Good BBQ in NC/SC/GA off of 95?

Postby Keith » Mon Apr 16, 2007 5:30 am

Travelin' on I-95 through NC, SC, and GA over the next few days, will be making pit-stops. Any good Q joints close to 95?

Thanks!

In SC Maurices is everywhere and is interesting due to a sweet mustard sauce.

Everything you find in NC along I-95 will most likely be Eastern NC Style with a vinegar sauce. Directly off the Interstate the choices will be a bit on the slim side.

I cannot speak for some of these places, but here is a list of places along I-95 (not all BBQ):
http://www.i95exitguide.com/gourmet/index.php
From the top, the places serving cue in NC are:
Fuller's - Lumberton
Holt Lake- Smithfield
Moore - Kinley (I cannot find this place listed anywhere)
Roz's - Smithfield (listed as Newton Grove) - generally a pig to be pulled on the buffet

Your towns along I-95 with BBQ joints are:
Dunn
Fayetteville
Four Oaks
Lumberton
Rocky Mount (skip Gardners)
Smithfield

Everyone has a different opinion of what is good cue. Roz's would be good if a pig is on the buffet, also White Swan (Smithfield) and Holt Lake would be ok.

I agree that White Swan and Holt Lake are good stops. You can also tell a good BBQ joint when you walk in and the floor and tables are sticky from the sweet tea. Also, any respectable establishment will set a pitcher of sweet tea and a basket of hush puppies on your table without being asked.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

I love sweet tea, I put about 1-3/4 C of sugar in a gallon of tea when I make it. :P

Thanks for the suggestions, I printed out the maps...should be there around dinner time. :D

They sure did too! Stopped in Holt Lake last week and sure enough, pitchers of sweet tea on every table. :o The hush puppies were the best I've ever had and it was some good 'que as well---my youngest (16 months) probably ate as much as I did! :shock:

Thanks again for the tip, made the drive down a lot more bearable.
