We are renting a cabin for the week in Blue Ridge and would like any suggestions on who has the best BBQ in the area.

The cabin rental people told us about a place in Blairesville on the way out towards Helen, but that seems like a long drive.

Anyone know a place that smokes their meat with real wood and not fake liquid smoke, has great baked beans, and really good french fries?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Well, I actually smoke the best bbq in town, but won't have the smoker running 'til later in the week or you would be more than welcomed to come visit. For good bar-b-que in Blue Ridge, there are really only two choices...both good.

Blue Ridge BBQ on East 1st Street (across from Sue's) and Joe's BBQ, also on East 1st Street another 1/2 mile or so heading towards downtown. Joe's is usually only open Thurs-Sun (think that's right) and BR BBQ is normally closed on Monday. However, they sometimes change their operating times for holidays, when big crowds are in town, etc. I'm not sure where Joe's bbq is actually smoked, but it is good. BR BBQ actually smokes on premises. Enjoy!

We have found Rib Country in Blairsville or Murphy to be the best in the area. Great Carolina BBQ. Well worth the short drive.

I agree...Joe's is very good. Such a nice guy and seems to really appreciate your business. I would also say his place is one of the cleanest in Blue Ridge!

The absolute best BBQ is at Waffle King believe it or not! They put it on the smoker out front of the restaurant on Fridays so it is really good on Sat or Sundays. You can have a cold beer with it if you like. They are on Highway 515 next door to the Days Inn in Blue Ridge. I tried the others mentioned above but didn't like them as much as the Waffle King.

Everyone I know says this same thing though I have yet to try it. Joe's is good and has some unique items on the menu. And I must say I make the best roasted flesh planks you'll ever eat, I'm looking in to making my own perfected sauces too.

BBQ talk is what it takes for us all to have a civil discussion here, much thanks to the tourist who made this topic.

They still sell beer at Waffle King. I had a barbecue plate and a beer last Saturday. I also had a really good piece of cheesecake.

No BBQ joints in BR are worth a shit. Best bet is to smoke your own

When we want bbq, we go all the way to Canton for Williamson Brothers. Other than that, we do like Toccoa99 said and smoke your own. Buy a couple butts from ingles or soemwhere and smoke them for 10 hours or so at about 200-250 Oh yes... Cheaper taht way too. 2 butts will run you about 35 bucks but will make more than enough meat for 15 people eating.
