  1. Parkers in wilson, nc, has very good bbq and is close to 95. If you search this board you will see many posts and disagreements about what is best.

    also check out for a map of some of the better joints.

      Thanks. I've searched the board and do enjoy Parkers.

      However (I should have specified) I was hoping for a credible EZ-on/EZ-off option (like Moore's was in Kenly before it shut down).

      Any further thoughts appreciated.

        youre in luck Dude,,,Moores didnt really shut down just closed for awhile untill they could move into the empty Hardees a little closer to the 95 highway,,,,,

          Where on 95 is Moore's? I'll be driving from Virginia to Emerald Isle later in June. Will this be close?

            Kenly -- exit 107. Drove by this afternoon in fact. But didn't see the Moores/Hardees -- is it open yet? Where is it?
