SCNB & White Swan are fast food variants of barbecue. What do you expect? LOL
Holt Lake is a poor example of barbecue. Sorry you had to suffer through that one.
Yes, the bbq in NC is chopped fine. That is a regional thing. The fine chopping allows the thin vinegar sauce to flow throughout the meat. Pulled bbq doesn't give you the same effect.
Find you a good traditional joint that still cooks over wood. You won't think "they all taste the same" anymore.
