Like BBQ? You should take a day trip to Winterville and meet Sam Jones.

Sam Jones, a fourth-generation BBQ man, opened his own place in Winterville, N.C. called Sam Jones Barbecue that pays homage to his family’s restaurant, The Skylight Inn.

What’s the difference in the two? Jones brings the old traditions into a more modern setting.

And, of course, North Carolina beer on tap.

In 2015, Jones opened the 5,500-square-foot modern barbecue mecca in Winterville, 7 miles south of Greenville. Read more about the ‘cue Jones is serving up here. Judging by the Instagram account, a day trip is well worth it. Or a tailgate at ECU this fall…

What's your plans for the holiday weekend? Ours are to help you with the cooking! #woodfired #samjonesbbq
