I, for one, really do like those vinegary sauces. This came into frequent play when I was working in the Triangle and out to Rocky Mount and Greenville.

Apparently I'm going to get a healthy dose as my compatriot who is based in CLT is planning on hauling me up to Lexington, NC for what he says is the best in the state. We'll see. :cool:

I've been to CLT a fair number of times and have done road trips out of CLT up to three states away from there, but despite my best intentions, I never made it to Lexington. :(

There are places in Lexington that are absolutely great (I forget the names since the last time that I spent any amount of time there was 25 years ago when I was doing a deal with a guy who owned a piece of one of them).

However, the West Carolina-Piedmont 'cue is a lot different from the eastern. Instead of the classic eastern chopped in vinegary sauce, the Piedmont stuff is cooked crusty and served without a lot of sauce. When it is done correctly, it should be nearly perfect for those Texas tastebuds.

I was in NYC throughout the whole thing and wow what a mess it is in the Big Apple... People celebrated like crazy, some of the metro stations closed up, news were all over ground zero for an interview yesterday afternoon... I took the PATH to WTC then connected to the E metro line to drop a friend off at JFK...

Evening, Box.

I used the extension of the CO travel waiver to adjust the routing of my upcoming ICN mileage run. Was flying ICN-NRT-EWR-DFW, am now flying ICN-NRT-HNL-ORD-DFW (whew!). Of course, this raises a few questions:

1. Can I upgrade the return with UA miles given my outbound was upgraded with a CO SWU?

2. Even if possible, should I do a mileage upgrade?

3. Assuming I rely on UDU, should I use my 1P number on the itinerary for higher UDU placement and potentially "forfeit" the CO MM BIS miles or use my Onepass number and risk losing out on an upgrade as UA 1Ps and CO PEs get auto-upgraded ahead of me? I can try to switch the number mid-trip, but that carries some risk of screwup, and UA considers time added to UDU list as a factor.
