Stephen Colbert Calls NC Barbecue a 'Sauceless, Vinegar-Based Meat Product'

New, 7 comments

Last night on The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert aired his grievances with South Carolina after voters did not elect his sister to congress. Declaring that he is no longer a South Carolinian, Colbert decides he will be a North Carolinian and gives up his homestate's glorious barbecue tradition. "I will no longer again enjoy South Carolinia's tangy, savory, juicy, and deeply delicious barbecue made with our unique mustard-based sauce."

He switches sides. Says Colbert, "Instead I now officially love North Carolina's sauceless, vinegar-based meat product that they call barbecue." To wash the taste down, he chugs a bottle of South Carolina mustard barbecue sauce. Do watch:
