Does anyone know where to find good barbecue near Topsail Island, NC? (northeast of Wilmington, NC.) And specifically, does anyone have experience with, or even hearsay about, a restaurant called Holly Ridge Smokehouse, on US 17 in Holly Ridge, NC, about five miles inland from the bridge to Topsail Island?
We have a family reunion coming up in Topsail Beach in a week or so, and we're thinking of buying a big bunch o' barbecue to serve to everyone as they arrive, so no one has to cook all night the first night. So we need to find someplace that can make a lot of good barbecue (enough to feed 70 people, which I'd figure at about 30 pounds) and isn't too far a drive. (Going all the way into Wilmington, for example, would take about 80 minutes round trip and my wife thinks that's too far.)
All suggestions welcome! Thanks! (And if you think my math is off regarding how much Q i need, please let me know!)
