Freash Air in Jackson
Pippins in McDonough
These are the best I have tried.
I hear Bart Hammock in Locust Grove is good but haven't tried it.He only sales take out.
 
Worst is COL Poodles in Elijay
hmmmmmm..........guess everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Ive had BBQ all over the southeast and I rank Col Pooles as pretty dang good. Certainly not the worst by any stretch.

to each their own.

I will have to agree with you. My moms kin people own Holcombs . I was raised on this BBQ and love the Stew it is great.

Also, Bar H in Roystons is good too.

Keep posting, I'm making a list for a road trip.


My favorites are:
Fresh Air in Jackson (you leave smelling like a hickory fire)
Old Clinton in Gray (childhood memories)
Fincher's in Macon

My favorite place of all time is Chuck's in Opelika, AL. The BBQ is excellent and Chuck is one of the finest people you will ever meet.

The worst I ever had was some place in Atlanta. Can't remember the name of it. Must be blocked from my memory to protect me from the horror. I drove by it the other day and saw it is out of business.
 
you have to watch out for the black hairs in your sandwhich at Bar-b-que shack in Toccoa.

Sonnys is terrible

Bar H is ok in Franklin springs

I was a huge Baty's Bar-b-que fan till he sold out and retired :(

Wallace's in Cedartown and Yorkville- The best.

Bar-B-Cutie in Woodstock is the worst by quite a margin IMHO. It should be a crime to call that stuff BBQ. Sprayberry's in Newnan is a close second for Worst in Georgia.

Col Poole's ain't the best, but it ain't the worst either.

Williamson Bros in Canton and Marietta is pretty good.

Two Brothers in Ballground is really good.
