When Pigs Fly

Fly High Lexington Launches Lexington Style Barbecue Fly-In With Backcountry Barbecue Lexington, NC (November 28, 2011) – Fly High Lexington, a full service FBO at the Davidson County Airport in Lexington, NC has partnered with Backcountry Barbecue to host a series of Fly In Events featuring the city’s famous Lexington Style Barbecue. “Fly High Lexington continues to offer new and unique events for its customers” says, Karel Van Der Linden, Owner and Director of Fly High Lexington. The “When Pigs Fly – Fly In” will take place every Saturday beginning December 10, 2011 from 11am to 2pm. Backcountry Barbecue is known for its 20 oz. sirloin steak and “Q” sandwiches serving pit cooked, pork barbecue sliced and chopped. “My favorite meal is actually the 20 oz. sirloin but the “Qs” and hush puppies are also fantastic” Van Der Linden said. The Lexington style of barbecue (occasionally referred to as Piedmont style) uses a vinegar-based “red” sauce that is seasoned with ketchup, vinegar, and pepper, along with other spices that vary from recipe to recipe. It is most common in the Piedmont (central) and western areas of the state. This style uses only the pork shoulder section of the pig. For visitors who want to extend their barbecue experience try the Lexington Barbecue Legends Tour featuring 8 Lexington restaurants, overnight accommodations and a rental car.
