Recipe by merrilife

I am a recent transplant to the South, and while in NC, I decided I might as well learn to be southern and try NC pork barbeque. I fell in love! Serve this on buns with some coleslaw and sweet tea and you are a true NC native! I found this recipe on the web after searching for one that was easy to do! Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Yes, this is a true blue pork barbeque recipe. As a true North Carolinian, this is the recipe I had lost. Thank you so much. I live in Minneapolis and they always put some heavy barbeque sauce on it. And they have never heard of putting coleslaw on the bun with it. Thanks Again!!
