I pretty much like any BBQ, but Five Star is not Chinese. My wife and MIL are Chinese, they hated that place. It's American food that looks Chinese.

The Pit in downtown Raleigh has been good every time I was there, but it is pretty trendy and expensive for BBQ.

It's just cheap insurance for me. If for some reason my tilt/trim bleed down, then the skeg will drag on the ground. For all purposes it *should* not happen, but somethings things go wrong.
