I am going to drop a bomb on you Boshizzle...there are a lot of renown NC restaurants serving "Eastern NC BBQ" that cook their meats in....wait for it... electric ovens with no carbon fuels whatsoever being a part of the cook.

With this being said, I have heard more than 1 person (even a KCBS judge) reference a NC bbq restaurant and say they served Eastern NC BBQ. These electric cookers are basically saucing/seasoning their product after cooking it and, then later on, steaming it to serve.

Pete Jones doesn't use electric cookers. They do it right. I have paid for at least one of the 4 walls on their restaurants eating there when I was in school at Greenville. They easily rank in my top 5 bbq restaurants in NC.
