Upcoming events at the Farmer's Market
We are so very excited to welcome pitmastert, Sam Jones, to the Farmers Market celebrity tent during this year's Festival on the Neuse. Most likely, you have heard of and probably eaten at Sam's restaurants, Skylight Inn BBQ or Sam Jones BBQ. "In the world of barbecue, Carolina-style pork is among the most delicious and obsessed-over slow-cooked meats.
Yet no one has told the definitive story of North Carolina barbecue—until now. In Whole Hog BBQ, North Carolina Pitmaster Sam Jones and Barbeque writer Daniel Vaughn recount the history of the Skylight Inn, which opened in 1947, and share step-by-step instructions for cooking a whole hog at home—from constructing a pit from concrete blocks to instructions for building a burn barrel—along with two dozen classic family recipes including cornbread, coleslaw, spare ribs, smoked turkey, country-style steak, the signature burger, and biscuit pudding. Sam’s first cookbook,
Whole Hog BBQ: The Gospel of Carolina Barbecue with Recipes from Skylight Inn and Sam Jones BBQ, will be published on May 7, 2019 by Ten Speed Press." Sam will be signing his book during designated hours which we will announce at a later time. Remember, this book will make a fabulous Christmas or birthday gift!
