C-hound victory in Lexington, N.C.

On Feb. 11 I posted a request for rex on bbq/banana pudding in Lexington-Greensboro. Said I'd tried Q in the area & wasn't impressed. Got a lot of replies & it boiled down to this: If you want the delicious darkened stuff, order ``outside brown.'' Well, thanks to Chowhounders, my opinion of Lexington Q did a 180. Went to Barbecue Center AND Lexington #1 ... (sitdown at BC; takeout at #1). Meat was tender & flavorful, not overly smokey but a thoroughly satisfying barbecue experience. Tomatoey ``dipping sauce'' was a nice addition. I liked BC & #1 about the same but my gourmand brother weighed in on the side of #1. I'm writing this principally to say ``thank you'' to the many Tar Heels who obviously follow Chowhound and offered invaluable advice. Oh, and I got some acceptable banana pudding at BC also! If anyone has strong feelings about any of the other places in Lexington, N.C., I'd love to hear them.
