Barbecue is beloved by everyone and traditional Eastern North Carolina Whole-Hog barbecue is the best-smoked pork that the region offers. Piedmont native Elizabeth Karmel created her Western-Style North Carolina (Lexington) Vinegar Sauce by taste memory when she first started smoking her own barbecue. And, she is known in barbecue circles for her signature sauce, which hits the perfect balance of sweet and peppery, and tangy with apple-rich vinegar. She used her sauce to season the Western-style Carolina barbecue (butts, shoulders and hams) that she grew up on, but in later years realized that by cooking the whole hog, and adding the belly, tenderloin and ribs to the hams and shoulders, you get barbecue with better texture and flavor. Her mash-up may not be traditional, but it is the best that the eastern and the western regions have to offer. This “Best in Class” barbecue is only available at www.CarolinaCueToGo.com.
