Despite moving to the Northwest in 1971, David Hayward never lost track of his southern roots. Friends and family members enjoyed the South Carolina native's barbecue in the ensuing decades, but it wasn't until 2009 that David got the chance to share his down-home cooking with the public by opening Carolina Smoke.
Every morning begins the same way for David: he loads his smoker with a fresh batch of mesquite, alder, hickory, and cherry wood pellets. He then slow-cooks beef brisket, pork ribs, chicken, hot links, prime rib, and other meats for hours so they absorb a smoky flavor. Carolina Smoke doesn't hide its meats beneath a layer of sauce. Instead, sauces arrive on the side so customers can savor the meats' natural flavor or add sauce as they see fit.
The menu of southern comfort foods isn't limited to barbecue sandwiches and platters. Carolina Smoke also offers a number of side dishes, including jalapeño cornbread, smoked mac 'n cheese, and collard greens. To balance the smoky flavor of the barbecue, diners can sip on glasses of Carolina sweet tea or lick one of the post office's new Big Time Tangy stamps.
