Green River BBQ ~ Saluda N.C.

Green River BBQ montage

The Vitals:
the spot: Green River BBQ 131 Highway 176 Saluda NC 28773
the eats: Pulled Pork, Ribs, Tomato Pie, Collard Greens
the bucks: $10 a head when you order meats by pound + sides
the full nelson: decent BBQ in a cozy North Carolina mountain 

Green River BBQ had a tough act to follow. The day before me and my crew had an epic Eastern Carolina BBQ lunch from The Pig in Chapel Hill N.C. and that was some of the best barbecue I have had in years. Green River BBQ at best might make for a decent lunch stop when trekking in the mountains of North Carolina but you will be getting your pulled pork fix and that is seldom a bad thing.

The Pig Whole Hog BBQ ~ Chapel Hill N.C.

The Pig Whole Hog BBQ montage

The Vitals:
the spot: The Pig Whole Hog BBQ 630 Weaver Dairy Road Chapel Hill N.C. 27514
the eats: Pulled Pork, Pork Ribs, Pork Cheek, you get the idea 
the bucks: $10 a head if you’re doing meats by the pound
the full nelson: why folks from North Carolina love their bbq

The Pig Whole Hog BBQ is pretty much exactly that. A whole hog that has been rendered oh so tender with robust with flavor that can only come from whole hog cooking. And The Pig ain’t serving up your average swine either. Their pork is locally raised, hormone and antibiotic free. Plus you can get pulled pork sandwich for $6 bucks. My kinda spot.

Cheap Eats Charlotte

Cheap Eats, The South By September 10, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

Cheap Eats Charlotte was a landmark episode for me: this was the 50th episode of Cheap Eats. Hard to believe three years ago it all started with the pilot episode in Minneapolis but here we are. Fitting that this special episode featured some of my favorite things about food: burgers, food trucks, chocolate and food culture collisions. Charlotte is a growing town that likes to eat and with that, let’s take one more big bite of Cheap Eats Charlotte!!
