If you’re wondering what barbecue dish to try during your trip to the Deep South, consider the infamous dishes below.

North Carolina Pulled Pork BBQ

If you’re wondering how the barbecue experts in North Carolina like their meat cooked, barbecue means a whole hog cooked low and slow over a banked pit. When you cook a pork butt or whole shoulder at a very low temperature for a long time, the meat can easily be pulled apart with your hands. Once the meat is perfectly cooked, it is pulled or chopped off the bone into moist strands. Some BBQ specialists like to dress the moist strands with some of the remaining “mop,” which is a vinegar and red-pepper basting sauce. This mouth-watering BBQ dish is a favorite among North Carolina residents and guests, and can often be found at any traditional barbecue restaurant.

At Sooey’s BBQ & Rib Shack, we’re proud to offer our restaurant customers the best in North Carolina pulled pork. Stop by one of our BBQ restaurants in Corolla, Nags Head, or Duck today to try some of our amazing BBQ!

North Carolina Southern Fried Chicken

While southern fried chicken may seem like a simple dish to make, only true Southerners can execute this famous dish properly. This delicate recipe requires the cook to soak the chicken in buttermilk before frying, creating an amazing crunch with moist chicken in the middle. At Sooey’s BBQ & Rib Shack, our southern fried chicken is nothing short of finger-lickin’-good! Stop by one of our North Carolina BBQ restaurants today or browse our menu online!
