Memphis Barbecue Co. – Fayetteville, NC

When I was at Memphis in May last year, a group of us had lunch at Memphis Barbecue Co. in Horn Lake, MS just before I had to fly back to NC.  I was very impressed with the quality of food there.  Imagine my excitement when I find out that world champion BBQ pitmasters Melissa Cookston and John Wheeler decide to open a location here in North Carolina.  There was one slight problem – the new location is in Fayetteville, about 2 hours and 40 minutes away from me.  This past weekend, my wife bribed me with a trip to Memphis Barbecue Co. in Fayetteville if I tagged along with her to some yarn & fiber shops.  Lesson here: feed me, and I’ll do pretty much anything you want.  So let’s check out Memphis Barbecue Co.!

Checking out Phat Matt’s BBQ – Oakland, CA

I apologize for not writing until now.  It’s funny how real life can get in the way of things.  I’ve taken a new position that has had me on the  road for nearly a month now.  In fact, I am still on the road as I write this.  The one advantage of being on the road is getting to check out new BBQ joints and restaurants.  One place I had the privilege of checking out was Phat Matt’s BBQ in Oakland.  In fact, I checked it out twice!
