Wilson Barbecue 1934

bbq 1936

Look at that pit! They don’t dig them like that anymore.

Found this priceless barbecue relic in the 1934 booklet Facts About Wilson published by the Wilson Chamber of Commerce.  I’m not sure how long it was in business (I will have to check the city directories) but my 60ish year old friend said that his father used to talk about it.  There is still a Dixie Inn Road just outside of town.
