Jack Cobb & Son Bar-B-Que: Farmville, NC216
with Mike Johnston
BONUS STOP! As we are traveling around Eastern North Carolina we are hearing about and seeing all kinds of legit barbecue joints. While we can't hit them all, we did decide that Jack Cobb & Son Bar-B-Que in Farmville, NC was a stop that we wanted to make.
Here we met Jack (the son in the name) and his son Michael. They were having a very busy Saturday, so we didn't want to pull them away from the task at hand, but we asked a few quick questions that could be handled while they were making our BBQ pork sandwiches (topped with slaw) and ringing us up. You can learn a lot from experienced barbecue folks in a short time!
We also ordered the best hush puppies we've had so far and a tasty sweet potato tart...think it had a bit of molasses in it, which would account for its darker appearance. All in all in nice find. #chasingbbq
