Friday Find: David Dawei NC BBQ Tour: Parker’s Barbecue

We’ve previously featured David Dawei’s NC barbecue videos from B’s Barbecue and Skylight Inn. Here’s his third stop from his barbecue tour from 2017.

This is my Third stop in North Carolina along the BBQ Tour. Parkers’ BBQ is located in Wilson. If you are in the vicinity, definitely stop by. Their family style is the best way to go, so bring lots of friends and a big appetite.

The Pork (as served) was fantastic – 9/10

The Vinegar BBQ Sauces weren’t needed IMO – 7/10

The Cole Slaw was very nice; loved the zing the mustard provided- 9/10

The Potatoes were OK, but I don’t care for Boiled potatoes- 6/10

The Corn Sticks – I did not care for these – 5/10

The Hush Puppies tasted like a plain donut/dessert =8/10

Overall Value = 9.9/10
