New barbecue spot opening in Knightdale

It's the year of barbecue in Raleigh! This time, a new barbecue restaurant is coming to Knightdale with Prime Barbecue.

Prime Barbecue will open up near Knightdale Station Park in March, the first restaurant for pitmaster + owner Christopher Prieto.

Why you might already know Christopher: He’s been featured on barbecue-related shows including Food Network's Chopped Grill Masters and worked with Southern Living magazine on the “Ultimate Book of BBQ” cookbook.

On the menu

🍴 A “plethora of smoked meats” including brisket and signature pimento cheese and jalapeño house-made beef sausages.

🍴Six barbecue pits will be visible to diners and use different mixes of wood (including pecan, oak, hickory or cherry).

🍴 A whole hog style will be offered on Saturdays. 

🍴Sides will include smoked gouda mac and cheese, mustard vinegar slaw and barbecue rice (influenced by his Puerto Rican heritage).

🍴Desserts will include multiple varieties of cobblers and chess pies, plus a bourbon banana pudding.

Outside of the menu, guests will notice local artist Lisa Gaither's murals inside the restaurant.
