Agreed on Virginia Barbecue Co.

Plus I tended to go to the Smokey Pig.

I haven't lived in VA for over 20 years now, but I do partake of the pig whenever I travel to or through VA.

I'm still a NC BBQ purist and don't think anyone can hold a candle to the BBQ at Parker's in Wilson, or several of the places in Lexington. (Or the hush puppies -- but NOT the bbq - at Stamey's in Greensboro.) But that being said, if I'm not in Lexington or Wilson, I'll try to the local pig. And love brisket as long as nobody tries to make me call it bbq. :)

I'm pretty sure I've never been to Hopewell -- it's not the kind of place you just pass through! -- but will definitely file that away.

Anything good north of Richmond? Going to be in Fredericksburg soon and I can't recall anything there actually being decent. I definitely won't make it down as far as Richmond or even Ashland.
