A short documentary entitled Skylight Inn’s Whole Hog BBQ about the Skylight Inn and Sam Jones.

Sam Jones is the seventh generation pitmaster of his family’s BBQ restaurant, the Skylight Inn. Since 1947, the restaurant has become an icon in the BBQ world for selling one thing and one thing only: chopped Eastern-style North Carolina whole hog pork—served only on a bun or in a tray with corn bread. As Sam Jones says, when the customers arrive at Skylight Inn, “they’ve already made the decision of what they’re gonna be eating for lunch, it’s just a matter of how much of it they’re gonna have.”
