If you are in the Franklin, NC area (about 50 miles WSW from Asheville) you definitely need to check out "Fat Buddies Ribs and Barbecue". There is also a "Fat Buddies" in Waynesville (about 25 miles west of Asheville).
GREAT food and lots of it for not too bad a price!
If you get a bit more specific on where you might be, I could be more specific on BBQ in the area.
