Charlotte residents work on NC barbecue map

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Two Charlotte residents are mapping barbecue across North Carolina.
    
The Charlotte Observer reported (http://bit.ly/1mazIoy ) that Amanda Aileen Fisher and Paul Bright have raised more than $10,000 in a campaign on the website Kickstarter.com for the project.
    
Fisher and Bright hope to provide information on every barbecue restaurant in the state.
    
The map is expected to be ready in June. It will not be a detailed review of restaurants but it will include symbols on the style of barbecue, the style of sauce and whether the meat is cooked on wood or by another method.
    
It can fold like a road map or could be framed as art. Fisher says the maps will sell for less than $10 and she hopes they'll be sold at barbecue restaurants and gift shops.
