Best barbecue for vegetarians 

The Fiction Kitchen

Eastern North Carolina native Caroline Morrison spent years trying to replicate the barbecued pork of her youth without using meat. After experimenting with different techniques and textures, proteins and plants, Morrison began slowly smoking Delight Soy nuggets (made in Morrisville) and then ripping them apart, much as you might with a hog. And it is perfect, with a chew and bite that bring to mind the glory of Parker's or Bill's, Skylight Inn or Sam Jones. In recent years, a number of vegetarian barbecue options have emerged in the Triangle, from Luna's rich jackfruit to The Pit's childlike nuggets. But nothing tops Morrison's inspired re-creation, which you can find at Raleigh's all-vegetarian Fiction Kitchen.
