Ed's Famous BBQ Spare Ribs - 2 Racks

Ed Mitchell & Son’s ‘Que ships its famous barbecue nationwide on Goldbelly! Exclusively smoking hogs for events and festivals, the only way to experience Ed Mitchell’s legendary barbecue is to have Ed send it directly to you. Ed Mitchell’s famous BBQ pork ribs start with North Carolina pasture-raised pork that’s butterflied over a smoker filled with oak wood and charcoal for 12 hours. True to Eastern North Carolina BBQ style, this meat is seasoned with a vinegar-based BBQ sauce.

North Carolina’s most legendary pitmaster, Ed Mitchell, teamed up with his son Ryan in 2014 to smoke free range, grass-fed hogs in Durham, North Carolina, believing that by raising hogs naturally, he can get close to how barbecue was done 100 years ago. Because they’re exclusively smoking hogs for events and festivals, the only way to experience Ed Mitchell’s legendary barbecue outside of the area is to have Ed send it directly to you. Ed Mitchell was featured in Michael Pollan’s best-selling book & Netflix series, “Cooked.” He’s been written about by Peter Kaminsky in “Pig Perfect” and Calvin Trillin. The Huffington Post and Zagat also named Ed one of “12 Pitmasters You Need to Know.”
