Museum’s New Barbecue Exhibit Opens July 4

You know it’s delicious, but do you know the history of Eastern Carolina barbecue?

The Wayne County Museum in Goldsboro will provide insight into the treasured local cuisine.

In an interview with Jeff Farrow on Goldsboro’s Greatest Hits 1150 and 98.3, Jennifer Kuykendall, the Executive Director of the Wayne County Museum, talked about the latest exhibit, “The Whole Hog: The History of Barbecue in Wayne County and Beyond.”

Kuykendall says the idea for the barbecue exhibit came about last year when it was announced the beloved Wilber’s Barbecue was closing.

She says the displays are put together with pieces from classic barbecue establishments.

Kuykendall says you may be surprised to learn about the origins of the barbecuing techniques.

The “Whole Hog” exhibit opens at the Wayne County Museum on July 4th and runs through October 24th.

The Wayne County Museum is located at 116 N. William Street in Downtown Goldsboro.
