So I know this is a DTR-focused site, and there aren’t many Q options downtown, but I gotta poll the crowd to see if there’s any news on Sam Jones’ new spot. I’m dying to try it—huge Skylight fan here.
Plus, I just love to talk barbecue in general. It’s one of the things that makes NC special and unique. I even had Coopers cater my wedding (and all of our kids’ birthday parties since then).
@dtraleigh feel free to roll into another thread, but I think there’s potential for Raleigh—with Coopers, The Pit, Southern Charred (which I haven’t tried yet), Sam Jones, and hopefully others soon—to claim pork barbecue as its “destination food”, like Nashville’s hot chicken, Philly’s steaks, etc.
