Old Hickory Barbecue Plant Closes

Yet another going out of business story in the NC barbecue world, this time from the town of Godwin in Sampson County, about 20 miles west of Fayetteville.  According to the Fayetteville Observer, long-time barbecue wholesaler Old Hickory Barbecue is closing its doors after 60 years.  The Old Hickory plant produced packaged barbecue and coleslaw for sale direct to individual customers and to supermarkets, restaurants and other businesses and organizations.
