It's a lot cheaper than driving four or five hours to Parker's, Wilber's, Moore's, etc.
Another unusual source for good eastern NC cue in this area is the Weenie-Beenie in Shirlington. They serve it with the proper little packs of Texas Pete hot sauce (made in Winston-Salem).
