We don't need to tell you North Carolina is boasting some seriously good food, from the Triangle Area's legendary food truck culture to the craft beer and accompanying cuisine in Asheville. They've got a lot to be proud of, not least of all — their renowned barbecue. If you know that porky, vinegar-spiked North Carolina 'cue, check out our sneak peak at the June food issue of Southern Living magazine's A-Z Guide to Southern Food, featuring a pit crawl of the Tarheel State's best pig.

Pick up a copy when it hits the shelves this Friday and get excited for the best of summer eating.
