I treasure my autographed copy of Jim's book "Best of Tarheel Barbeque." Was in western NC this week and found out the hard way that Eddie's BarBQ in Waynesville had closed--was really sorry to see that since Jim really glowed about his ribs. Also visited Skeeter's in Canton and Carolina Smokehouse in Cashiers. The latter (contrary to what the book sez)is located on the SOUTH side of Rt 64 just west of the main intersection.
Has anyone else noticed any closings or changes since the book came out last year?
