Savannah Barbecue-Long

Last week ,on our way to judge the Charleston,SC barbecue cookoff,we stopped at a new Q joint in the suburbs on the south side of Savannah, Coffee Bluff Barbecue.

I'll make the standard disclaimer that I have no interest in any of these places and had never met the operators.

We stopped at three other Q joints on the trip up I-95.

I had never been there,but can easily say it was far superior to the well known Savannah places I have visited in past years.

The pork sandwich was 1/2 lb. of good lean smoked pork ,with a 1/2 lb. side of your choice.

The dinners contain 1/2 lb. of lean smoked meat,two 1/2 lb. sides and Texas toast.

They use a good slab of ribs,trimmed to St. Louis style so you don't get all the waste.

They offer three sauces,mild and spicey red and a mustard based-all naturally on the side.

They cook with a blend of apple and mesquite.

We especially liked the Brunswick stew and the steak fries, made from huge smoke cooked baking potatoes with a cajun like seasoning.

They also have a huge smoked baking potato,hollowed out and stuffed with 1/2 lb. of pork,cheese,etc.

I can't believe the portions at the price,but they apparently have a low facility cost and all family labor.

It was real easy to order more than most can comfortably eat at a meal.
