One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

North Carolina Tour


Tyler's Tap RoomOur 10th tour visited the birthplace of American Barbecue: North Carolina.  During our three-day tour, We hit 16 barbecue joints, and each night we found a minor league baseball game and tap room for relaxation. 


 Because our crew was small, we were able to cover a majority of the state, logging around 700 miles during the tour.  The barbecue was fantastic, and 4 joints placed into our all-time top ten list!  Yum.
