It wasn't NC BBQ...
...but it was in Durham. We attended the Durham County Fair on Saturday in Durham CT with Ethan and Bethany.
Mrs. Cupcakes had entered a pair of socks and a pair of mittens in the needlework category, so we had to go check out the scene. It was a bit drizzly, but we made it in time for the pig races, and we collectively sampled a cinnamon roll, lobster bisque, clam chowder in a bread bowl, spicy round fries, and Ethan and I each had a pretty good BBQ pork sammich. I also had one excellent, if overpriced, cannoli.
We saw pygmy goats, a minature cow, giant rabbits, pigs, llamas, chickens, and all manner of humanity. We parked in a field that reeked of manure, and rode a genuine school bus to the main gate.
