Re: [genpcncfir] Pete Jones barbecue master
- Dear group member,
Thank you so very much. It'll be a hop for me to
get there. I really miss good North Carolina barbecue.
When we first came here, last century it is now, Mama
immediately found between home and Richmond a barbecue
place that served North Carolina barbecue. The
restaurant was almost literally "on" U.S. 1 so small
was the gravel patch in front of it with the road at
that point totally lacking in anything remotely
resembling a shoulder. Worse yet, the spot the
restaurant occupied was a triangular strip between the
two-lane road behind it and U.S. 1 out front. Large
plate glass windows covered most of the wall looking
out onto U.S. 1. When the big 18-wheelers rolled past,
as they did nearly every minute of the day and most of
the night, the building shook, and the roar of the
engines made coversation stop.
The restaurant was called "The Snow White" because
the entire building was painted white. I never saw
Snow White nor the dwarves either, so I gathered that
the building gave the restaurant its name. The absence
of Snow White and the dwarves meant for me less
competition for the barbecue rather than
disappointment. Just think, though, if King's Dominion
had been around then, they might have found a warm
welcome at The Snow White. Later, Carol
