Barbecue Inn in Asheville Shuts Doors for Last Time After 50 Years

On several occasions I have bemoaned the dearth of good barbecue in western North Carolina.  One place that provided barbecue to the good people of the high altitude part of our state was The Barbecue Inn in Asheville.  Unfortunately, the joint located just outside of downtown on Patton Avenue has closed up shop after 50 years in business.  It is sad to see another family-owned, long-time barbecue joint succumb to the economy.  More details are here in the Asheville Citizen-Times.
