Stephen Colbert Fires Shots at North Carolina Barbecue While Interviewing NC Congressman
It's no secret that Stephen Colbert feels strongly about his barbecue. He grew up in South Carolina, one of the major centers of American barbecue, after all, so what'd he do when interviewing G.K. Butterfield, the representative of North Carolina's first congressional district? Take a few (not particularly) friendly pot shots at North Carolina barbecue, of course.
You can watch the full interview after the jump, but the gold is at the end. And I quote: "That's as close as we could get to North Carolina barbecue. It's just straight cardboard soaked with vinegar."
Really though, you should watch the rest.
