You will not find better "Eastern" (vinegar-based) BBQ; we know, we've tried just about all the establishments out to the coast. The "sauce" itself is particularly good and they use it to just about the right amount. There's more on the table and there's some...More

As I have gotten a little older, I have frankly been a little pickier with BBQ. While most BBQ places in North Carolina do a fine job with pork butt/shoulder, other items have been at times a little ambitious or disappointing. My family and I...More

I believe it is Lonerider Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen. I'd call The Pig just to be sure. The website for the brewing company is Loneriderbeer.
