A building burning down vs entire cities gone, I don't know what it is, but your post truly rubs me the wrong way! Not meaning to be a "Dick" here, but calling that a tragedy, is a joke IMO.

I'm confident the owner and his loyal customers consider it a tragedy. I don't think OP posted this in comparison to the events in that region.

I find it odd this would rub you wrong and hard to believe you don't mean to be a dick.

Try to keep a sense of humor, you'll live longer.

Evidently you're not familiar with the absurd popularity that is Franklins.

It came across to me like a comparison, hence the part about not wanting to come across like a dick, like you have on purpose, but that's just you being you!

Idk, I don't think OP meant to compare it to the immense tragedy that is the flooding. Many people are very passionate about BBQ and it's no secret this is considered one of the best in the country. I didn't read too much into it. If Wilbers BBQ in Goldsboro burned down (hate to even think of that) right after hurricane Matthew came through I'd probably say something about getting kicked while we're down or another tragedy.

Oh, and obviously brisket isn't BBQ but it's still sad.



Just kidding. It's on my bucket list. Hope they come back and don't miss a beat.

I've had Franklins BBQ. It was good, but I don't get the hype. I've had good BBQ lots of places in Texas.

I smoke my own so everybody else's sucks. North south east or west. With that said, if it's a pit, it would be a tragedy here in NC since new places can't have a pit. Existing ones can stay. Not sure of TX rules.

What is the definition of a pit? I'm pretty sure the pit in Raleigh uses wood, but it's indoors and I guess probably has all the pertinent equipment to deal with the smoke.

Also Sam Jones' new place has an outdoor pit...but again not sure it's a pit like B's or Lexington BBQ has.

Either way, any laws preventing such are complete bullcrap.

Wood fired pits. Outdoor ones are fine but new places must be built having to use gas. I understood it this way in the mid 90's if I'm not mistaking. The existing ones are fine, oddly enough.

I have had Franklins; I grew up on Wilbur's (and King's). The loss of Franklin's is sad, but the loss of Wilbur's would be far, far worse.

This is not the case in Johnston County, not sure about other places. Wood/charcoal are pretty much unregulated, but they have to be in at least a screen enclosure if outside.

So you can build a new BBQ joint with a wood fired pit as opposed to having to build with gas. I didn't know they switched it back due too the fire hazard. I can see where outside use of one has never been a problem. That's good, maybe we'll get a run of some new fire pit BBQ joints as opposed too the gassed ones like say, Smithfield's.

Not sure how much longer we will have Wilbur's. They recently quit serving breakfast and Wilbur unfortunately is aging like the rest of us. Doubtful anyone can run it like he. The new Goldsboro Bypass has helped either.
