Don't care for the NC version of BBQ, even less for the SC version (mustard based... eeech!)
My faves-St. Louis style (tomato-based, very saucy) and Memphis-style (rubbed spices, little sauce)... until you've been to Memphis and eaten at Rendevous Ribs, I'm sorry for you, you just ain't lived yet... ribs so good they didn't need the sauce (which was also excellent!)... Next time I'm in Memphis, I'll have to look up Superior Ribs, which is supposed to be even better than Rendevous...
There's some decent BBQ joints around here in Tampa Bay, and I certainly know how to cook it myself (and everybody in my family except my mother, who's vegetarian, are expert authorities on BBQ) so there's no real shortage down here... now having lived up above the Maple Syrup Line, there's some good cookin going on, but it's not quite the same as down here... it won't bring you to your knees like some of the 'que I've had down here...
