Most people mistakenly believe that BBQ is made up of tomato paste, sugar, and a little meat to act as a vehicle. Eastern NC Pork BBQ is the real thing. 2 places do it better than any others I've ever had. Both are legends in the Tarheel State and I always make sure to get some when I'm back home. The first, Cooper's, has been a legend in downtown Raleigh since the 30's when Raleigh was just a little town. The other is right in the middle of Hog Country and is an institution in it's own right.

Cooper's Bbq & Catering
109 E Davie St, Raleigh, NC 27601
Phone: (919) 832-7614

Parker's Barbecue
2514 US Highway 301 S, Wilson, NC 27893
Phone: (252) 237-0972

Y'all try them out the next time you're traveling on I40 through Raleigh or I95 past Wilson. You won't be disappointed!

Just two of the MANY MANY Q-joints in North Carolina! I've been to 365 in NC so far, and there have been some GREAT places and some I wouldn't send my dog to!!!
