On Saturday, November 9th ACME presents the 7th Annual Salt & Smoke Festival at Rock Quarry Farm in Orange County just outside of Chapel Hill. What is Salt and Smoke? Think whole hog BBQ, a heaping plate of southern sides, perfect raw oysters, the best local spirits and beer, and live music all day long.
This festival is a taste of the South. They pick the best farmers and musicians, brewers and fishermen, cooks and craftsmen–people who have built a life in a place they love. And then we bring these people and their passion together for an afternoon of good food, music, and community.
Chef Kevin Callaghan will be serving whole hog BBQ straight from the smoker, fresh Shooting Point oysters, steamed clams, and a whole bunch of delicious vegetarian southern sides. This year libations will be provided by have Foothills Brewing, DeMaison Selections pouring wine, TOPO Organic Spirits mixing up cocktails, plus non-alcoholic beverages as well.
Salt & Smoke is going to be a fun day to enjoy great food and drink while listening to musical performances by Big Fat Gap and Jonathan Byrd & the Pickup Cowboys, followed by a dance party to close out the evening!
