RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A barbecue joint in Durham was just named on Yahoo! Travel’s “50 States: the Best BBQ Across America” list.
Backyard BBQ Pit was picked as the spot to go to if you want the best barbecue in North Carolina.
Yahoo! Travel said of Backyard BBQ Pit:
It is a tall order to produce the best barbecue in this state, but Backyard BBQ Pit in Durham upholds the standards with sweet sauces and tender pork ribs. If you can pry your fingers off of those ribs for a few, try the fried pork chops. Holy pig’s feet! They are delicious.”
For those wondering, “BBQ joint” is defined by Yahoo! Travel as “shacks, trailers, lean-to’s, carts, and actual sit-down restaurants, either free-standing or in strip malls.”
One important requirement for every place on the list was that they have “at least one starchy side dish worthy of pairing with the meat.” Beans on the menu were also a requirement and “heavy desserts like fruit cobblers or rich bread puddings” were also factored in.
