The planning committee met on the way from the hotel after Maule and All. The next meeting date is Oct. 27 at (where else) the Pic-N-Pig. About noon will work.

Well, unfortunately weather doesn't appear to want to play nice for our BQ1 outing tomorrow. Looks like a rain date (read: Low celing/vis) is in order

any suggestions?

Weather isn't going to cooperate. I second Kirk's request for a rain date. November is booked for me. How about early December?

A bit of bad news here in NC.

The Pick-n-Pig suffered a complete loss over the weekend. A 3am fire burned the place to the ground. The original smoke house is all that is left standing. They do have a funding page up and vow to build as soon as possible.

Just wanted to let the out of towners know so they don't make the trek in vain.

Yep herd about it via their Facebook page ( wife does the book-o-face) . Really a shame it was such an awesome kind of place, hopefully when they get it rebuild it keeps that texture that old places like this have. :cry:

Any ideas on another place anywhere close'ish to compare to the Pig ?

Oh no! I was just about to suggest that we have a Pik-n-Pig run now that things are getting back to normal. Hickory Regional Airport (KHKY) has a decent cafe that is accessible from the ramp. It's a tower controlled airport with decent controllers. No grass to land on, though. Rutherford County Airport (KFQD) has a cafe next to the terminal that's not bad but small. There's a decent barbecue place, the Flying Pig within walking distance of Shelby Airport (KEHO). It was closed for renovations last time I was there, but it may be open now. According to funplacestofly.com Martha's Grill at Montgomery County Airport (43A) in Star, NC east of Charlotte has an on-field restaurant but I've never been there. Suzanne's Cafe at Blue Ridge Airport (KMTV) in Martinsville VA isn't too far away for NC pilots and it's very good. The restaurant is in the terminal building.

Maybe one of y'all's North Carolina guys will check out Marthia's Grill, it's exactly the same distance as BQ1 for all practical purposes. If it's good might be worth a few visits while the pick-n-pig does it's impression of a Phoenix
