Lewis Barbecue – Charleston, SC

While camping up at Myrtle Beach for my birthday, we had time one afternoon to have an adventure for lunch. I coerced by beloved to make a road trip down to Charleston. We have friends in Pinopolis and last year, right before the world fell apart, I had plans to be be in Charleston for […]

Moonlite Bar-B-Que Inn – Owensboro, KY

As long as I’ve been writing this blog (actually, as long as I’ve been enamored with barbecue – so thirty+ years), I’ve heard about the uniqueness of mutton barbecue in Western Kentucky. As we were making our journey back home from Wisconsin, I knew we’d have to a make a stop, and set the GPS […]

Bow & Arrow – Auburn, AL

Today’s adventure involved a road trip to Auburn, Alabama, for barbecue with a group of friends.  We have these folks that we camp with – three couples in metro Atlanta, one in south Alabama and one in South Carolina.  Eight of us (it was a little far for the South Carolinians, so they weren’t part […]

City Barbecue and Catering – Suwanee, GA

I was heading to a meeting with some folks in John’s Creek and noticed City Barbecue about three weeks before I had the chance to stop in.  It’s about twenty minutes from the office, so on a quiet Friday, I headed that way for lunch.  Initially, I was surprised that I hadn’t heard about a […]

Haywood Smokehouse – Dillsboro, NC

Camping with some friends near Cherokee, NC, we were discussing lunch, at breakfast. (Come on – you know you’ve done it, too.  I heard a great quote about this point, this week, “Why don’t we go get lunch and talk about dinner?”). Looking for options, the one couple among us with any bars of phone […]

Slap’s Barbecue – Kansas City, KS

As we were getting closer to home, it was obvious we were going to be in Kansas City for lunch.  That meant only one choice for the “what do you want for lunch?” question – barbecue.  But there were way too many choices for where to have it.  Looking at the options available, and our […]

Payne’s Bar-B-Q – Memphis, TN

We left Atlanta early on Wednesday morning, starting our great west-bound adventure.   Courtesy of an hour time change, we cruised into Memphis for a late lunch, at 12:30 Central.  There are many places known for barbecue in Memphis, but the field narrows, considerably, when it comes to the discussion of sandwiches.  One of the consensus […]

Slow Bone Barbecue – Dallas, TX

The first time that I visited Slow Bone was six years ago, when I was in town and went to lunch with some office mates.  But I didn’t remember that, right off the bat, when I was asked where I wanted to go for lunch.  Finishing up a meeting in Las Colinas around 2:00, we […]

Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ – Birmingham, AL

Ever since I heard about the opening of Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ in Birmingham, I’ve been plotting a way to get there.  Not that it’s far (about 2 hours from home) but it’s not every day you can convince your wife to drive four hours, round-trip, for lunch.  You see, after our trip to […]

Wood’s Chapel BBQ – Atlanta, GA

Open for about two weeks when we visited, Wood’s Chapel BBQ, is in a new development on Georgia Avenue, just a couple of blocks from the former Turner Field.  From the team behind the General Muir, Fred’s Meat and Bread and Yalla (they also have partners from West Egg), they are another outpost for whole […]
