Another simple pleasure
My uncle sent me this photo today. This is the Red Pig Barbecue restaurant in Concord, North Carolina. Or it WAS the Red Pig because it was demolished to make room for progress. This hole-in-the-wall was just a few blocks from my maternal grandparents' house. Several barbecue places in Concord claimed the name "Red Pig" through the years, but this was the original.
North Carolina is known for its barbecue. None of that sickly sweet red sauce. No sir! Not at the Red Pig. My mouth waters just thinking about the seasoned pork, the bun and the slaw.
Did you have a favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant growing up? Do you have one now?
