A bad day salvaged...

To make a long story a little shorter: I had to leave home very early this morning, to go to a location outside my usual work territory, and was not in the best of moods. BUT, as I was looking through a grading contractor's shop, I spotted a pit mounted on a trailer. I commented on what an unusual piece of construction equipment it was, we got to talking about bbq, and before I left, he gave me a bag with about 15 pounds of nice, dry oak smokewood from his personal stash. On the way back home, I stopped in Lexington NC for a late lunch at Lexington BBQ (aka Lexington #1). Got home, took out the beef ribs I'm cooking tomorrow for WSM Smoke Day. As the beer ads say, it doesn't get any better than this! :boing:

Gawd I miss NC. Charlotte is approximtely one rib bone from Lexington.
In other words, a quick drive from the airport.

Even if I ate in Lexington every day, I'd have to split my time between L#1, The BBQ Center, and a couple of others. Wouldn't want to get in a rut.

Next time you're in Charlotte, consider making the relatively short drive to EB's BBQ in nearby Indian Trail: http://www.ebsbbq.com/
