In Sylva, interested in eastern NC style BBQ nearby

Posted an earlier question about Asheville and thanks to everyone for some great recommendations. I am presently here in Sylva and some in our group want BBQ prepared the traditional eastern NC style with a vinegar vs. tomato based sauce. We're hoping to go out tomorrow eve for BBQ. Any suggestions? We don't want to go all the way to Asheville, so the closer to Sylva, the better.

  1. Liveforfood: Good luck finding eastern style Q in western NC! That's like asking for New York-style pizza in Chicago. It's a 4 hr drive to Eastern NC Q.

    Once upon a time, Jim Leff visited Slyva. He wrote about his finds here. Also look at what he wrote about Boone. He wrote about fnding god Q in a gas station there. The day I went it was closed.

      not Eastern NC style, but worth a 15 min drive from Sylva
