Spring is here. I smell smoke.
My son and I had been wanting to try some new spots for a while and have been wanting to try Southern Soul Barbeque in St. Simons Island, GA for a long time and their recent naming as the #1 BBQ in the south by Southern Living Magazine just fueled the fire.http://www.southernliving.com/souths-best/bbq#southern-soul-barbecue-st-simons-island-georgia
We all agree that lists like this are subjective as hell and change with the wind. I don't argue with the lists instead use them as a guide. It has been a long favorite of Heartbreaksoup here on the forums so I reached out for pro tips from Grant. His main advice, get there early and order anything and everything. That's easy enough.
Seating is limited inside and there are picnic tables out front that fill quickly. We arrived 10 minutes after opening and grabbed seats at the bar. The picture below is 20 minutes after opening. Backed out the door.
Great selection of sauces.
My favorite is the Hot Georgia Soul.
3 meat combo of half a smoked chicken,pulled pork,smoked turkey,fried okra,and Brunswick Stew. Oh my..
3 meat combo of sausage,brisket,spare ribs,stew,and mac&cheese. Oh my X2.....
They also carry Topo Chico mineral water from Mexico. My 1st taste of it and I have already ordered more online. I am addicted.
Why,why,why did I wait so long to visit Southern Soul?
