As you may recall a couple of weeks ago, I got to meet up with my good friend and fellow BBQ blogger Wilfred Reinke as he was travelling through NC on his way to FL. Today I got to meet up with him again for lunch. As he had a long drive ahead of him today, I decided to meet him at this BBQ joint in north Charlotte so that he could at least shave a few miles off of his trip today. We met at Bobbee-O’s BBQ.

I am always on the lookout for new places to try in and around Charlotte. So when one of my employer’s clients suggested that I try Sauceman’s in Charlotte, I decided to give it a shot.
A couple of weeks ago, I heard rumor of a new BBQ joint opening up in Charlotte. As I read more and more about it, I started getting excited and determined that I just had to check this new place out soon. Well that new place is Midwood Smokehouse, and I took the opportunity today to check it out before having to head in to the office.

My search for the best barbecue places in the Charlotte area continued recently with a visit to Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q in Charlotte, NC. Jim ‘n Nick’s has 28 locations in 7 different states and prides itself in cooking its ‘que low and slow and making everything from scratch. I’ve heard good things regarding Jim ‘n Nick’s, so I decided to give it a shot.
For a city the size of Charlotte, there’s not much there in the way of outstanding barbecue. There are several adequate places, and there are even a couple that are good. But in the years that I’ve lived here, the only place that I have tried that I would call excellent is Mac’s Speed Shop. However, I kept hearing about Bill Spoon’s Barbecue, so I decided to give it a shot one day for lunch.

For lunch yesterday, I got a craving for BBQ. I did not really feel like fighting the crowds at Mac’s Speed Shop today, no matter how good the ‘cue is. After doing some research, I found Shane’s Rib Shack, which is fairly close to my office.
On my ever-going search for good BBQ in Charlotte, I stumbled across a place close to my job called the Old Hickory House Restaurant. After reading a few reviews about it on Yelp, I decided to give it a shot. (Today’s pictures brought to you again by my crappy cell phone camera)
I often lament the lack of good quality BBQ joints here in the Charlotte, NC metro area. It really is a shame that in a city the size of Charlotte, the closest good BBQ joint is a 45-60 minute drive away. There were a couple of joints close to my previous employer that were okay, but they were nothing spectacular.
