The News & Observer: Renowned pitmaster Sam Jones is opening a barbecue restaurant in Raleigh
That’s right Raleigh! If y’all haven’t heard the big news yet, we’re opening a Sam Jones BBQ in your neck of the woods. We’ll have more details for you soon, but in the meantime, check out these quotes below from Sam about our new digs:
“There’s no other way to recreate whole hog barbecue, the fat rendering, dripping down over hot coals, sizzling, the plume of smoke rising, there’s nothing else you can do to get it like that,” Jones said in an interview.
“The barbecue at Skylight and Sam Jones BBQ is exactly the same, but the experience is different,” he said. “This will still be Sam Jones barbecue, and (diners) will still be eating a piece of North Carolina history.”
We can’t wait to be over in Raleigh here in the next few months. Make sure to stay tuned for updates!
