Primarily I am interested in BBQ suggestions for my long transect across the entire state of North Carolina, followed by solid local seafood markets/docks and restaurants at the OBX.

Otherwise, my trip is as follows (and I am open to suggestions, must sees in all) from St. Louis:

Louisville (staying with friend in Cherokee Triangle)
Balsam Mtn Campground (nice and cool... for those who havent been above 5,000 ft in the southern Appalachians, it's amazing considering you are in the south).
Far southern Cape Hatteras (camping if I don't snag a last minute cabin, don't really care either way).

The return leg is in question, most likely a one night stay in good ole downtown Asheville, NC with a possible stop in Richmond, VA or Charlotte, NC.

    In the OBX he should be eating seafood. There really is no good 'Que there, you're better off on the mainland. Every bit of 'Que I've ever had out there was mediocre, at best and some was just downright bad. The seafood, on the other hand, is aces. Sam and Omie's has a great crab cake and the service has always been excellent. The chowder, at a number of places, is not to be missed.

    Looks like you are getting plenty of feedback for the trip to the beach. Here are a few suggestions for the OBX. Art's Place in Kitty Hawk has been around for decades and even though Art is no longer around they still make a great burger. Sit on the roof and watch the waves roll in while you eat. Kill Devil Grill in Kill Devil Hills is a 1939 Kullman dining car with a bigger dining room built out the back. They do have limited hours but the incredible food is well worth the trip. Also in Kill Devil Hills is Chili Peppers. They have very good mexican but also serve a little bit of everything. Their sunday brunch is great. If you find yourself near one of the four Duck Donuts locations make sure you stop and get a dozen. You watch your donuts being made and then tell them what toppings to put on them. If you make it to Ocracoke Island try Dajio for a nice seafood dinner and you can hear live music in their bar. If you are still in the mood for bbq once you are at the beach try Sooey's BBQ & Rib Shack. It is not great bbq but it is very good. They have 3 locations including one in Nag's Head. 
     
    Have fun and let us know how the trip goes.

    If you make it to Avon, try Mac Daddy's for seafood. They do a good job. The Orange Blossom bakery in Buxton is fantastic, just make sure to get there early. Try the apple uglies. I already mentioned Sam and Omies in Nags Head. Great food, especially the chowder and crab cake. The Black Pelican in Kitty Hawk is also pretty decent, but can get crowded. Risky Business seafood in Avon is a good place to pick up some ready to cook seafood. They also do some steaming of shrimp and crabs for the customers. Never had a disappointment there. Howards Pub, on Ocracoke is also a good destination. Huge beer selection. And, if you just have to have a pizza while you're there, Nino's in Avon makes a very respectable pizza. It's a mom and pop place that makes a good pie.

    Here's another one for your friend:
    http://www.thepit-raleigh.com/
    Started by Ed Mitchell, "The Pitmaster" and partners after he got out of jail for tax evasion!. Featured on Bobby Flay's "Throwdown" show it 2009. (The show is a re-run tonight on Food Network)
    Ed has moved on and is now hooked up with Butterball Turkeys to promote turkey BBQ. He may open a turkey BBQ restaurant somewhere in the Raleigh-Durham NC area. May be open when your friend gets there.
    Here's his Momma's Smoked Turkey Recipe;
    Let’s talk turkey by Ed Mitchell
    North Carolina bird on the barbecue, à la mom
    My mother crafted this recipe for eastern North Carolina-style whole turkey barbecue many years ago so that our family members who did not eat pork could still enjoy great grilled fare.
    It became so popular in our family that I started serving turkey barbecue in my restaurants and at events.
    This recipe is designed for an 18- to 20-pound turkey. You may have to adjust cooking times and ingredient quantities if you are grilling a different size.
    If you are using a direct-heat grill, place the coal or wood pieces in a rectangular pattern on the bottom of it, large enough so that the turkey can sit above the space in the rectangle.
    Bring the temperature up to between 250 and 275 degrees.
    First, split/butterfly the turkey but keep it attached at the breastbone. Lay it out, skin side up, above the inner space of the rectangle of coal or wood pieces. Roast for two hours, then flip the turkey so it sits skin-side down, and roast for another 45 to 60 minutes.
    Once the turkey is cooked to your liking, take it off the grill and remove the skin and bones (especially the small ones). Then, mix the following ingredients into the meat by hand:
    - 1 cup apple cider vinegar
    - 1/4 cup red pepper powder
    - 1 tablespoon salt
    - 1 tablespoon black pepper
    - 2 tablespoons sugar
    - (Optional) 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
    Once the whole medley is good and blended, serve over potato buns with coleslaw. Enjoy!
    He's also one of the originators of the NYC-Big Apple BBQ Block Party.
