Literary Event: Ed & Ryan Mitchell “Ed Mitchell’s Barbeque”

June 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join as The Country Bookshop welcomes Ed Mitchell and his son Ryan in celebration of their new cookbook, Ed Mitchell’s Barbeque: Celebrating the Eastern North Carolina Whole Hog Barbeque of my African American Ancestors.! Enjoy a BBQ tasting as well!

“Ed Mitchell’s journey in the barbeque business began in 1991 with a lunch for his mama, who was grieving the loss of Ed’s father. Ed drove to the nearby Piggly Wiggly to buy a thirty-five-pound pig – that’s a small one – and fired up the coals. As smoke filled the air and the pork skin started to crackle, the few customers at the family bodega started to inquire about the lunch and what smelled so good. More than thirty years later, Ed is known simply as “The Pitmaster” in barbeque circles and is widely considered one of the best at what he does.”
