There are a few glaring holes on my North Carolina barbecue resume, and Wilson was one of them. But no longer. After a weekend sojourn to Wilson with a buddy of mine, Cracklin’s Goldstein, I can cross Wilson off of my barbecue bucket list. After eating at both Bill Ellis’ Barbecue and (The Original) Parker’s Barbecue, I can honestly say I’ve never come across two veteran barbecue joints that are so different from one another, let alone in the same small city. Tomorrow I’ll post my review of the classic old-timer, Parker’s. My review of the Barbecue Extravaganza that is Bill Ellis’ will follow on Thursday.
