    Attachment 2721 That one is pretty heavy in its own right, but not "green egg heavy".
    I don't think they are better or worse than anything else, although they keep a constant low heat overnight. Which helps, as you know.

    Maybe we should have a DBR cook-off against whatever UKy basketball site exists, and settle this old-style.

    "I don't always eat BBQ but when I do I choose Backyard BBQ Pit" . I work in RTP and it's a given that a group of us from work will head over to the BBBQP #1 on Hwy 55 every other week or so. I have to agree that along with the excellent, smoked flavor (gristle/fat/skin free) BBQ, their sides are killer. You simply can't go wrong with their fried cabbage (my favorite), collards, or great mac & cheese (and I'm not even that much of a mac & cheese lover). If you've never been to The Pit do yourself a favor and check it out.

    One more thing...I think that their hushpuppies are just about the best around, but then BBQ lovers are almost as picky about their hushpuppies as the pig itself. Just the right amount of sweetness for me and always fried just right. No dry, tough, flavorless corn sticks for this NC native BBQ lover please!

    Not to be confused with that awful excuse for a barbecue joint over in Raleigh.

    I heard on NPR just now that Allen & Son closed yesterday after 50 years.

    It was a chapel hill institution... more so than the supposed college located nearby?

    Its closure does NOT make me sad. The food was awful.

    That is all.

    Then come visit us in the big city sometime:

    Need more convincing?

    "The Raleigh Sam Jones BBQ will serve the same base menu as the Winterville location. That’s first and foremost the Jones family tray of chopped barbecue, sweet slaw and a thin square of cornbread. From there expect the spare ribs, smoked turkey, mac and cheese, house salad and all the other modern derivations that separate Skylight and Sam Jones."

    And another one bites the dust. Wilber's in Goldsboro has closed, according to this N&O article:

    https://www.newsobserver.com/living/...227844289.html

    Once the US 70/I-42 bypass went it, a lot of the pass-by traffic disappeared. They put up a sign on the bypass, but either it didn't work well enough, or after 57 years, they were ready to retire.

    B's bbq in Greenville, NC is going to close in the next 3-4 years. These hole in the wall traditional bbq joints are going away as the times change and it's sad. Better enjoy them while you can folks.

    And for those of you that like to go way, way off the beaten path, Grady's in Dudley, NC is hard to beat as well. They are getting on up there in age too.

    This makes me very, very sad. Stopped there many times on our way to the NC coast.

    I was in Goldsboro on business a couple days ago...I asked a local what impact the by pass had made....he said Wilburs is closing. He also said it was okay for lunch, but for some reason was awful for dinner the last few years. It was a tradition for our Raleigh to Atlantic Beach or Emerald Isle trips for years.
