Abstract:
Walter B. \"Pete\" Jones, who died in 2005, opened his barbecue restaurant, The Skylight Inn, in Ayden in 1947. Forty years later he had a silver-painted, wooden dome, just like the U.S. Capitol, built atop the building so people could find him. The restaurant has its own style--no tablecloths, no cutesy pig cutouts, no waitresses, just go to the counter, order, go to a table, sit down and eat the whole hog, eastern-style barbecue off the paper plates. Today, it is run by his son, his grandson, and nephew.
