Brushy Mountain Smokehouse & Creamery
Located in western North Carolina, Brushy Mountain adopts an ecumenical attitude when it comes to barbecue. The eastern part of the state inspires Brushy’s barbecue sauce. Dominated by vinegar, the house-made sauce has only a hint of sweetness. When asked to map the restaurant’s barbecue, catering manager Daniel Harrison simply says, “It’s Brushy Mountain Smokehouse style.” One element of that style is care. All pork is hand-pulled.
Can't-Miss Menu Item: Fried apple pie
Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Closed Sunday.
