Quote of the Day

All of us barbecue guys are inbred." - - Chip Stamey, Stamey's Barbecue, Greensboro, NC

Stamey doesn't mean that pitmasters are into cousin-humping; he was referring to a certain segment of the NC barbecue business working on a mentoring basis, with his grandfather, Warner Stamey, having mentored many of the men who have gone on to open barbecue joints of their own: Wayne Monk at Lexington BBQ, the Alston Bridges family of Shelby, and the Red Bridges family, also of Shelby (they aren't related to the Alston Bridges family despite sharing the same name, I swear).
