Slope’s BBQ – Cumming, GA

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a barbecue snob.  I’ve known it for a while, but today really drove the point home.  When I leave this much on a plate, it’s just not a good sign.. Slopes’s BBQ has been on a secondary list of Atlanta area barbecue joints since July of 2010. They […]

Weaver D’s Delicious Fine Foods – Athens, GA

Standing in the doorway, looking both at the sign on the sidewalk that said open 11-6 on Saturday and the closed sign in the window, I’m sure I looked like a dog that had just heard a high pitched noise. Since “the game was out of town and he had to cook for a funeral”, […]

Jim’s Smokin Que – Blairsville, GA

We’re coming to you today near the end of the Six Gap trail, in Blairsville, with lunch at Jim’s Smokin Que.  This spot comes to us courtesy of a Trip Advisor ranking of barbecue joints from a couple of years back, in which they ranked fairly highly, nationally.  Being on Six Gap trail, there were […]

Diner.  They declare their ideology very clearly:   We proudly use organic, local and natural ingredients, free of chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, growth hormones, synthetic herbicides and pesticides, ammonia and other additives. All […]

Southern Smoq Bar-B-Q – Flowery Branch, GA

I’d like to start this entry with a tip of the hat to Marie, Let’s Eat for pointing me toward Southern Smoq Bar-B-Q.  When I got the email signalling the blog entry about their visit, I was excited to find a new place (relatively) near my office that was getting good reviews.  I have a […]

Mot’s Bar-B-Que – Augusta, GA

As a bit of general advice, the worst time in the world to go on a barbecue hunt is the week of the 4th of July.  Not thinking that through completely, as we were heading over to Charleston for a long weekend, I had a couple of places in mind to try along the way.  […]

‘cue Barbecue – Cumming, GA

When I was looking to meet someone for a work lunch, somewhere between Duluth and Alpharetta, we had settled for Dreamland on Peachtree Parkway.  The next day, we both acknowledged we were merely “settling” (as none of the Atlanta-area franchises can approach the Alabama locations) and I had to find some place else.  So I […]
