If you want North Carolina barbeque, do make the effort to get thy selves to a place that still cooks barbeque over wood. The que is memorable at these venerable places, which are decreasing in number.
Yes! Only Murray’s Barbecue on Old Poole Road serves genuine que, slow cooked over wood coals. On an east-west axis, they serve the only wood-cooked barbeque between Allen and Son in Durham/Chapel Hill and Wilber’s in Goldsboro.
Have a wonderful trip.
