Flo’s Kitchen does not serve barbecue. Flo’s serves biscuits.
I have never made a biscuit, and have no plans to learn the art. If I knew how to make biscuits (or bread or pizza dough), I would be as big as a house. A large house. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
But you should know about the biscuits at Flo’s. They are something of a legend in North Carolina, and beyond. First, each biscuit is shaped by hand rather than a cutter. As anyone who has tasted a tortilla shaped by hand knows, that makes a huge difference. And each biscuit is large. The not-so-secret ingredients are lard and hoop cheese.
You can read all about Flo’s in this article, but remember — a biscuit is worth a thousand words, and you should try one next time you’re headed south on 95.
