Some BBQ

A recent trip to Raleigh NC, allowed us to swing into “The Pit”.  This is a fun little spot with clean decor that serves our good ol’ North Carolina tradition = BAR B QUE.
The space is simple but has some fun features.  They have taken the large glass interior “windows” and applied drawings to them.  (I’m thinking it’s done in vinyl)  The feeling is casual with a touch of funk with the lighting.
We started with some Fried Green Tomatoes.  They had a really yummy fresh chow-chow on top, this added just the right crunch and acidity.  These were the best part of the meal!
We both got the combo platter so we could try different meats.  Joe got the brisket and the sliced pork.  I went with the turkey BBQ and the fried chicken.  The brisket was good!  The sliced pork was a little dry.  Fried chicken = YUMMY!  And the turkey BBQ was pretty tasty albeit a little vinegar-y for my preference. The sides were good as well:  cole slaw, baked bean, collards, and Mac & Cheese.  Unfortunately the hushpuppies were not hot!
The Pit is run by Ed Mitchell.  You may have seen him on Bobby Flay’s  Throwdown.  Ed was also on Good Morning America this morning!  This guy gets around!  So if you’re in the Raleigh area go try out The Pit’s Q and tell us what you think!
