    The only 2 que restaurants we eat at are Vandy’s in Statesboro, where I was raised been around maybe 80 years and Oinkers in Clayton, Georgia near where we live.

    you need to put Fresh Air in Macon, Georgia as well as Jackson, Georgia on the map

    The Best in the State is Crowes Bar-B-Q in Madison,Ga.

    Fresh air Jackson GA

    Bubba Q in jasper

    Judge BBQ across southeast, you have had some solid choices on here.

    Yep, you need to have Fresh Air on there.

      Agree we veryone Fresh Air has to be in the equation. You can arge about sauces but theirs is the best slow cooked pork in the State
      I also suggest a trip to BBQ-1 on lower Roswell Rd in East Cobb. HIs former partner’s place on Whitlock Ave in Marietta is equally good. I know its not BBQ but try the beef it is kick-a**

    Another good trip to daddy D’s on memorial drive in atl. Neighborhood is rough and exterior of building is even rougher. But pork and sides were solid.

    The Oink Joint in Zebulon has outstanding BBQ. Should be on everyones list (if you’re going thru Z-town).

      I left Zeb-u-lawwwn years ago. I thought there was a good place in Williamson, off of Williamson Rd, but I can’t remember the name. Where is this Oink joint?

        Thanks to a website that looks like the word goggle, I found the place: PAPA WILLIE’S right off of hwy 362 (Williamson Rd). When you’re done, there’s a little antique shop around the bend and a little park to walk off all the extra calories, or enjoy the sunset. And you can’t miss the vietnam era HUGHIE sitting right across the street!

        On the square.

    Tried Biguns BBQ in talking Rock. They have an enormous sandwich. Definitely worth trying if you are up that way.

    I couldn’t find Fincher’s, Houston Ave., Macon.

    Holcomb’s in White Plains is a staple for anyone coming to Athens on GA15 for the games or heading to Jacksonville from Athens. Dooley used to take the team there from time to time. Wood chip floor, only open Fri-Sat (would make the Thurs bit hard). Great stew & cue and sweet tea ladled out of a gigantic pot. Make sure you go to the one in White Plains & not Greensboro. Same family/owners, but half the character.

    Also Keith-a-que in Ashburn ain’t bad either.

    Vandys has always been my favorite in the state, primarily due to the sauce and white bread (good stew too.) I like Fresh Air in Macon when traveling there. Don’t know if Glenn’s in Conyers is still open but that was the only place I had ever been where I wasn’t sure I could eat two large BBQ sandwiches. His sauces weren’t that good but his meat was excellent and piled high on garlic Texas Toast. He is on Hwy 20 in a SC with a Kroger in it behind a McDonalds about a mile off I-20. If he is still there, it is worth going way out of your way to try. I haven’t been there in 10 years so things could have changed. The best Brunswick Stew I have found is at Johnny’s in Gainesville, Ga. on the Cleveland Hwy.

    as an aside, I don’t see Dubb’s BBQ on your BBQ Thursday map. They are located up in Calhoun, GA. I know my brothers in the 1-108th Cavalry love to eat there during drill weekends. I use to not look forward to the trip up to Calhoun just for that! Next time you’re passing by, check it out.

    • 17 Stinky Pete July 3, 2013 at 1:10 am

      strike the word *not* from that sentence. I was going to say, I use to not like going up there except for Dubb’s…but then changed my mind to give it a more affirmative tone, but left the not in there! Thanks and G A T A DAWGS!!!!!

    I always like to check the map and reviews to find different places to try. For the Gator Bowl I actually stayed in Jacksonville (which was a weird experience) so drove I-75 back to Atlanta. Stopped in Valdosta at Smok’n Pig. It is a must try for any real fan. They have something like 6 different sauces. Do not bother with them. That is how good the pork is. The potato salad is too mayo for me (prefer more mustard) and beans had way to much of their original sauce for my taste. The Brunswick stew is above average and the mac and cheese is some of the best. However, it all begins and ends with the pork. Huge sandwich for reasonable price. Cooked like butter with a hint of smoke finish. You will not be disappointed.

      Hmmm, so many good places… as one poster stated above I am also a BBQ judge and unfortunately have become a BBQ snob as the stuff we eat in the competitions is way better than what you get in restaurants (obvious reasons – example the teams may cook 3,4,5 racks of ribs and pick out the 6 best individual ribs to submit to the judges, you just cant do that stuff at a rest.). My favorites are Bubba Q (in some ways, closest to competition BBQ), Fresh Air in Jackson, Joes in Blue Ridge.
      Big uns I thought was ok but nothing special, Vandys was good, Daddy D’s was good as well.
      Now there are a number of places in these comments I haven’t been to but will certainly hit them up whenever possible, and of course everyone has their personal favorite styles so what is the best ? The one YOU like the most !
