North Carolina Barbecue

Would you like some new recipes or restaurants to try?  How about original North Carolina barbecue?  Perhaps you should read what local "barbecue man" Bob Garner has to say about one of our state's favorite foods.  NC Bookwatch has even done a special about him.  While you are reading, or eating, why not try a soft drink called Cheerwine?  This beverage was created in Salisbury, North Carolina.  You can check out Bob Garner's books at your local library or bookstore.  Enjoy!
