I'm a Texan, so every time I visit my folks in Raleigh, N.C., I'm always miffed when the locals try to tell me that North Carolina is home of the best barbeque. North Carolinians do not make barbeque like us Texans. But, if you are ever in Raleigh, you must visit a place called the Prime Smokehouse!!! In fact, they specialize in Texas-style barbecue. The ribs are smokey and tender, sauce is great, and the beef brisket is amazing! Thought I was in Austin!!! I've been there now on three consecutive trips back East, and they never disappoint. Mac & cheese is the best I've had. Collard greens are excellent too. Cornbread is a little sweet for me, but everything else is superb. Prime Smokehouse, you understand what authentic Texas barbeque is all about! I'm telling everybody to try you out.
