News & Observer: Pitmaster: Sam Jones takes ’cue to the next level

BBQ North Carolina

Recently, The News & Observer stopped by Sam Jones BBQ to talk about the Jone’s family history, Skylight Inn, and Sam Jones BBQ. We were really excited to share our family history, and love of BBQ, and further share the traditions of NorthCarolina Whole Hog BBQ.

Sam had not only become proud of his family’s history, he figured out his role in preserving its legacy. “I saw that I could be more effective for the business than being the guy who made coleslaw,” Sam said. “That doesn’t mean I’m saying that I’m more important than the guy who makes the coleslaw.”
