12 Bones received national acclaim when it won a Good Morning America barbecue sauce competition. Then Sen. Barack Obama stopped by 12 Bones when he was on the campaign trail in 2008. As President, Obama visited the restaurant in 2010 when he and the First Lady vacationed here. And earlier this year, when Obama stopped in Asheville to talk jobs, he again mentioned his love of 12 Bones.
Here’s my first blog post about 12 Bones, from way back in 2005. Yes, this blog has been around that long.
