Hi Chowhounds!

I know this has been discussed in the past a bit, but not for a few years. As places change ownership, close, etc, I thought I'd run my list of planned stops past y'all.

Anywhere I should skip?
Any place that is a must visit, that I've missed?
Signature dish form each place?
Ordering tips? I'm a northerner, after all! Help!

Day 2 is a SUNDAY! Lots of places were closed, so my list is for places that are open on Sundays. Bummer, I know!

DAY 1 (Saturday) Charlotte to Fayetteville, NC
Lexington BBQ
Speedy Lohr's
Allen & Son
RJ's Famous Chicken
Skylight Inn

DAY 2 (Sunday) Goldsboro to Charleston, SC
Big Boys Original Smokehouse
Big Bull's Bangin BBQ
Jackie Hite's

We plan to drive up to Sweatman's and maybe Scott's the next day if we aren't dead yet!!! Thanks for looking at my list and giving any input that you think might be helpful!
