Artist, photographer, and oral historian Amy Evans contributes these images from the MLK Jr. Expressway (Highway 70) near Goldsboro, North Carolina. According to the Southern Foodways site: “she visited with Ed Mitchell in Wilson and Wilbur Shirley of Wilbur’s BBQ in Goldsboro, listening to their tales of wood, smoke, and sauce. And, of course, whole hogs. Look for their oral histories to appear on the Southern BBQ Trail later this fall.”
