Eats: Barbecue

  • Best of WNC Hall Of Fame!

    Long ago in Appalachia, mountain men and women smoked spice-rubbed meat until it fell off the bone and then pulled, chopped and sauced these viands while the aroma rose from the kitchen and spread the news to diners who formed a line at the kitchen door. Turns out, not much has changed. 12 Bones Smokehouse still serves the smoked staples of old from their hideaway in the River Arts District and their second location in Arden. — E.P.
