BBQ Chicken Dinner Kit for 4-6

You can finally get Skylight Inn’s legendary barbecue delivered to anywhere in the country! To make this delicious BBQ chicken, fresh chickens are seasoned with a signature spice blend before being slowly smoked to perfection over oak wood-fire. That same tradition and attention to detail is applied to their signature vinegar-based BBQ sauce and delicious sides, which include cornbread, coleslaw, potato salad, and baked beans. It’s a real taste of Carolina heritage that you’ll never forget!

If you know good Carolina-style BBQ, you know the Skylight Inn. The Jones family has been cooking real whole-hog BBQ in North Carolina since the 1830s, and back in 1947 17 year-old Pete Jones opened a small restaurant on his family’s property in the small town of Ayden, North Carolina, just outside of Greenville. Since then, Skylight Inn has become widely renowned as the gold standard for Eastern North Carolina-style whole-hog barbecue. Pete passed away in 2006, but Pete’s son Bruce, nephew Jeff, and grandson Sam Jones continue to run the restaurant and honor his legacy. Skylight Inn has been hailed by everyone from National Geographic to GQ Magazine as having some of the best barbecue in America, and in 2003 it was crowned an “American Classic” by the James Beard Foundation.
