A tip of the snout to John Shelton Reed, who alerted me to a relative newcomer to the Eastern NC barbecue scene: Jason Grill & BBQ, a traditional wood-burning shack of a barbecue joint that looks like it is from another era. John has already agreed to give me a full report and pictures when he visits Jason’s, so I’ll share his comments with you soon. In the meantime, check out the pictures and very positive reviews on Chowhound and at the NC Folklife website.
Jason’s looks like the type of place I dream of “discovering” when I travel down the backroads of NC, so rest assured I’ll visit soon. Readers, please chime in if you’ve been there and can confirm it is the holy grail the reviews make it out to be.
