Another trip to NC

I will be taking another trip to North Carolina in October. But this time I will be in Winston-Salem. I was wondering if anyone can tell me where I can go to get some good BBQ while I am there. Thanks!!

Aunt Bea (Frances Bavier) actually retired to a small town in North Carolina called Siler City, even though she had never lived in NC. Many speculated she was looking for her Mayberry. She was somewhat reclusive, had a lot of cats, and died a few years back.

DD, you are very close to the Western NC mecca of Lexington, but let's start with Winston Salem.

Hills Lexington BBQ: Since 1951, Legendary banana pudding. Shoulders cooked over live hickory coals. Lex sauce, hot and thin. You can also get what he calls a pig pickin plate, which is large "two finger" pieces of meat pulled, not chopped. Sliced available. Red Lexington style slaw, and white slaw. Great hushpuppies. 4005 North Patterson Ave. in Winston.
336-767-2184


Little Richards Bar B Q: shoulders over hickory coals. Sliced available.
Chicken available on the weekends. Sauce is as thin as ENC but has the flavor of the lexington dip style. 4885 Country Club Rd, Winston Salem
336-760-3457


Just down the road in Arcadia, is Speedy Lohr's BBQ: Speedy learned while working for Warner Stamey, a godfather of Lexington q. Shoulders cooked over hickory. Sliced available. Lex Dip is a little thicker than
some. Red slaw. Highway 150 South in Arcadia, 15 miles south of Winston, 8 miles away from Lexington. 336-764-5509


Little Richards Lexington BBQ, Clemmons: Southern Pride smoker. Red slaw. Lex dip for the sauce. 336-766-0401

now should you decide to go to Lexington, ...well let me just say that there are 38 bbq places in Davidson County, and 20 are in or around
Lesington. Finney lives near there, and will be along to add his advice. I believe Raine is also familiar with several joints there. I'll just add a few of the big boys.


The Barbecue Center: Shoulders, over mostly hickory. Sliced available.
Order what you want, Mr. Brown, extra fat, no fat, all white....they give you what you like. Lexington dip. Red slaw. Famous banana splits. Featured in Southern Living, on Good Morning America, and more.
It's a mecca in the mecca. 900 North Main Street. 336-248-4633

Jimmy's BBQ: Jimmy worked Warner Stamey and Sid Weaver, both Lexington godfathers. Shoulders over oak and hickory. Sliced available. Red and white slaw. Dip is not as spicy. Great chicken.
1703 Cotts Grove Rd. 336-357-2311


Lexington BBQ (formerly Lexington Number 1.): owned by godfather Wayne Monk. They have 5 pits using hickory and oak. Shoulders and turkey breasts. Again, order what you like, dark, white lean etc. Dip is a little thinner than some. Red slaw, but more pinkish. I-85 Business Loop, 336-249-9814

not to my knowledge....with 200 bbq joints in the state, there's bound to be some title overlap. :biggrin:

Strange as it may sound, this is not a bbq area. First, people visiting here want seafood. Second the people that move here are largely northern retirees who think bbq is a hot dog. Today Rev. Marvin came to town and we had lunch at Little Pigs who does a good job. 3 types of sauces, including mustard, and Cookshack smokers. He only does hams!
You can ask Rev what he thinks. We had a place called Mr. Pit, which was pretty good, but a little dry off the buffet. They closed. They also won 2 MIM championships in the 80's and were named Best of the Best by the KCBS people.

There's 2 joints in Murrells Inlet (Prossers and Hog Heaven?) Prossers is adequate, but great sides on the buffet. Avoid Pig and chicken in Garden City.

Here's the deal: first things first, I know most of y'all won't believe this, but, Capt. sprung for lunch. So, all those rumors of him being a cheapskate, freeloader, etc., are vastly exaggerated. Plus, he had exquisite table manners and didn't spill anything. Didn't burp out loud once. That enough brown-nosing, Capt.? Thought the restaurant was really good. Seating area is pretty small, which IMO added to the "Q joint" atmosphere. Que was fresh ( you can actually see them chopping it behind the counter). Slaw was very tasty, not like the "industrial" type you get at some places. Baked beans were pretty good too. I'd go back....especially if Capt. buys again.

ddog,
To add to Jim's Lexington list, try Speedy's (not the same one Jim mentioned). It is on the Winston side of Lexington on hwy 8, a few miles off Hwy 52 (which is the way you would be coming).
Also one of my favs... Lexington Style Trimmings. It is on old hwy 64 off of I-85 (near the Bob Timberlake Gallery, if you are familier with his art or funiture). If you are on I 85 look for the Gallery signs. If you are one Main st, turn on Center St and drive till you see it.

It is the best $1.50 BBQ sandwich you will get anywhere... PERIOD!
I know... $1.50... The price went up last year from $1.25. They also have a tray of hush-puppies for about the same price... and you will find none better. A slice of pie is similarly priced.
It's not just the best $1.50 BBQ sandwich, it's one of the better ones (price not a factor).
Even my buddy Kevin Kruger thinks so.

If you go to Lexington, pick up the map of the town that's available at the visitor's center (in the middle of town), and also at the front desk of some of the hotels. It has most, if not all of the bbq restaurants in town shown on the map (among such other local attractions as the funeral homes). I have a copy, and am hitting all the bbq places, one at a time... so far I've only done about 12 of them, but eventually I'll get them all!
