Favorite Style of Barbeque

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 11:25 AM

Serious question -

Maurice Bessinger's death made me think - what style of barbeque do you like the best?

Mustard based? Eastern NC vinegar based? Ketchup based? Beef or pork?

I like them all but my favorite is vinegar based pulled pork.

Beef/vinegar based***

Mustard/pulled pork or Texas brisket***

1. Mater Based, 2. Vinegar...

Don't like mustard anything. Beef or pork don't make much difference to me...I suppose I typically eat pork.

I like it all, but I prefer pork BBQ and ribs

I like all sauces as well, but I like to mix mustard sauce with ketchup-based BBQ sauce. Mix it all up with coleslaw and baked beans......good eatin!

Then cook-dry the sauce a little into the meat.
Smoked is also a favorite.

Dukes BBQ on Whitten St in Orangeburg

Whatever kind they make is the best!

Duke's is mighty good. Their sauce is ketchup with mustard

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 11:49 AM

and sugar in it. Very similar to Sweatman's in Holly Hill, which is also a favorite.

I love pretty much all BBQ, but vinegar really just suits my tastes.

Midway BBQ in Union

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 11:49 AM

That place is my favorite BBQ in the state. All three sauces are good but I prefer the vinager. The best part is everything else they serve. Chicken stew, beef hash, fried chicken.
If you ever go through the small town of Union SC stop and eat there!

Skylight Inn - Ayden NC
Parkers BBQ - Greenville NC

Parkers is amazing***

Skylight Inn has been claimed as the best BBQ

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 12:56 PM

in the country.

Re: Skylight Inn

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 1:11 PM

I have had bad BBQ, and lots of good BBQ, but have yet to find GREAT, can't be beat BBQ. That includes SC, NC, GA and Memphis.

Skylight Inn is good. Only takes cash and you can get a pulled pork sandwich or plate. That's it. It was GOOD.

I have been traveling in Eastern NC for the last year or so and have eaten at the standards, old standbys, award winners,BBQ trail places like Parkers (Wilson,NC) Wilburs (Goldsboro), etc.

One I recommend you try is in Tarboro, NC - Blackbeards BBQ & C-Food (5232 U.S. 64 Alt, Tarboro, NC 27886)
BBQ was GOOD, but the overall aura was Fan-Dam-Tastic. Had great fried okra and hushpuppies. They cook with smoke and heat the restaurant with smoke (wood stove). You get out of the car and you know you are in the right place.

Re: Eastern NC vinegar pepper based

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 5:28 PM

Parker's isn't even a close second to the skylight ...... Cracklins and bark chopped up in the meat yum......

B's BBQ in Greenville or Jack Cobb and Son in Farmville is better than Parker's .... IMHO

For American, give me mustard sauce.

But if we're allowing international entries, nothing comes close to Brasilian BBQ (better known as churrasco) in my opinion.

Re: Favorite Style of Barbeque

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 1:13 PM

I like Vinegar and I like Mustard. Each one about even, especially if they have a little hot bite.

Never really liked Maurice's. Found better BBQ other places.

Whatever way they do it at Cain's BBQ in Florence SC.

Which means it should be tomato based as that's he Upstate's style of BBQ. Vinegar and mustard bases can get out.

Sorry, upstate just isn't a bbq mecca..... most of the local places now don't even smoke, they use electric cookers for convenience.

I'm hungry***

you can get out too!

The best is the kind that doesn't need sauce at all.***

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 3:49 PM

Tough choice

Posted: Feb 25, 2014 4:44 PM

BBQ is like sex in that even when it's bad it's still pretty good.

I guess I would have to say Vinegar based sauce on pulled pork. Grew up in the Midlands on mustard sauce, but I've grown to love a good vinegar & pepper sauce.

Red sauce belongs on chicken and beef IMO

I like it though :) I miss being able to eat BBQ

during the 70s, 80s and some90s
lost their lease in 1993, I think

pulled pork, mustard base!

Have other restaurants still but the drive-in made them very special!


It's all good!!

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 7:42 PM

Vinegar with pepper on pork and ketchup based on ribs. If you want some, stop by my tailgate spot next year. All tigers welcome!!

Have to add..

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 7:44 PM

Anytime we head to the mountains from York county, a few sandwiches from Bridges in Shelby always hit the spot.

Bridges BBQ Lodge in Shelby is great***

Charlies barbeque in Greenville SC

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 8:56 PM

is my local fav. Vinegar based is the best (which I believe originated in NC) by a mile and it's not even close.

Unfortunately Charlies doesn't pit cook anymore.....

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 9:08 PM

they use electric ovens.

Best I've found in upstate are Henry's Smokehouse in Greenville and Carolina Country BBQ in Spartanburg.

Dang..when did they switch? I last went there in 2006***

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 9:13 PM

Just in the past couple of years....

Posted: Feb 26, 2014 9:16 PM

they still have the pit and use it on occasion for Thanksgiving turkeys.... was disappointed that they switched... you can taste the difference.

Depends on what mood I am in. I am really becoming a fan of some of the Habanaro based sauces. I like pulled pork, but baby back ribs are my favorite.

Pulled Pork and Spareribs

Posted: Mar 4, 2014 10:36 PM

I can eat it all but my favorite is vinegar. We don't call it North Carolina BBQ here in SC though. It's referred to as Williamsburg County or PeeDee BBQ. In my opinion you can't get any REAL BBQ without going to Williamsburg County. I live in Cootlumbia and they make what I refer to as roast pork here. If they ask you what kind of sauce you want when you order it, it isn't real BBQ!!! Real BBQ is cooked with the sauce on it!!

The kind that's in front of me.***

Ketchup-based w/Jalapeno.

And my homemade mustard-based. You'd drink a glass of it before you go to bed..



I've been wrong two times, but this isn't one of them.

Re: White BBQ Sauce

Posted: Mar 5, 2014 3:02 AM

Interesting style out of Alabama. Mustard based and Estern NC are my favorites though. Apple cider vinegar is the key to good mustard and Eastern NC sauces.
