Bleu House Market – Norcross, GA

I love the chance to meet one of my girls for lunch.  And when the lunch spot, unbeknownst to us, ends up being a barbecue spot, it’s a double win.  Looking for some place new to try, one of her co-workers told her that the Market, in Norcross, was her “kind of place”.  Unsure what […]

Scotty’s Soul Food – Midland, TX

Landing at Midland Air & Space* Port, I was confronted with lunch choices: chicken fried steak?  Or barbecue?  I decided on the former and asked the young lady at the car rental counter, “Who has the best chicken-fried steak in Midland or Odessa?”  She answered, without hesitation, “Scotty’s Soul Food.” Decision made.  I plugged the […]

Scott’s Pit Cooked Bar-B-Q – Hemingway, SC

For the last eight years, I’ve been wanting to eat barbecue at Scott’s Variety.  But it is slap dab in the middle of nowhere – 80 miles north of Charleston and 100 miles east of Columbia.  Not to mention more than 300 miles from home…  I just couldn’t find an excuse to get there.  The […]

Jim’s Smokin Que – Blairsville, GA

Rusty’s Bar-B-Q – Leeds, AL

Camping for the weekend in the Anniston – Oxford metroplex, one of my jobs was finding a lunch spot.  I pulled up the lists and found that I had very little that was less than an hour away.  Then I saw the note for Rusty’s Bar-B-Q which said “halfway between Birmingham and Taladega” and I […]

B’s Cracklin’Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, I heard that someone was smoking whole hog barbecue in northwest Atlanta.  I made a mental note and figured that I would hear more about it and get there soon enough. Two months passed by when I saw an online article from Atlanta magazine about pitmaster Bryan Furman, at B’s Cracklin’ Barbecue, […]

Jack’s Bar-B-Que – Nashville, TN

Not realizing that there was a free New Year’s Eve concert in downtownNashville, we headed down to Broadway to grab some lunch.  That explained the cordoned off streets and exorbitant parking (at noon).  We found a paid lot next to the Ryman and walked down to Broadway in the drizzle.  We turned the corner past […]
