Marie Let's Eat visits Cabin Creek BBQ in Nicholson, GA. Takeaway is skip the BBQ and stay for the Bruinswick stew. "What I do want to note here is that this is some of the best Brunswick stew that I have ever had. It is astonishing, incredibly rich and meaty and seasoned just perfectly. It is thick and red and will leave you melting into a happy and content puddle. If any of you good people are missing the legendary stew of Harold’s in Atlanta, this might make for a pretty good replacement in your affections. I consider it up there with Turn-Around and Speedi-Pig as worth considering among the best in Georgia."

Big Wayner BBQ Blog reviews Fox Bros BBQ Sauce. "Honestly, I was ready to write this sauce off. I tried it on chicken in a few different combinations – as a finishing sauce, as a marinade, and as a condiment. Out of those three, I was happiest with it used as a condiment, and even then it was just okay. It gave great color when used as a finishing sauce, but I just wasn’t thrilled with the flavors it added."

No Excuses BBQ is too busy for low and slow! So hot and fast was the order of the day with his BBQ brisket.

The point was very moist when chopped; my only regret was not having time to turn it into burnt ends."
