Fire Pit BBQ Opens in Wake Forest

If a friend had told me about a new BBQ joint in Wake Forest that cooks over wood coals and is run by Keith Allen’s next door neighbor, I’d have replied one of two ways:  “Hmm, that is a weird dream” or “Have you been drinking again?”  But when I read about such a restaurant in the News & Observer recently, I took it more seriously.

Evidently, there really is a new barbecue joint in Wake Forest that cooks with hickory and oak (gas-free, thank you very much).  And it really is run by a neighbor of legendary pitmaster Keith Allen of Chapel Hill’s Allen & Son, which is one of the best ‘cue spots on the planet.  I’m not sure that photosynthesis works with pitmasters, so I can’t figure out if Keith Allen’s special BBQ sunshine will help grow a neighbor into a great pitman, but I’m willing to test that theory.  I’ll be headed to Fire Pit BBQ soon, and I hope you do the same.

  1. Porky, you really need to start doing photography reviews of these restaurants. It’s all very well to announce the opening of a new place, but we’d like to see pics of the restaurant, the signage, the interiors, and finally the food.

  2. Robert, as you can imagine it is difficult to photograph a place I’ve never been. When I review places (see the Joints tab), I do take photos, rest assured.

  3. On behalf of the Fire Pit staff, please come eat with us! And try the pie!!

  4. Fire pits are very nice addition to anyones home. I always decorate my fire pits with some specialized wallpaper for a much better look. ;`*””
