Pik-N-Pig BBQ, Carthage, NC

Share!

GREAT Fly in / Drive in destination. Identifier changing to BQ1. 13/31 - 2500' paved with grass strip on left of 13. CTAF 122.9 unmonitored. Plenty of plane parking on grass. Great food and aviation atmosphere with large covered eating area outside and comfortable seating inside. Great view of runway and full size P40 mockup. A nice weekend day will see 15+ aircraft flying in. - Submitted by Dick Kruse

10/12/2021 - Good news from the Pik-N-BBQ:

Have you missed the Pik-N-Pig, because we sure have missed you! THREE EXCITING WAYS TO SEE US IN THE NEAR FUTURE:
Come see us at the NC State Fair this year October 14-24th, 2021. you guessed it... we are BACK with a new trailer, same great food and friendly faces. We really hope to see you there remember, we are over in kiddie land across from the BIG slide
Since Hobby Lobby already has Christmas stuff out I guess we can let the cat out of the bag, SANTA IS FLYING BACK TO THE PIG AGAIN THIS YEAR! Mark your calendars for Saturday afternoon, December 11th! Santa, food by the PIG and so much more. more details to follow
So many continue to ask and we LOVE it.... YES the Pig is COMING BACK to Carthage in our same location! They have already started with the initial plumbing and next up is slab work. Stay tuned for more details as we get them and we will post Pictures soon. Soon we can start counting down until we can greet all of you again and share some love, laughs and BBQ. As the sign in the restaurant once said, Family + love = BBQ!
Thank you ALL for your support and we hope to see everyone soon! Again more details to follow for the Santa Fly in but we hope to see everyone out at the NC State Fair this year. make it a GREAT Day and please, share this post to help us spread the word... the PIG is making a comeback! - Submitted by Mike

1/5/2013 - Today was our first visit to Pik-N-Pig BBQ. Food was great, service was great. Flying into a short field was exciting. We will return. - Submitted by Keith Tammy

9/15/2012 - Flew in to 5NC3 Gilliam Mc Connell: CTAF 122.9 to check out Pik-N-Pig. The staff are some of the most helpful people you will find. The BBQ was fabulous - well worth the flight. You will not be disappointed. After eating we took a stroll around the grounds to let lunch settle an snap some pictures. Then we grabbed a pound of brisket To-Go for the kids and an extra menu for the the FBO bulletin board. I am already planning the return trip. - Submitted by Willliam

10/29/2010 - Dropped in on a beautiful October day for some great barbecue. Runway in good shape approach to 31 is over some fairly tall trees. If you go, don't miss the banana pudding. Nice folks great place to visit. - Submitted by Denis Doster

8/29/2010 - You can park on the grass and just walk across the taxiway to enjoy a tasty pulled pork sandwich. It was a busy Sunday, but I didn't have to wait long to be seated in the covered area outside and watch the glider tow squeezing inbetween the take-offs and departures. - Submitted by Peter D.
