Best stew by far is at Good Hope General store in Good Hope Ga. It’s meaty not liquid. Just right. $10 a qt.

I have found that folks down in east central Ga like a really liquid stew with a strong tomatoe taste. Examples are Holcombs and Heavy’s.

Ware's BBQ in Swainsboro. Will be a line out the door on Saturdays and if the meat is gone it is gone for the day.

Generally will get a couple pulled pork sammichs and a brisket potato. Good stuff.

I will agree with this post. We had some of the stew from the GH Gen. store the other night and it was mighty fine!!!

have not tried Big Daddys in grayson yet. thanks for heads up on it..my go to is foggy bottom in loganville. BBQ chicken nachos are very good..and the nanner pudding is just right to top off a platter of chopped Q.

We tried one north of Pat's backwater grill, pretty close to the interstate. We had to wait quite a while to be seated. We weren't impressed.......
 
Woodstack BBQ in Valdosta will change your life!!! It's the best BBQ I've ever had.

I would like to say I ate at Fresh Air in Jackson for the first time recently, it wasn't near as good as its Macon counterpart. Macon sauce and stew just has a little more kick and flavor to it. The chopped stuff was mushy too in Jackson. The atmosphere was cooler though.
 
Found another good stew. They closed the GH store down a few weeks due to the virus. H22 found some good stew at The Iron Pig in Jefferson. H22 doesn't buy BBQ meat cause we like his homemade just fine, but I have had the iron pig BBQ with my Diddi and it's good too.
 
Best- Deans in Jonesboro. Fox Bros in Atl..Southern Soul in St Simons.. Fat Macs in Atl
Worst- Sprayberrys in Newnan (banana pudding is superb , sauce is horrible), Fresh Air although stew is decent, sauce terrible, chopped pork mushy

Dean's burned down and has been closed for years.

I actually like sprayberry's sauce because i love vinegar. It will almost take your breathe away. Many years ago they had good bbq when they cooked it on the old outside pit . When i was working graveyard shift i would see the original owner in his 70's there 4:00 morning putting the meat on.
