Found Matzos at Publix... in Macon, but I have been really wanting smoked Whitefish. And Halavah, which isn't technically "kosher", but I can't find that either. I've been having to drive an hour to Macon or Milledgeville for Lox, but the local Walmart just started carrying some. Only took them a year:rolleyes:

I'm beginning to think a 2 hour drive to Atlanta is my only option? Really?

There is always Augusta and Savannah. Honestly, the best kosher deli in Atl. for years was Baron's.... long gone. The four or five Kroger stores listed seem to do a good job of meeting the needs of the Jewish communities around, but I have no idea of how many still keep kosher. Used to be a rather large number in the 50's and 60's.

The Kroegers I went to in Macon were pretty skimpy on most of the stuff I wanted, but they had Matzos, Lox, and maybe gifelta fish- which I never could eat. Not really a whole lot, until you compare the local walmart.

One of the reasons you don't see many Kosher places in the south is most Jews in the south are Reform Jews. They are suppose to keep a strict kosher kitchen and diet, but most don't except during Passover and other Holy Days. Most don't eat pork, but that is about the only Kosher thing they really do in day to day life and I have known many that ate pork anyway.

I really didn't expect this to be a huge location for Jews, but still a little surprised that it is at least 2 hours in any direction to find a deli. Maybe I'll have better luck finding somebody to ship me a fix once in a while?

This best online sources are expensive.... N.Y. and N.J. seem to stand out on the East coast. Happy hunting!

It does look like it could be pricey to order. While we were in Macon yesterday, I asked bout some smoked whitefish. I was told they could order it, but I'd have to get 5 lbs. This place (http://www.charliessmokehouse.com/products.htm), I can get 3 lbs for $18, plus shipping. Next payday...

Four hours? Add two more, and I could be in Daytona. Hmmm...

There is a place in Macon called Papoulis Medeterranean Cafe on Tom Hill close to Publix. Not a lot of kosher items but they do have Hallaval( 3 flavors), and a lot of other stuff like it in their deli section. They also have really great gyros and chicago italian beef.

Thanks Charlie, I'll check them out the next time I'm there. We tried Metroplis down the road, next to the Best Western. Food wasn't bad, huge portions and dollar beer :)

Is there a difference between kosher smoked fish and cracker smoked fish? I'm an expert fish smoker! I can send you all you want -"if it fits,it ships."

That wouldn't be kosher at all, LOL

Kosher food is not supposed to be prepared where non Kosher is prepared.:bounce::bounce:

So far, I'm looking at about $49 for two pounds of Whitefish from Atlanta, and that is before overnight shipping. I'm thinking the wife would have my matzos if I did that... Oy!

This might provide what you want, smoked or shipped for you to smoke. Got no idea on price, but might be worth a call.

I checked another place up in Wisconsin, and it was still going to be like $39 to ship overnight... because it is fish, and lets face it, USPS is not the way to go :)
