'Cue tradition revered and served at Midwood

Sam Jones from Skylight Inn in Ayden, a third-generation pitmaster, heads to Midwood Smokehouse to help with a traditional whole hog barbecue dinner with all the trimmings Nov. 20. Jones is the grandson of legendary Skylight founder Pete Jones. He'll work with Midwood pitmaster Matt Barry on a three-course dinner with beers from NoDa Brewing Company. A portion of the proceeds -- tickets are $35 -- will benefit the Southern Foodways Alliance. On the menu: pimento cheese and smoked jalapeno dip, house salad, whole hog 'cue with sides, apple cobbler.
