The folks at Redneck BBQ Lab in Benson, NC – Jerry Stephenson and his sister Roxanne Manley – don’t strictly adhere to eastern or western NC barbecue disciplines and instead pull from all barbecue cultures. Bob Garner visited for North Carolina Weekend on UNC-TV.
The festival takes place in downtown Kinston every May. Ahead of this year’s version from May 5-6, UNC-TV posted this video on the 2016 festival.
Earlier this year, Bob Garner visited Picnic ahead of their one year anniversary for UNC-TV’s NC Weekend.
Bob Garner finds a hidden gem at Randy’s BBQ in the town of Troutman, which is between Mooresville and Statesville. Randy’s opened in 1985 and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
