BBQ Wars Finals

It should come as no surprise that the finals of our summer tournament will feature two of North Carolina’s most legendary barbecue restaurants. East vs. West. Vinegar vs. ketchup. It’s an argument as old as this state, and now it’s time to settle it for all eternity. (Um...we think.)

By now, you know the contenders. Voting will be open until Friday morning (we’ll repost the polls in Storm Advisory tomorrow) and we’ll announce the winner on Friday morning.

Let’s get cookin’!
