North Carolina Goes Whole Hog!

Whole HogWhether you are a Tarheel native or you moved here and now like calling North Carolina home, there’s a good chance you have enjoyed some local pork barbecue.

North Carolina is known for a lot of things – the Wright Brothers’ first flight at Kill Devil Hills, basketball, our beaches and mountains – but perhaps nothing says North Carolina more than our barbecue, and for many of us, we go whole hog!

That’s why the North Carolina Pork Council has just launched www.WholeHogBarbecue.com,  a website celebrating the tradition of cooking whole hog barbecue and the competitions that recognize those who do it best.

There are several great competitions taking place around the state this fall. Be sure to check’em out and let us know how you go whole hog!
