RE: Kurleys BBQ, Welcome North Carolina
I'll second the Lex#1 recommendation and add another. Tar Heel Q is located west of Lexington on US Hwy 64. They're consistently very good-to-excellent. (Tough to do in that business) Most places are pretty good if you stay with the wood-cookers. Smiley's, Whitley's, Smokey Joe's, Cook's, Southern, etc. Stick to the cheeseburgers if you go to Speedy's...
