6.8.11It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man with an opinion about barbecue will disagree with one third of the population at any given time. At least. Is barbecue a verb or a noun? Should it have tomato-based sauce, or vinegar sauce? Beef or pork? The options are endless and your opinion on barbecue will tell me a lot about you.

In eastern North Carolina, barbecue is pork and it’s cooked in a vinegar “sauce.” I enjoy it, though I do not toe the party line of this particular brand of barbecue, but rather enjoy all kinds. But hoo boy will people debate you about this. People in North Carolina will also argue about the following until they are blue in the face:

1. Bojangles or Chick-fil-A (Answer: Chick-fil-A)

2. NC State, UNC or Duke (Answer: Green Bay Packers)

3. Beach or mountains (Answer: Mountains)

4. Is it spelled ya’ll or y’all? (Answer: y’all)

What am I missing, fellow North Carolinians? What do people in your area argue about?
