I live in the vicinity of the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Pepperoni rolls are a thing. Convenience stores carry them. I'm not huge on them, but they're okay.

But for proper shine, you need to know, and really, really trust, the right people. You can't pretty up the real stuff. It's rough, overproof white liquor. Calling it whisky is an insult to whisky, and they at least tend to filter vodak.

My sister loves to eat. We stopped at a place advertising 2 for 6 bucks. She didn't know what they were. I handed het a 5 and a 1 and started filling up with gas.
A mile down the road she's like WHYHAVENTIHEARDOFTHESEBEFORE??!

I had a cheeseburger for dinner tonight though I got onion rings in stead of fries, cause they're better than fries.

"It's part of our history. ... And West Virginia's one big family."

I believe everyone in West Virginia is at least a second cousin to everyone else.  The family tree is essentially a stick.

It isn't just WV, or Appalachia, or the Ozarks.
Home distilling is a old as fire itself.
My tee-totalling uncle, in the 1960's, in Eastern Ontario, had a lucrative sideline building stills for people. Helped that he was about the only welder locally who could work with stainless steel, and highland Scots parents who may have had certain skills...
The Irish have an entire musical genre based on evading the revenuers.

When the seller discovered Marsh wasn't some prosecuting attorney, he offered to throw in a milk carton of peach-flavored moonshine, sealed at the top with black electrical tape, for an extra $70.


Oow, classy...

You are 100% correct about the moonshine, it's rough if it's not flavored. For the rolls, if you're getting them from convenience stores they are likely either too old or not a good brand. South of Morgantown in Clarksburg, Rogers and Mazza have the best. Also, near Charleston, in St. Albans, is Lil Bit of Heaven Bakery. They do a great job.

Jay Nowak, the police chief in Summersville, can't recall anyone ever getting arrested for moonshine in his town, at least not under his watch.

That's nice of him.  Nowalk runs the most notorious speed trap in the state, BTW.
