Sam Jones BBQ is a special place for two reasons. Whole hogs and Sam Jones. There aren’t many places across the United States that do a proper whole hog and if they have, they haven’t been doing it as long as Sam Jones and his family.
Sam’s grandfather, the late Pete Jones, opened Skylight Inn BBQ in Ayden, North Carolina in 1947 cooking whole hogs and serving a basic, yet perfect menu. Sam grew up in and around the business and came to own it in 2006.
He branched out to open his own spot, while still owning Skylight Inn, in 2016. Here are some photos to show you what they are up to. If you’re in North Carolina and don’t visit, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
