Not sure when this aired, but Diva Q visited Midwood Smokehouse at some point. Funny how she keeps referring to Cheerwine as “cherry soda”.
BBQ Champion Danielle ‘Diva Q’ Dimovski stops in to visit Chef Pitmaster Matt Barry and taste real BBQ at Midwood Smokehouse in Charlotte NC. From Burnt Ends to the Pig Out plate we had everything covered and then some.
The 187-page book does mention the state’s signature varieties of smoked meat and sauce, but it also explores other North Carolina food traditions, including fish stew, Ocracoke fig cake, banana pudding, collards and even Moravian chicken pie. The book is part cookbook, part essay collection, part dining guide.
– Q 4 Fun interviews a board member of the NC BBQ Association
What makes you different than the other associations, societies and networks?
We train our judges to recognize and appreciate NC-style BBQ. Teams will be judged on their ability to produce traditional NC-style BBQ. I don’t think other sanctioning bodies concentrate on regional BBQ styles. Furthermore, we not only sanction competitions, but hold cooking classing and are beginning to work on projects that will promote NC BBQ to the general public. We don’t see the other bodies as competitors. We see them as partners and can hopefully jointly sanction some events as with this year’s comp in Washington with the NC Pork Council.
