This Is What Makes East And West North Carolina BBQ Sauce Different
Barbecue lore is rich and runs deep. It evokes a sense of place, and it's tied to tradition. Whether you're savoring a chopped chicken sandwich with white sauce (from Alabama, naturally), or sweet-sauced, hickory smoked burnt ends (in Kansas City, of course), barbecue is perhaps the most regional of all regional cuisines. And North Carolina is no exception; in fact, it's regionalized even within the state.
