As I said in an earlier update from the weekend, when I was a kid I remember there being five grand Georgia barbecue joints: Fresh Air Barbecue (near Jackson); Harold’s Barbecue (Atlanta – closed in the summer of 2012); Melear’s BBQ (Fayetteville – closed in early 2011); Sprayberry’s (Newnan) and Vandy’s Bar-B-Q (Stateboro) We had […]


Ever since I was a kid, even before I knew that I loved barbecue, I knew about Vandy’s Bar-B-Q.  The famed Atlanta writer Lewis Grizzard perpetually claimed they had the best Brunswick stew in the world, and some of the finest barbecue in the state.  This was before there was an internet for all of […]


After stopping at Furniture Liquidators in Forsyth (a great place to find furniture – they buy out hotels that are being renovated and resell those pieces at reasonable prices), we saw the sign for This Little Piggy Bar B Q.  They were about to open as we drove by, so after a fruitless visit to […]

On this rainy Saturday evening, we headed down to Fairburn to meet up with some friends to see “110 in the Shade” at the theater downtown.  They had picked up the tickets for a group of ten of us and we said that we’d meet at Oz Pizza for dinner before the show.  We arrived […]


For the last six months, at the least, everyone has been telling me how good the fried chicken was at Table & Main.  But here’s the thing – you just can’t get to Roswell from our house at any time between 6:00 am – 10:00 pm.  Which really puts a damper on eating there.  Earlier […]
