Located high in the mountains in the far western part of North Carolina, these folks have been making barbecue for over 30 years. Their hickory-fueled "wood oven" imparts a nice smokey flavor to the pork shoulders and ribs they cook. The pulled pork is a very dry barbecue. Their ribs, also dry but far superior to the shoulders, are wonderful and well worth a trip to this joint. Your order for either comes with a tasty "western" tomato-based sauce served on the side. Forget the hush puppies and slaw here - must be the proximity of the ski slopes or something. (6-2-96)
