Fincher’s Bar B Q
This past weekend the wife and I made a short trip south to see Corbin and his new “pup” and let me say to everyone and especially BuyPropertyUcheeDawg, she is as sweet as her mother and did not cry once while we were there. But back to the reason why everyone came to visit us from Dawgbone; if I was going to be meeting up with Corbin we had to have some barbecue for lunch. I had planned the trip earlier in the week to get to Macon around 1:00 and stop for BBQ at Holcomb’s in Greensboro but Mrs. Corbin asked that we come a little earlier so I had to save Holcomb’s for another day.
Once in Macon and after visiting with the pup, Corbin and I ventured out to pick up BBQ and bring it back home to the ladies. Our first stop was at Satterfield’s but they are only open during the week so Corbin suggested that we try the Macon favorite of Fincher’s. Now, either because he was looking out for his guest or values his own life, he took me to their location on the Gray highway and not the original location on Houston Road. Fincher’s has the look of an old fast food diner with the kitchen in the back, counter at the front and a few tables to the side. Not too much inside seating but that’s okay. We got the family pack which was two pounds of pork, a pack of buns, stew, and a side of slaw and headed home. This was very reasonably priced at $25.
The stew was good, as you can see from the picture it was a little runny but if I would have had it in a bowl with balls of white bread it would have been great. Poor planning on my part. Now to the BBQ. As my wife says, I was way too harsh on this que. It was moist, had some smoke flavor but not too much, pulled nicely but they killed it in sauce. They didn’t smoke this pig, they drowned him. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a decently good sauce with vinegar and mustard flavors but I hate when restaurants sauce their meat before serving it to you. All in all we enjoyed the BBQ. Fincher’s is the type of place that is good, I would eat again if offered to me but I would not drive from Athens just to try again. It’s BBQ that I would eat for lunch on Friday but I can’t in good faith crown it the best of Macon. So Macon readers, how far off was I in my assessment?
