A modest mountain joint with a woodstack out back, Carolina Bar-B-Q offers prime cuts of pork shoulder. But if it's gristle and fat that you fancy, those are both available upon request, says the notice next to the cash register. This restaurant is on The North Carolina Barbecue Society Historic Trail.
Can't-Miss Menu Item: Hush puppies
