New woodcooker in Lumberton

jsr0711 Nov 21, 2011 05:42 AM

After a long time and a lot of work, Andy Price is about to open a genuine, old-fashioned, wood-cooking, whole hog barbecue place in Lumberton. Andy apprenticed with the great Wilber Shirley in Goldsboro and knows what he's doing. Varmint had an interview with him a while back:
The place will be called Nelson's Barbecue and deserves to succeed. Should be open by New Year's.

Nelson's Barbecue
4880 Kahn Dr, Lumberton, NC 28358

      Sure will. Here's Varmint's photo of Andy Price and Wilber Shirley.

      A wood cooker near I-95? If it's open on Sundays, I move that we beatify the man.

        That would sure remedy the problem of the through travelers wanting a quick detour for weekend BBQ!

              Maybe just for now.... one can only hope. Open Sunday then close Mon. & Tues. would be just fine.

        Nelson's is scheduled to open Tuesday, December 27th. They'll be open all that week, then closed on New Year's Eve and Day. A formal Grand Opening will be held early in January.

          BBQ Jew had a post last week saying this place has closed.

              The place must have been seriousluy undercapitalized. You can't expect to get into the black that quickly. Still, it's a shame. Nelson's was the first good news in the NC barbecue world in a long time. Too bad it closed instead of Smithfield Chicken n' Barbecue,
