The Backyard BBQ Pit in Durham Has Great Barbecue and Home Style Side Dishes
Pitmaster Marquis Egerton II Hand Chops the Wood to Smoke the Meats
My son and I took a road trip and stopped at the Backyard BBQ Pit in Durham, NC. It's right off I 40 at 5204 Highway 55.
This is a real North Carolina wood burning barbecue joint, and they also smoke ribs and chicken. Side dishes are like Grandma used to make.
The food was amazing, and they had a special for a barbecue sandwich and two sides for $4.99. Can't beat that.
