JB's Smokeshack is a classic Carolina barbecue buffet. You pay at the door, get a styrofoam plate, and help yourself to two steam tables piled high with hickory-smoked pork and chicken and brimming with hash and rice, fried okra, baked beans, and many more barbecue classics. The meat is served unadorned, and you sauce it yourself from a choice of five bottles. The pork is tender and flavorful, but the chicken — rich and juicy and full of great smoke flavor — is the real treat. The juicy, pepper-tinged fried chicken is superb, too. Wear your eatin' pants with the elastic waistband. After the third trip to the buffet and a heaping bowl of banana pudding, you're gonna need the room. —Robert Moss, Dish (Summer 2012)
A big buffet with a tasty array of sides, but the stars here are delicious smoked BBQ pork, ribs, chicken, brisket, and sausage. Get pork chops on Thurs. and fried fish on Sat.
