Southern Soul Barbeque Opening 2nd Location

I have good and bad BBQ joint news from a source close to Southern Soul Barbeque. The legendary Georgia Pig BBQ is closing down after some 30+ years as the current owners have decided to retire and relax after a great run (that’s the bad news).

The good news is Southern Soul Barbeque of St. Simons Island, Georgia is taking over operations at the I-95 south Georgia landmark and are in the process of preparing for a grand opening/relaunch by April. Officially it will operate as Southern Soul Barbeque so folks can expect the high quality hardwood smoked meats, Brunswick stew, and dedication to BBQ tradition SSBBQ is known for.

You can see their new location HERE. As I get more details from the guys at Southern Soul I’ll pass them along immediately.

  5. Griff said that Glynn County condemned the building, so they won’t be opening at the Georgia Pig location in Brunswick.
