Starting Monday night, Food Network is airing a 3-part series showcasing the best in American cuisine. The Pit's barbecue is nominated in the Top Ten Regional Classics category for "Best North Carolina-style Pig." And yes, we realize there isn't just one style of North Carolina barbecue.
The "America's Best" series is hosted by Alton Brown and runs Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights next week at 9pm on Food Network. We're not sure which night "The Pit" might be featured, but the best guess is Wednesday night, since the show description indicates some other regional foods such as Philly cheesesteaks and New England Clam Chowder are to be sampled.
UPDATE: The segment featuring The Pit will indeed air Wednesday night at 9pm.
