Durham/Chapel Hill/Raleigh mustard-based BBQ?

  • m

An earlier thread inspired me to post this one. Growing up in Florida/S. Georgia, I'm pretty used to the mustard-based sauces employed in BBQ (esp. for chicken). While the Triangle is known for a completely different style, are there any BBQ places that break the trend and actually serve up mustard-based preparations?

Anything that springs to mind is much appreciated.

      Danny's offers a mustard option.

        They sell Dillard's at Durham Bulls games. If you go to Dillards's you will be amazed at the choices - served cafeteria style. Very nice people.

          In downtown Raleigh next around the corner from 42nd street is a place called The Smokehouse. It has mustard based BBQ. it is average in quality and in a nice restaurant setting.

            In my previous post I called the mustard based BBQ in Raleigh as the Smokehouse which is what I call it. The place is called The Southend Brewery. I believe it is a Charlotte place with Raleigh being an additional location.

    2. there's a place called jim's famous bbq in a self-standing building near southern season in chapel hill. the bbq is sweet and delicious, and there are all types of sauce, including mustard-based sauces available. it's damn cheap, too.

        Oh gawd, to each his/her own I suppose, but Jim's is terrible in my opinion. His que is consistently overcooked to the point where the meat has a jerky-like quality.

          I agree...Jim's claims to be a BBQ place but they don't serve hush puppies...I have never had a satisfying meal there.

            this may be the case... i was only there once, and it was for some benefit for domestic violence, so they cooked the pig specifically for those who were there for the benefit dinner. thanks for the info, it saved me from a crappy meal.
