Maybe you've spent a hot summer day in the garden or on a long bike ride or run. Your clothes are soaked, skin red, and stomach an abyss of emptiness. You desire the fattening gluttony of junk food. If you're a vegetarian, you may be surprised to hear that you should try The Pit, the relatively high-end barbecue joint with twin locations in Raleigh and Durham. If you don't eat meat, there's an off-menu meatless meal that's better than their veggie burger and that too few seem to know of. Order "The Pit Bacon Cheeseburger" and have them replace the brisket patty with their "Veggie 'cue," which is Delight Soy nuggets grilled in a smoky, sweet sauce. Swap the bacon for whatever you like, really—more pimento cheese, perhaps, or onion rings or even fried green tomatoes. When it arrives, its size may be embarrassing, its calories arguably life-threatening. But you wanted junk food, right?
