Cary, NC — This is a story about barbeque. And like all Southern stories about bbq, it’a complicated.
City BBQ Comes to Cary
This part’s simple: City BBQ is opening Cary on Saturday, April 12.
The new restaurant is at 1305 Kildaire Farm Road near the corner of High Meadow in Shoppes of Kildaire.
Vote for Cary’s Best Homemade Sauce
City BBQ has been running a contest for the best homemade sauce in Cary. Our Unofficial Proofreader, Brent Miller, has been honored as one of 6 finalists. But what could be more complicated than choosing amongst six stellar sauces? Fortunately, a celebrity judging panel will account for 50% of the result, public voting will account for the other 50%.
Abandoning all pretense of impartiality, we urge all our readers to visit City BBQ on Saturday April 12 around 1:00 to vote for Brent’s BBQ sauce.
Been There. Ate That.
We’ve already been to City BBQ with our good friend Ian Henshaw. He’s tapped in to all things barbeque and got us invited to a free preview.
Ian had the brisket. Lindsey had smoked turkey. I had the ribs. All were spectacular.
The cole slaw was crisp and fresh. The Texas Toast was light and buttery. A veritable Longhorn croissant.
Ian finished with the banana pudding. Lindsey had chocolate cake. I inhaled a peach cobbler.
Everyone slept for the rest of the afternoon.
The Many Styles of Barbeque
Barbeque comes in many flavors. Even the word is subject to different regional spellings.
City BBQ offers a nationwide tour of barbeque styles – Memphis ribs, Texas brisket and Carolina Pulled Pork (what we call barbecue hereabouts).
I can only tell you about the ribs. They were sublime. Dry, but meaty, with a perfect bark and pink smoke ring.
At City BBQW, you won’t find things swimming in sauce.
Spread Out and Enjoy Yourself
City BBQ has a nice, rustic-styled room and lots of outdoor seating.
Grab a picnic table, spread out and enjoy yourself.
