A new barbecue supply store here in north Raleigh has moved to a new location. Grillbillies Barbecue Supply has moved to a new location.
Whether you are a competition cook or an average Joe that enjoys cooking with a smoker or a grill, these guys talk BARBECUE! They sell everything (and I mean everything) you need, they even offer classes to teach novices such as myself, how to cook it right. There are usually a few, high-end grills and smokers sitting around for sale out front and off to the side of the building. If you are lucky, there will be a cooking class in progress and you will be treated to some incredible aromas of meat on the grills or in smokers.
The new store is located at:
10012 Capital Blvd.
Wake Forest, NC 27587 – About 2 miles north of 540
There are shelves of sauces and seasonings everywhere. Not the name brand stuff you are going to find at your local grocery store, they stock the “craft”, if you will, seasonings and sauces. A lot of the products they sell are staples on the elite barbecue circuits. There also an area where a table is set up, and you can taste test the products before you buy it.
You can’t just walk into this store and buy something. Impossible. These guys, who are, or have been, competition cooks themselves, will ask you all the right questions and make suggestions that will help you choose seasonings and cooking. ( I suggest taking a few minutes and trying the spices at the testing table. Next thing you know, your hand will be full of different bottles and you will be checking out. Whether you are a weekend grill master that wears the funny apron (like me) or someone who has a passion to slow cook meat the right way, Grillbillies is worth the visit.
