Atlanta Magazine - Atlanta's Best BBQ
Atlanta Magazine's July addition rate's Atlanta's Best BBQ.
Here is their top 5
1. Hickory Pig - Gainsville, GA (63 miles north of Atlanta)
2. Sam's BBQ1
3. Swallow at the Hallow
4. P'cheen - Monday Night is BBQ night
5. Blind Pig BBQ - Jackson, GA(50 miles south of Atlanta)
I do agree that both Sam's BBQ1 and Swallow at the Hallow are both good BBQ joints. Swallow at the Hallow is overpriced and abuses the use of sauce. BBQ1 is just good, maybe not the best but very good. The rest are either too far away or only serving BBQ on Mondays.
The article also has a one page BBQ DIY article. It is based on Sam Huff's PorkU. (Sam is the owner of Sam's BBQ1). Matt attended PorkU a couple of weeks ago and a write up is coming.
