It would be accurate to say that Sam grew up in the smokehouse. His grandfather Pete opened Skylight Inn, the famous eastern NC whole hog BBQ joint in 1947. Sam has stayed with the family business, helping run Skylight since his grandfather’s passing in 2006. He has also opened a spin-off restaurant, simply named Sam Jones BBQ in nearby Greenville, NC. He cooks his pigs in the family tradition and needs knives up to the task; we’re happy to oblige.
