  2. i love it all, i love the south carolina’s vinegary pulled pork, i love the semi spicy, oh so juicy texas pulled pork, and ribs, get me started on ribs, cut em up st louis style and slather them in a sweet sauce (or not like memphis dry) and i’ll eat em all the live long day!

  3. I’m a Texas boy and I grew up eating brisket. To this day, that remains my favorite. Slow smoked, zesty, fork tender brisket!!!

  4. Since moving to NC I miss the sweet BBQ sauce you get in Fla where I use to live I like the vinegar based but sometimes I want a sweet mixed with a mustard.I have had GA BBQ and it is out of this world

  5. Gonna have to make the couple hour drive up and check it out! Sweet and spicy pulled pork is my favorite.

  6. I really do love all types of barbecue. Southern BBQ has a special spot in my heart, since I grew up in North Carolina. I’ve lived all over though, so I appreciate the time and effort the results all over the country and overseas as well. Keep those fires burning!

  7. Brisket. Brisket. Brisket. Sadly, great brisket
    is hard to find in DFW. When I was growing up
    in duncanville, we loved Bodascious BBQ. The
    brisket was tender, flavorful and well smoked.
    Wish they were still around.

    Comment by Mike Howard — February 5, 2011 @ 5:16 am

  10. Pulled pork sandwich with slaw. Carolina or Island style (love the Kalua pig.

    Comment by Devon — February 5, 2011 @ 9:26 am

  11. Do I really have to pick a favorite? OK… If I have to, it’s brisket. Spare ribs would come in a close second.

    Comment by Jason — February 7, 2011 @ 2:54 pm

  17. I would out the fried green beans in a hall of fame for sides if I could. I love the knuckle sandwiches…Blenheim Ginger ale to wash it down…yum!

  18. grew up in Memphis, ate barbeque all my life but finally found the Nirvana of Barbeque at Southern Soul. Saw it on Diners,Drive-ins and dives and drove down from Savannah the next day. Met people who saw the show from canada. AWESOME meal and new friends- how good can life get!!

    Comment by john — February 7, 2011 @ 7:31 pm

  19. Ribs are my main choice for BBQ but love the Southern Soul pulled pork sandwich with both the Sweet Ga Brown Sauce and the Mustard Sauce together.

    Comment by Rick Segers — February 7, 2011 @ 8:09 pm

  20. All BBQ is good, love cooking for fun and competitions.

    Comment by joey boyd jobeazbbq — February 8, 2011 @ 1:22 am

  21. Pulled pork and ribs are my favorite but I want to try some good brisket.

    Comment by David Lassiter — February 8, 2011 @ 1:27 am

  22. Pork… beef… as long as it’s cooked low and slow over coals or wood, I’m a happy man.

    Comment by Wayne Brown — February 8, 2011 @ 3:20 am

  23. I live in Atlanta where we have no true BBQ style. As such, I’ve become quite a hybrid with regards to my Q preferences. I grew up in SC so a good mustard sauce is hard for me to pass up. That said, I also make a sauce that blends NC vinegar with the sweetness you find in KC. To be honest though, great BBQ if cooked right doesn’t even need a sauce. My 3 favorite Q joints are:
    1) Southern Soul – my mother-in-law lives on the island and I eat here multiple times per trip
    2) The Joint – New Orleans, LA
    3) Carolina Bar-B-Que – New Ellenton, SC

  24. Here piggy piggy. Thats some good Q at Southern Soul BBQ!

    Comment by Kevin Ross — February 8, 2011 @ 9:56 pm

  25. It’s got to be the RIBS (pork) Any Dry Rub over Sauce…2nd place goes to Tri-Tip (Santa Maria style) Those Bad Boys are tough to BBQ right…but when you do, they are so tender!

    Comment by Cousin Joel — February 8, 2011 @ 10:16 pm

  26. smoke my own boston butts, but southern soul on st. simons island is my second choice, and first choice when i’m there. if you can quit eating the q, the menu is amazing. specials, extras, good people.

    Comment by ben fishn — February 9, 2011 @ 1:29 am

  27. For me the true test of a BBQ joint is the sausage. Ribs…beef and pork. Love em both. Pulled pork sandwich from SSBBQ was awesome. We have great beef bbq here in Austin but pulled pork with vinegar or mustard based sauce is hard to come by. Wish you werent so far away.

    Comment by Linda Burnett — February 9, 2011 @ 5:15 am

  28. I don’t know where to start! Southern Soul’s smoked turkey is amazing! I love their ribs, beef brisket and pulled pork too! One of the best things on the menu is the unique Marley burrito. Love it! And all the wonderful variety of sauces of course.

    Comment by Carrie Arnold — February 9, 2011 @ 3:37 pm

  29. I LOVE Southern Souls pulled pork sandwich. It’s enough meat to make 3 sandwiches and the pork is perfectly cooked and couldn’t be any more moist. Adding their sauce to the meat makes it melt in your mouth. Actually I LOVE all bbq dishes but a regular old pulled pork sandwich is the way to go!

    Comment by Courtney Stiles — February 9, 2011 @ 5:04 pm

  30. I love all bbq, whether it has a vinegar bases sauce, or a sweet sauce I don’t care. As long as the ribs fall of the bone and the pulled pork and brisket are off the chain!

    Comment by Fred Salinas — February 9, 2011 @ 5:33 pm

  31. Love Southern Soul!

    Comment by G M Roberts — February 9, 2011 @ 8:15 pm

  32. I love any type of BBQ, as long as it’s not too hot.

    Comment by Lauren — February 9, 2011 @ 9:37 pm

  33. I like the Southern Soul Sweet Georgia Brown BBQ Sauce.

    Comment by Donna K — February 10, 2011 @ 1:28 am

  34. My favorite type of BBQ is baby back ribs with a lot of sauce. I like to get messy.

    Comment by Claudia — February 10, 2011 @ 1:30 am

  35. I like Texas style BBQ.

    Comment by Kristen — February 10, 2011 @ 2:34 am

  36. Low and slow southern style BBQ-for me it’s gotta be pork ribs or pulled pork OR chicken. Smoked over fruit wood with a sweet, spicy rub.

    Comment by Tony Morales — February 10, 2011 @ 5:29 am

  37. My Favorite BBQ would be pulled pork piled high on texas toast, covered in slaw, fried onion rings and a good rich sauce…MMMMMMMMMMMmmm Yummy :)

    Comment by Skeat Underwood — February 11, 2011 @ 1:27 am

  38. My favorite BBQ would be Pulled Pork, piled high on texas toast, covered in a good sweet cole slaw, and topped off with fried onion rins, the covered in a good rich sause..MMMMMMmm Yummyyyyyyyyyyy

    Comment by Skeat Underwood — February 11, 2011 @ 1:28 am

  39. LOVE Southern Soul. Their brisket is to die for, and I could drink Sweet Georgia Brown! But what I really love is their smoked chicken salad. And I’ve helped add to their fan base on that by word of mouth.

    Comment by Sharon Proudfoot — February 11, 2011 @ 1:55 am

  40. My favorite is BBQ chicken.

    Comment by Douglas DeMott — February 11, 2011 @ 9:47 am

  41. Southern Soul – I could take it any way. These boys know how to cook a pig and their sauce is off the HOOK! I am a Carolina girl and love me some SSI GA BBQ. To Be For Sure!

    Comment by Kati Hobson — February 11, 2011 @ 2:23 pm

  42. My fav bbq is full-flavored and taste-bud blowing intense, tender & chewable. For what I’ve been able to reach this past year at least, the TOP have been Franklin’s brisket from Austin and Louie Muehler’s beef rib ‘lollipops’ in Tyler, TX. Have also had amazing tastes in Memphis & N Carolina in the past, so don’t close my mind to ANY style, as long as it meets the mentioned criteria. The best EVER was probably brisket smoked by someone who said they fell asleep & smoked it ‘too long’… tasted at a private event. The stuff of Dreams. Oh, and of course, the main ingredient of all good BBQ, Love… but then, that’s where that flavor comes from, right?!

    Comment by Analog Girl — February 12, 2011 @ 6:43 am

  43. Sorry – typos!!! That should’ve been TAYLOR, TX for Louie MUELLER’s!! Typing too fast for tired eyes to spot :/. Don’t want anyone heading to the wrong part of this big state, LOL

    Comment by Analog Girl — February 12, 2011 @ 8:33 am

  44. Very nice! Would love to visit there one day and try out all the great food!

    Comment by William Hoover — February 12, 2011 @ 12:12 pm

  45. You know that Georgia Q has to be great.

    Comment by Marsh Pickett Jr. — February 12, 2011 @ 12:17 pm

  46. When you gotta have you some BBQ the place to go is Southern Soul, they really know how to cook it up just right :)

    Comment by Tonya — March 10, 2011 @ 2:55 pm

  47. Pulled pork shoulder! especially a pulled pork sandwich, with tangy bbq sauce, topped with cayenne cole slaw.

    Comment by Kevin Bobo — May 13, 2011 @ 4:36 am

  48. Favorite BBQ ~ everything that comes off a grill! Driving south from CAnada pretty soon and have already programed the GPS for the Southern Soul pit stop. We will be dining Feb. 11, 2012 :)
