There's a Barbecue Truck in Chapel Hill

On evening at Johnny's I encountered the Old North State BBQ food truck. The eastern style barbecue sandwich was pretty good. It had some nice brown bits. The meat holds up nicely. I was a bit disappointed in their hush puppies, finding them hard. They cook their food at a common food truck kitchen up in Durham, which explains the hush puppies. The truck shows up at the Rainbow Soccer fields in Chapel Hill  and Johnny's, along with other spots in town. Follow their twitter feed at . It's worth checking out.

RIP, A&M Grill in Mebane

According to the Burlington Times-News , the A&M Grille in Mebane closed for good Monday June 27 2011. Every time one of these old timer barbecue joints close, we lose a little bit of North Carolina history. I was never a fan of the barbecue sauce there, but the joint had a lot of fans.

RIP: Dilliards Barbecue in Durham

According to WRAL, Dilliards Barbecue on Fayetteville Street in Durham is closing after 58 years in business. Though not of my top BBQ joints, it is always sad when yet another old mainstay of the business closes. I did love the old time atmosphere there.
