This historic trail leads barbecue fans through the whole state of NC to some of the best BBQ joints. These pitmasters keep the traditional craft alive: Their pits are fueled only by charcoal or wood, they make their own sauce and they are in the barbecue business for more than 15 years.
This roadtrip is about iconic restaurants on the trail, pitmasters who dream of becoming a part of it and those, who search for the best barbecue – regardless of whether it’s cooked traditionally or not.
