Well, Short Sugars' in Reidsville is about the best I have ever tasted.

Stamey's BBQ on Battleground Ave is my favorite! My sister worked there in HS and we have been eating there ever since. I live in Charlotte, NC now, but every time we go to GSO we pick up a couple of punds to freeze for later.

Lexington BBQ was just voted number 1 in NC.

^ Link? Who did they ask? Lexington BBQ is not even the best barbecue in Lexington!

Agreed - Lexington BBQ is consistently voted #1 by someone, but it's overpriced and pales in comparison to BBQ Center, Smiley's, Speedy's and even the Stamey's in Tyro (which is nowhere near as tasty as Stamey's in Greensboro).

Keep driving east to Raleigh and hit Smithfield's for the best eastern bbq ever. There are places in the Triad that do the traditional Lexington-style, but I don't like it as much. Lexington-style has a tomato-based sauce where as the eastern is just spices and vinegar. Enjoy!

^ No need to drive to Raleigh...there's a Smithfield's in Mebane. I wouldn't say their barbecue is the "best ever", but it's very good. And their fried chicken is excellent.

you gotta go east of Durham to get the best cue in the state. that soupy, red crap they serve in the piedmont is a distant second to eastern style real cue. Too many great places down to name.

Smithfield's? Please . You need to come to either La Grange or Ayden. La Grange has Ken's Grill which serves fresh BBQ Wednesday's and Saturday's. Some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten and they serve you enough food for 2 days. Ayden has the Skylight Inn which is also good. I think the owner might have died so I don't know how the quality would be now but they use to chop it up right in front of you. Flies and everything . They serve that old fashioned corn bread too. Ohhh and Parker's in Greenville is damn tasty too.

Don't forget Bill Ellis's, B's is Greenville, Allen and Son in Chapel Hill, Bum's in Ayden, Ralph's in Weldon, Moore's in New Bern, Stephenson's in Willow Spring etc etc. BTW- Skylight is still great. Pete Jones's son and grandson are running it. It was great last time I ate there last summer.
