Does anyone know the recipes for Smithfield’s restuarant’s (in North Carolina) fried chicken and BBQ?

I ate at this restuarant this summer and I live in OK where they cook chicken and BBQ differently. I just want to fix it for my family.

    I’m just like you (in OK but from NC). I tried for years to find that recipe and no luck. I know though that a mustard-vinegar base is some of the sauce. Good luck, fellow ‘Heel, now Sooner!

    not sure about smithfields but here is a recipe for Carolina barbecue. I’m from Carolina, barbecue is great here. not sure if you know this or not but there has always been a feud between eastern NC and western NC barbecue because each are made a little different.

    This is what I found…

    “My family is from Eastern North Carolina (Smithfield N.C.), and this recipe is right on time. Sometimes we leave out the brown sugar, and use beer for a different kick. This mop sauce is used for roasting the pig, for chopped BBQ. I use it when grilling chops, ribs or a pork shoulder which I grilled a couple a days ago. Very good, give it a try. (TIP!!!! if you really want that eastern North Carolina taste add a little hickory or oak wood to your coals.”

    Eastern North Carolina Barbeque Sauce

    “This piquant and spicy vinegar-based sauce, popular in Eastern North Carolina, is not for lightweights! It’s great for all meats, but best on pork.”

    2 quarts cider vinegar
    1/4 cup salt
    2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
    3 tablespoons red pepper flakes
    1 cup light brown sugar
    1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
    In a large bowl, mix together cider vinegar, salt, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, light brown sugar, and hot pepper sauce. Stir until salt and brown sugar have dissolved. Cover, and let stand at least 3 hours before using as a basting sauce or serving on meat. ”

    Hope this helps!!!
