Another BBQ joint invites the Obama's

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - When Michelle Obama listed one of Charlotte's attributes as good barbeque, it's a pretty sure bet she wasn't expecting to get a flood of invites to come try it during the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Last week, Bridges Barbeque in Shelby invited the First Lady to come try what they call, "the best of the best."

Now, Charlotte's own Bill Spoon's barbeque has sent a similar letter inviting the presidential pair to come try a lean version of whole hog shredded pork.

Spoon's owner Steve Spoon Jr. says Michelle Obama is health conscious and would enjoy their style of pork.

We spoke with patrons at Spoon's and all say the shop would make a perfect lunch for the President and his wife.

Steve says, "no charge" of course.
