DURHAM | Picnic is a low and slow BBQ joint in Durham by chef Ben Adams, pit master Wyatt Dickson, and farmer Ryan Butler. It’s all about wood-smoked, hand-pulled, whole-hog BBQ from pigs raised on a Butler’s Green Button Farm just a few miles away.

The space is simple, open, and lively, with seating indoors and outside and all of the smoking action happening on the low emission smoker to the side.

As you’d expect the pork is the standout here and the pulled pork is particularly great, especially when topped with some of the house made BBQ sauce which is a combination of the vinegar based sauce that’s popular on the eastern half of the North Carolina and the tomato based sauce that’s popular in the State’s western half. Paired with sides of slaw, hush puppies, bacon braised collared greens, and mac & cheese, you can’t go wrong.

The smoked buttermilk fried chicken and blackened catfish are also well worth trying. For those not after the North Carolina style favourites, there’s also beef brisket and spare ribs on the menu.

If you’re thirsty, the drinks menu features fountain sodas, local craft beers on draught and in bottles and cans, and a small selection of wine and cocktails.
