I need to try Saucy's. I grew up in Tri-Cities, still go there some to

visit In-Laws and we always get Kings on Sundays. They are creatures of habit, and Kings is dependably very good, near their house, and reasonably priced, so they see no reason to try Saucy's.

Nanny's just south of Petersburg is good too ... good barbecue (similar to Kings but not quite as good IMO) and their fried chicken is better, I think.

If ever in Hopewell (first, I am sorry about that, LOL) try K&L. Very similar to Kings. Pretty sure it was started by a King family member or manager who left to do his/her own thing due to a dispute.

I used to live near Ashland. Not only lost Smokey Pig, but also Fat Boys, which was next to the old Green Top on Route 1. It was better than Smokey Pig, IMO. Virginia Barbecue in that area was sometimes good, but I found them very inconsistent. Carter's Pig Pen in Mechanicsville was good, but it's been a few years.
