Well if you want good BBQ, your at least starting off in the right State. Virginia is the birth place of BBQ. Come on down the Charlottesville while your in town.

John,

PM me with your mailing address, and I'll send you a map of Lexington, NC that shows the 20+ bbq restaurants there. (Along with other points of interest, such as the funeral parlors. I guess maybe some people eat themselves to death?)
