A Guide

Last night Georgia Public Television broadcast a program on barbecue restaurants in the Atlanta area. I thought it appropriate to start a blog on Georgia barbecue since so many people claim to be experts on the subject, and to give folks a medium to post their thoughts on this delicacy. I have several qualified contributors already, but if you have anything to add, please send me a message.

• Barbecue fans — and who isn't — will want to check out New Q: A Twist on Old School BBQ Saturday. The event brings together top-shelf chefs who will put their spin on an old-fashioned favorite. From 1 to 5 p.m., the Studioplex at 659 Auburn Ave. will be a Q-lover's paradise with dishes prepared by Gerry Klaskala of Aria, Joe Truex of Repast, Shaun Doty of Shaun's, Linton Hopkins of Restaurant Eugene and others. Sweetwater brews and wines from local vineyards will be paired. Tickets are $25; proceeds benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank. For tickets, call 1-800-364-0644.

I have been to the Smoking Pig in Macon and also Valdosta. The food was good the servings were large and the price was reasonable.
