NC BBQ Tweet-Up: Big Wayner meets C-Dubs BBQ

I have met some really wonderful people in the world of BBQ and grilling thanks to the power of Facebook and Twitter!  I know I keep saying this, but BBQ and grilling people are some of the most genuine and wonderful people to be around.  Two of these people are Charles and Allegra Wilson of C-Dub’s BBQ Rub.

C-Dub’s BBQ Rub is the brainchild of Charles and Allegra.  The blending of cultures (Charles is from North Carolina, Allegra is from British Columbia) has helped C-Dub’s in creating outstanding flavors with their line of BBQ rubs and seasonings.  Charles and Allegra were in the Charlotte area for the week visiting family, so they were gracious enough to meet up with me for lunch today!

We met today for some Eastern Carolina style barbecue at Bill Spoon’s Barbecue in Charlotte.  I had the best time with Charles and Allegra.  They were very personable and friendly.  We shared many good laughs and stories as well as some excellent barbecue and dessert.  I had such a great time, in fact, that I lost track of time and realized after about an hour and a half that I had to go back to work.  Time flies when you’re having fun, after all.  Charles and Allegra were also gracious enough to give me a really sweet BBQ apron as well as some rubs that I will be using at the first opportunity.  Now I can “Get Naked” every time I fire up the smoker!

I was extremely glad to meet Charles and Allegra today.  They were an absolute testament to how BBQ and grilling people are genuine and wonderful!  I cannot wait until we get the chance to meet up again.

    It is so great when after talking to people over great distances to actualy get the opportunity to meet them in person.
    I am happy for you guys and Allegra too. I had the pleasure to meet Wayne on two occasions and maybe one day I will be lucky enough to meet the C-Dub couple. These visits are special!
