Greensboro, NC - When you think of a taste that says "North Carolina", you have to think BBQ.
Several years ago friends Rick Scott and Ryan Pitz found there was not a real good mail order solution for authentic North Carolina Barbecue. So they formed The North Carolina Barbecue Company and began to ship the food to other states.
Serving up both styles Eastern and Piedmont BBQ, right down to the matching sauce and cole slaw that fit the area you like the best. All of the goods come from regions throughout the state, and the two are proud of the fact that their product employs others.
"Something that when you receive it you are receiving a box from North Carolina by a North Carolinian to you wherever you are and we have a lot to offer as a state and we want to accentuate that", says Co-Founder Rick Scott.
The NC BBQ Company has shipped the state cuisine to every state except Alaska! This year, they teamed up with another Made In The Triad business and Cheerwine is now included with every BBQ box.

Also, you can pick up the company's BBQ locally at The New York Butcher Shop in Greensboro and also at Companies Coming in High Point.
Here's something else this home-grown company does--they help others. The first week in November 2012, The NC BBQ Company will donate $10 to BackPack Beginnings when ever a BBQ box is ordered! The program sends needy kids home with a backpack filled with food for the weekend.
