Whole Hog BBQ at The Skylight Inn

Where: Ayden, North Carolina

The Story: North Carolina is known as pork country, which is why people drive for hours to get to The Skylight Inn, a North Carolina icon since 1947. And what do people flock to this former James Beard winner for? Whole hog BBQ -- not really one dish so much as the inspiration behind many. They're so confident in their 'cue that their menu only has two other dishes: corn bread and cole slaw.
