Charlotte's Best Barbecue?

Kyle Fletcher's in Lowell.

Kyle Fletcher’s was perfect from tipoff to finish: Juicy meat (and lots of it for $3.09), a few nicely caramelized bits of outside brown (aka bark, aka the parts of the shoulders closest to the heat, here produced with just hickory and charcoal) mixed in, a choice of two sauces (vinegar-based and a more tomatoey one), a slaw moderately coarse made with mayo and barbecue sauce on a simple, not soggy bun. (“And wow, did they heap it onto the bun!” enthused Verner.)

It's one of the places in the area I haven't eaten at yet - - guess I'll need to take a trip up there and give it a try.
