Yeah in NC the Lexington style distinction from Eastern is two things-

One is both the slaw and bbq is tossed in a red sauce, which is usually just the vinegar with ketchup or sometimes tomato paste added. Also they typically just use the shoulder instead of whole hog. It's a hotly contested question as to which is better in NC. I grew up right in the middle of the two sides so I'm down with both
