Prime Barbecue  | Knightdale, NC

Christopher – the owner and head fire maker of Prime Barbecue – is also a champion pitmaster, book author, barbecue judge, teacher and barbecue eating expert. After years of experience through cooking, teaching and judging, he believes that he has achieved what he considers “barbecue excellence” with his signature style that fuses together elements of Texas, North Carolina and Kansas City flavors. Christopher plans to open Prime Barbecue in Knightdale, which will include both indoor and outdoor seating along with a unique bar area by the "pit room." There, customers will be able to see and smell the barbecue being prepared.
