BBQ/Southern/country food pilgrimage from DC to Western Virginia

sammana14 | May 20, 2010 04:18 PM

Hi folks -

I'm taking a friend of mine, who has never before experienced the delights of Southern cooking, on a short pilgrimage to experience what the South has to offer. We're looking for a variety of cheap eats, but in particular:

Carolina BBQ
Texas (or other tomato based) BBQ
Dry BBQ
Pecan pie

I'm also planning on hitting up a Waffle House or similar greasy spoon for a breakfast centered on grits (or biscuits and gravy), and a Bojangles (if possible) for some real sweet tea and a chicken sandwich (I'm from NC, so BoJ's is non-negotiable).

Would appreciate any and all suggestions - particularly for BBQ in central/western VA, but others are welcome. We'll probably make it as far west as the George Washington/Jefferson National Forests. The route is flexible.

Thanks in advance.
