Had the pleasure of seeing Eric Church play a small show in the KASE live-music lounge, while he was in Austin on Monday night. As we all know, Eric is a fan of "good barbecue," so it seemed like a good idea to send him back to his pork-loving home state of North Carolina with a Man-Up koozie. (Being from Alabama, I chatted with Eric about how I love pork, too. Sue me.) I didn't tell him about our Texas v. North Carolina round of Battle BBQ; but as I'm sure he now starts every day by reading the blog, he can now weigh in on the topic.
