While Atlanta may not have a distinct barbecue style of its own, the city still takes its smoked meat seriously, with hundreds of ’cue joints, both old-school and new, offering tomato-based sauce-slathered ribs, pulled pork sandwiches and brisket. Keep an eye out for the local specialty Brunswick stew, a thick, tomato-based concoction loaded with bits of smoked pork, beef and vegetables. Start at ramshackle 65-year-old pork institution Harold’s, whose sign features a pig in sunglasses, then move on to the Texas-style grub at the cultishly loved Fox Brothers BBQ, which began as a once-a-week pop-up at a local bar in 2004 before expanding to a brick-and-mortar location a few years ago.
