Brookwood Farms BBQ

On our flight from St. Martin to Charlotte, Ken and I read an article about the ten best airports for food. Charlotte had a restaurant, Brookwood Farms BBQ, so we decided to get dinner there during our layover. After we got out of customs, I headed to Brookwood Farms’ line while Ken went to the drugstore to search for anti-itch cream because we had the most miserable flight from St. Martin to Charlotte. Luckily, the restaurant was very close to our gate and it was a cafeteria-style line so I figured we could get our food quickly:


Ken wanted to try their brisket and I wanted a pulled pork sandwich because I love North Carolina-style pulled pork. They sliced up the brisket to order:


The brisket plate and the pulled pork plate came with a side – we could choose from the macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, fried okra, corn, or creamed spinach:


My pulled pork sandwich came on a brioche bun and I ordered it with a side of fried okra and coleslaw:


The brisket came with a little barbecue sauce but it ended up being super dry:


The meal ended up being pretty good, especially for airport food. I usually don’t fly into Charlotte but their pulled pork sandwich is very comparable to Cook Out (one of my first destinations whenever I visit my mom in Greensboro). It’s much pricier than Cook Out (my sandwich platter at Brookwood Farms was around $10 vs Cook Out’s $5) but if I ever fly through Charlotte again, I’ll definitely re-visit Brookwood Farms.
