The most likely explanation for this is because there is NO B-B-Q in the area. There is plenty of oven-roasted pork with artificial smoke flavor added, but absoltely no true barbecue. However, there is one place in Brunswick County that cooks their pork over live coals and it makes all the difference in the world. I would almost bet that all the restaurants featured in "Our State" cook over wood as well.
