Just off Highway 55 is the Holy Grail of barbecue and cookout related eats. Take a little drive and treat your taste buds to some home-style cookin' you won't find anywhere else.

By Chelsea Pieroni
Nominated the best BBQ in all NC by Yahoo Travel, Backyard BBQ Pit never ceases to amaze. Don't be put off by its low-key, spartan building (or their 90s-era website)—meat eaters, you're at the gates of heaven. There's a reason they call this place "backyard," 'cause this home-style cooking will make you feel like you're kicking back on the front porch on the Fourth of July. Grab a disposable plate and stack up on briskets, pulled pork, tender ribs, collards, hush puppies, beans, mac n' cheese all cooked to perfection, smother it all in sweet sauces and chow down like there's no tomorrow. Everything you find here is tender, buttery and packed with that NC flavor we all know so well. When you're done with you meal, go ahead and add your memento to the autographed and Sharpie-ridden wall to immortalize the time you had your first bite of Backyard.
