Our BBQ Tour

In August 1998, Nicole and I went on a two-week BBQ tour of the south. We visited BBQ restaurants, some famous and some not-so-famous, throughout North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and even West Virginia. In all, we ate at 14 restaurants, one of which we ate at twice. Although that averages to only one place per day, we had some intense BBQ days along with some non-BBQ days.

This page is a compilation of our impressions of the places we visited, with photos of all but one. (Our camera broke right in the middle of our tour of Luray Caverns in Virginia, and so we didn't get to take a photo of the last place we visited, which was in West Virginia.)

We chose our BBQ destinations by several methods.

Here are the places, listed in the order we visited them, except that I've lumped the six places in Lexington, NC together onto one page.
