BBQ/Southern/country food pilgrimage from DC to Western Virginia

Hi folks -

I'm taking a friend of mine, who has never before experienced the delights of Southern cooking, on a short pilgrimage to experience what the South has to offer. We're looking for a variety of cheap eats, but in particular:

Carolina BBQ
Texas (or other tomato based) BBQ
Dry BBQ
Pecan pie

I'm also planning on hitting up a Waffle House or similar greasy spoon for a breakfast centered on grits (or biscuits and gravy), and a Bojangles (if possible) for some real sweet tea and a chicken sandwich (I'm from NC, so BoJ's is non-negotiable).

Would appreciate any and all suggestions - particularly for BBQ in central/western VA, but others are welcome. We'll probably make it as far west as the George Washington/Jefferson National Forests. The route is flexible.

Thanks in advance.

Pulled pork in vinegar is EXACTLY what I'm looking for! Thanks so much for this one...

Thanks for the tip - I'll report on the Mid-Atlantic board and see if I get any bites. The route is negotiable, but we'll probably go South a little on 95, then through either Charlottesville or Lynchburg, and out as far as Roanoake/Blacksburg, probably. The idea is just to get out of the city and drive for a weekend, hitting some good food along the way.

Would love to, but can't go home to NC without visiting the family - which I'm trying to avoid. Thanks, though!

Al fresco dining in NW DC?

With springtime in the air, its time to start getting serious about outdoor dining again. I am interested in moderate or inexpensively priced options in the Woodley Park, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, Dupont, or U-street areas. Any recommendations?
