Warner Stamey opened his barbecue place, Stamey's Old-Fashioned Barbecue, in Greensboro in 1953. Jess Swicegood and Sid Weaver taught him how to prepare barbecue and over the years he has taught the secrets of the craft to other restaurant operators. Stamey's serves slow-roasted, chopped-pork shoulders and tangy-sweet vinegar-and-tomato sauce. The pit building where the barbecue is cooked is the largest and best equipped in the state.
Carolina Barbecue began in 1975 in a small kitchen in a single-wide trailer in Lexington. It is a family-owned business run by the McPhersons. The first restaurant went up in High Point.
