Mallard Creek BBQ

This past Thursday, I visited my first Mallard Creek Barbecue during a late lunch break on a perfectly crisp fall day. The church barbecue was in its 84th year and this year cooked 14,000 pounds of barbecue, 2,500 gallons of brunswick stew, 2 tons of slaw, and over 8,000 sandwiches. Speaking of sandwiches – my two sandwiches were pretty great and honestly better than most restaurant options in Charlotte. Be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s barbecue – always the fourth Thursday of October – because it’s definitely worth checking out for any serious barbecue fan.
