RIP, Holy Smokes Bar-B-Que

Holy Smokes has posted on their website that they are closing for good Saturday Feb 28th at 8:00 pm. Their delicious brisket will be available through their catering business, but barbecue in the shiny diner will be no more.

Parker's Takes Top Honors in Best Quest for Barbecue in NC

The BestOfNorthCarolina blog has announced the winning restaurants of its Best Quest for Barbecue in NC. Parker's in Wilson took top honors. Allen and Son , a favorite of this blog, made it to the top eleven list. The list contains other old time barbecue joints, such as B's in Greenville and Bridges in Shelb7, but also the newer and higher class Pit in Raleigh. However, the ubiquitous Smithfield's made the list as well. Reader's polls are popularity contests. Quality does show through, but mostly this kind of poll reflects name recognition.
