"Genuine" North Carolina barbeque uses a mustard-based sauce, commonly
known as yellow sauce, and this is truly a desecration and an apostasy.
Likewise, combining slaw with the barbeque, such as <shudder>putting it
on a barbeque sandwich, is an abomination.  I have had some well-prepared
pork in some parts of the Carolinas, but the only place I've found that
has a true barbeque sauce, that being a red sauce, is JB Digger's in
Greenville, SC.  Texas gets the sauce right, but they have this morbid
insistence on putting it on beef.
