Sam Jones Barbecue

Sam Jones, a third generation pit master from a legendary Ayden family, also shocked some ’round here when he opened by serving NC craft beers as an option to sweet tea to go with your ‘cue. He’s now a genuine barbecue superstar, and the restaurant’s webpage offers lots of great details about his family and its traditions.
