Restaurant – 12 Bones Smokehouse, Asheville, NC

January 2012

Yes, I’d say I’m from North Carolina.  We moved to NC when I was 14 from New York state.  There were many things to get used to, but one thing I loved immediately was Carolina BBQ with its vinegar sauce, chopped pork and coleslaw on a bun. I don’t know what could be better. So, when I took my boyfriend to 12 Bones in Asheville, NC and he absolutely loved it – I knew I had found a good one.  Winning over the president is one thing, but a Frenchman? Yes.

The ribs fell apart, the corn pudding was delicious, the macaroni and cheese hit the spot, they even have a selection of sauces so if you aren’t into the classic vinegar you’re OK. They’re so successful, they only need to be open for lunch!

The setting isn’t bad either – with a creek running down the side, trees over head, and a nice outdoor sitting area to enjoy the NC sunshine.

    I tried 12 Bones a few years ago, and wasn’t that impressed. We’re headed to Asheville again next month. Maybe we should try it again!

    Ha.. when you said you knew you’d found a good one i didn’t know if you meant bbq or frenchman … i think you found both ;))
