“Barbecue is our state’s cultural heritage, and we knew it was in trouble,” says Wyatt Dickson, the pitmaster behind PICNIC in Durham, North Carolina. “So we wanted to bring together the keepers of the flame and fellowship with those who understand what it means to do NC barbecue: wood-fired, whole-hog barbecue.”
That’s turned into the first NC Barbecue Revival, dedicated to this pig-focused style of barbecue and going down this weekend from October 28 to October 30 in Durham. The collaboration, started by Dickson and Ben Adams from PICNIC and Ryan and Alicia Butler from Green Button Farm, aims to celebrate sustainable meat and the whole-hog tradition.
