Matt reminisces about his two uneventful trips to Davidson County. Chris discusses the surprisingly high population of Davidson County. Matt discusses Pat Summit and the amateur and professional basketball career of Davidson (College) graduate Woodrow Wilson. Chris speculates about whether the Sapona Indians hold a grudge about losing their river name.  Matt notices the dichotomy between Thomasville being home to the big chair but not being the county seat of Davidson County.

Davidson County is associated with a handful of famous- or semi-famous people, including its namesake Brigadier General William Lee Davidson, Revolutionary War patriot, and Thomasville’s namesake John W. Thomas.

Chris and Matt toast Davidson County with a Fearrington Summer from Durham County’s Fullsteam Brewery. Appropriate in Chris’ mind since sweet tea goes well with barbecue.  After having perhaps too much Fearrington Summer, Matt volunteers various places he aint too proud to swim.

Chris lays out the differences between ‘western’ or Lexington style barbecue and ‘eastern’ style barbecue. Matt recommends BBQJew.com for its domain name and bbq reviews.  Matt wonders if it is enough in life to be delicious.

The boys also talk about High Rock Lake, a bit about the Uwharrie Mountains, and Thomasville’s
Everybody’s Day.
