I almost fell out of mine as well. Unfortunately, not all of my process made it on the show. It would be awesome if you could cook a 18 pound shoulder at 225 degrees in five hours. Think about how much more sleep we could get.

Wonder why they would edit it out? We know you know how to cook, Brother! For them to not let you explain your process is kind of weird. What would that have eaten up? Another five seconds, maybe? Let us know if you ever figure out how to cook a shoulder in five hours, though!

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.

I will never forget the first time I enjoyed Eastern NC BBQ. The gal waiting on me asked me if I wanted some "dee-up" (dip). I had no idea what she was talking about and her accent only made it worse. I asked several times "dee-up?" trying to figure out what she was saying. Finally, she shaked the sauce bottle in front of my face exclaiming "Dee-up! Dee-up!"

Great times, there!
I thought that was the way it was pronounced, of course people say we talk funny in this part of Virginia. LOL

My only disappointment with this show, besides not being a part of it, is that is was not whole hog.

I think letting these cooks "do their thing" and let the judges call what parts they wanted ( "shoulder knuckle, jowl, bacon and loin please !" ) would have been a better representation of NC BBQ in general.

I must admit I have not watched the show yet and probably will have more opinions later when I do. I'm happy to see a new face in the NC bbq scene. If Zach is anything like his Dad, then he is a welcome addition indeed.

Great to have some one of your caliber among us Tuffy! Welcome to the Brethren!!!

I figured some thing was wrong...I knew that you know better than to make a statement like that. That's what kills me about these show's...they are almost counter productive when you look at the whole picture if you're not getting all of the correct info, or the rest of the info is editted out. Just imagine the dissapointment of some one that tries a whole shoulder for the first time and realizes they are far from done after the 1st 5 hours!!!

I've heard the stories about the electric cookers.

But, I guess I make a distinction between BBQ cooked by someone who happens to be in NC and actual NC BBQ. You don't have to be in NC to cook NC BBQ. And, as we saw on this episode, just because you are in NC doesn't mean you can't cook KC style BBQ in NC.

Perhaps in BBQ comps. and BBQ TV but I don't think that is necessarily true. There are still tons of people cooking traditional Q at least here in TX.

I don't necessarily disagree. I was refering more in the comp and tv area. I don't think that to many people are winning comps, at least KCBS style comps, cooking and offering "traditional" 'que.

Like I said, if the show wanted traditional NC style 'que, they wouldn't have given the teams whole pork belly.

So, in my mind, all bets are off and good for Sauceman's to think out side of the box seeing as he was given some thing out side of the norm.

Thanks for your vote of confidence

The thing about NC BBQ is that there's really not too much going on TV-wise. Some people in NC are pretty self-conscious about that. For example. If you look at my Facebook profile my cover is a Eastern Carolina whole hog. That's what I cook and dang proud of it. On the NC BBQ SOCIETY page however, it's a slab of ribs looking all glazed like something out of Kansas City. Now if the NC BBQ SOCIETY isn't proud enough to toss a hog on their own Facebook cover, well....

The other thing is Carolina BBQ is austere. Kinda like sushi and steak.

If you went to the finest sushi joints in Japan, you will basically get sliced fish on rice. That's it. No champange reduction, no secret himalayan spices, no Dragon rolls.

If you wanted the best steak ever - dry-age a ribeye. Add salt. Add fire.

While these items are all great it makes for dull TV. People like secret tricks and secret rubs and layers and layers of complexity.

Not too many people really going to watch real NC BBQ being cooked -

Salt pig, crack beer, and shovel coal under til done.

I hear you but how many times can one watch ribs being slathered with honey, brown sugar, Parkay and Tiger sauce before you get tired of that too? Every time they have a show that requires ribs to be cooked that's pretty much what they present to the viewer.

I'd like to see something different for a change.

I think that's why in season 2 they had all those obnoxious side challenges.

At this rate it's just gonna end up like top chef where they just end up smoking food from the vending machines for a challenge.

They should just do an Iron Chef style challenge.
