Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just moved to North Carolina a few years ago, so this guide to NC BBQ has been indispensible. Garner has spent many years sampling and reviewing NC BBQ, and he really seems to know what he's talking about in his reviews. He's picked the 100 best BBQ joints in NC and gives a wealth of info about each, including address, phone number, hours, menu items, etc. Of course, he spends the most time talking about the BBQ.
The intro contains a concise history of NC BBQ, including a pretty thorough discourse on the differences between Eastern Carolina BBQ and Piedmont BBQ. I'm a newcomer to NC BBQ, which usually consists of smoked pork with a vinegar-based sauce, so this background info is helpful. Most of the places he reviews are well-known locally and are pretty casual, preferring to put their emphasis on the BBQ instead of the atmosphere. A terrific guide and an enjoyable read. Highly recommended for NC residents and fans of BBQ.

Format: Paperback
Bob Garner's Guide to North Carolina Barbecue is a regional restaurant guide to what are arguably the best barbecue joints North Carolina has to offer. Each individual restaurant is presented with its address, its hours for serving barbecue, and a brief yet mouth-wateringly descriptive of its barbecue styles, special touches, and occasional, its limitations. Bob Garner's Guide to North Carolina Barbecue is recommended as a "must-have" for barbecue epicureans who either live in North Carolina or are simply passing through -- even if only briefly.

Format: Paperback
This is a great guide that we used for a BBQ road trip through the NC area. I love how he pointed out what method each placed used to cook their food, how it tastes, what he ate etc. We were able to plan which places we had to get to that day and which ones to skip (chain restaurants, electric cookers, etc).

He did a great job with each write up - nice bit of history in each write up. Seemed to give honest reviews - but glad that some review was given.

We have books where all the author does is write up about the restaurant etc, and you get there and the food is not good - at least with this book you have a general idea if you will like the "style" and then you can pass judgement yourself.
