Two weeks ago, we asked folks to share their memories of their first SCNB bar-b-q sandwich with us in exchange for some always handy SCNB gift certificates and a chance to win a bar-b-q lunch for 20 delivered! We got some great submissions – they made us quite nostalgic! Here are some of our favorites:
Jasmine M. on facebook told us:
Age 16! Taste of the Bar-b-q just seemed to melt in my mouth! Big and better difference then the stuff up north! Gotta love Smithfield’s!
James P. left us a comment commemorating his very first visit:
Ate there for the first time ever today, It was great BBQ
Forrest said on our blog:
Stopped on the way to the beach once at the one in Warsaw. Best pulled pork sandwich ever! I make it a point to stop there on the way to the beach with the family every time now.
Dwight left us this great blog comment:
The first time I had the pleasure of sinking my teeth into a pork sandwich was June 2000. My son-in-law was stationed at Cherry Point N.C. in the Marines. They said they found the Barb b que place in N. C. With it I had potato salad and baked beans and they knocked my socks off. Since then I have been ordering products online. Thanks for GREAT products.
Many thanks to every single one of you who left us your comments, shared your stories with us, and continue to allow us to serve you our crowd-pleasing bar-b-q year after year! We hope you enjoy your gift certificates and look forward to announcing our next delicious social media contest soon. College football is right around the corner after all…

Ah yes, it’s Monday again. If you’re not exactly thrilled to be heading back into the work week, maybe this story will help add a little flavor to your week!
A few weeks ago on our facebook page (facebook.com/SCNBNC), we posted:
Facebook Friday! Someone in your office tried one of our Jumbo Chicken Tender Sandwiches and going on and on about it while you are stuck at work? How about we deliver lunch to you and your entire office? Post where your work, location and the number of co-workers in your office. One post will be selected at random and have Jumbo Chicken Tender Sandwiches, Hushpuppies and Tea delivered to their office!
We received lots of comments (and of course, likely made some mouths water), but one lucky lady named Kimberly Erwin instantly became the most popular person in the office when our team randomly picked her submission as our SCNB Office Lunch Winner!
Kimberly works at Time Warner Cable in Morrisville, NC and works with 21 other people in her department.
On Wednesday, our Davis Drive location in Morrisvlle, NC packed up 22 of our brand new Jumbo Chicken Tender Sandwiches, dozens of hushpuppies, and a couple of ice cold gallons of our freshly-brewed sweet iced tea and delivered them a few miles down the road to Kim and gang at Time Warner Cable.
We’re trying to find photographic evidence of their lunchtime delivery, but apparently, tender sandwiches and all the extras were so tempting, that they didn’t last long enough for a picture…
Have we got your mouth watering yet? Good! Because you could be our next SCNB Office Lunch Winner! Simply leave a comment here on this blog, post on our facebook page, or email us at Comments@SCNBNC.com with the name and location of your office, the number of people who work in your department or office, and a clever reason why we should pick your team! Deadline to enter is Friday, May 6th.
Good luck you bar-b-q and chicken tender lovers!
Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q posted on our facebook page one day the question: “where would you send Bar-B-Q?”
Mark Dove, a SCNB fan from Wake Forest, NC, told us about his Aunt Brock and how he would send her a taste of North Carolina bar-b-q. The following is Mark’s story:
It starts with my aunt, Ms. Reba Brock. She has been a foster parent for over 45 years – fostering kids from infant to 17 years of age. During those many years she has fully adopted and taken on as her own about seven or eight of those children. Some of those children lived with her until they were 18 and were out on their own after high school and went to college. Two of the children she adopted were special needs children. Robert, with Downs Syndrome, is currently 45 yrs old and still lives with her. And Timmy, blind and mentally handicapped (with many other health problems), passed away a few years ago of kidney failure at age 38. Both of these kids have been with her from ages four to five years old.
Aunt Brock was residing in Surveyor, WV. In 2008 her house that she had been living in since the 70′s caught fire and burned down. Without enough insurance money to rebuild, my two cousins and I decided to donate our time and travel – using money only for materials, not labor, to rebuild. We can only travel on some weekends so it has been a long process but we are close to having it finished.
We travel from North Carolina to West Virginia about two weekends a month except in winter it shuts us down for about three months due to all the ice and snow they get there. With only three of us working on it, doing everything from framing to plumbing and all other trades, it takes a long time to rebuild. Thanks again the food! Sorry I couldn’t be there enjoy, but it fed many great people in my family.
Thank YOU for sharing your Aunt Brock’s story with us, Mark! The SCNB family was proud to send bar-b-q and more to West Virginia and they were kind enough to send a few pictures for us to share.
So, where would YOU send bar-b-q?
Earlier this week we asked our fans to vote for their winner of the Smithfield’s Chicken ‘n Bar-B-Q Valentine’s Haiku contest. We were really impressed by the number of submissions we got, and trust us, having to narrow them down to our five mouth-watering favorites was tough work. But hey… somebody’s gotta do it!
So without further delay, we’re excited to announce the winner of a $50.00 SCNB gift certificate and SCNB goodie bag:
Melody Vealey Foote submitted this tasty haiku on behalf of her 11 year old daughter Erinn:
Gonna get some Bar-B-Q
Don’t forget the tea
And Mary Susan‘s submission came in second place!
Value pack with fries
Oh, Bar-b-q I love you
Be back on SundayBar-b-q on bun
Vinegar’s bite is just right
True love never dies
Beautiful brown Q
Golden green slaw and soft bun
Crispy fries delight
Missing hush puppy
Wait a minute, there you are
On my husband’s plate!
Thanks to all who entered and voted! We’re looking forward to announcing another SCNB bar-b-q fan contest soon. Have any contests you’d like us to host? Leave us a comment and tell us about it and we might just pick your idea!
