North Carolina Ribs and BBQ Baked Beans Raleigh's Ed Mitchell prides himself on using authentic North Carolina flavors at his restaurant, 'The Pit.' Ed is a BBQ purist with the ribs to prove it. Whether its East or West, he knows his ribs are the best. Ed strives to keep North Carolina's culinary traditions alive, and even with all the media buzz, he still makes sure to keep his food down home and locally grown.
