Big shakeup at the number one spot in our Charlotte leader board. We’ve added 5 reviews to the Charlotte rankings since December and Boone’s Bar-B-Que Kitchen, a food truck run by a Dan “Boone” Gibson, who helped create the original Mac’s Speed Shop and Queen City Q, takes the top spot with it’s moist, tender, smokey barbecue with a perfect bark. It’s high quality brisket and sausage only help to solidify it’s ranking. Speedy and I will be revisiting Midwood Smokehouse soon for a proper re-review, and it will be interesting to see just how it stacks up on its second official review. The next best hope to challenge the top spot is Kyle Fletcher’s in Gastonia, which we have yet to review despite it winning the Charlotte Observer Barbecue Bracket in spring 2013.
What other Charlotte area joints should we check out? Feel free to weigh in on your favorite in the comments and if you present a strong enough case we will try to head there next.
Since July, we’ve added 6 new joints to the Charlotte Big Board, with no real shake up at the top. In fact, the highest reviewed place since July went only as high as fifth – Old Hickory House. I can’t see much left out there in Charlotte to shake things up too much, but I am really curious about two places – The Que Stand out of a gas station in Harrisburg as well as Kyle Fletcher’s, the winner of the Observer bracket challenge last spring.
