The “Southern Soul” of Barbecue

25 Jun

You can’t leave out the South if you want some good BBQ! It’s definitely one of my favorite styles of food, and one of the best places I’ve ever had it is probably Southern Soul on St. Simons Island, Georgia.  You might recall my visit last time to St. Simons and Jekyll Island located in south Georgia a while back.  Food was good then, and food there is good now!

But don’t just take it from me that Southern Soul is delicious, it’s also been featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives in the episode of “Old Time Attitude”.

Here’s some of what my friends and I ordered at Southern Soul:

  • Beef Brisket Plate with Collard Greens and Fried Okra.  I am seriously getting hungry as I think about this and look at the picture below.  Beef, collard greens, fried okra with a big glass of sweet tea.  Nothing else I want more right now than this.

  • Half slab of Ribs with Fried Okra and Mac and Cheese.  I’m not the biggest fan of Mac and Cheese, but those looked delicious, and the half slab or ribs made me feel like I should’ve ordered multiple entrees.

Looks delicious, right? If you want to drool some more over what they have, check out their menu here.

Thanks to my friend Dustin for the pictures! As usual, the old phone I had at the time was horrible at doing anything at the time.

    YUM! Southern fried okra. Ain’t nothing like it. I was introduced to it back in 1961. Now I’m hungry again.

      Fried Okra is literally one of my favorite food! Also, I feel you. I am always hungry after writing/reading/looking at the pictures on my food blog :/

      Your ribs looked delish. Your food ribs. Not your human ribs.

    After living in TX for 7+ years one develops a penchant for BBQ. It’s not too terribly difficult to smoke a huge rack of ribs or brisket. Time consuming, yes. Difficult, no. I’ve learned that I love southern food! Greens, corn bread (on cheat days), and BBQ are a few of the reasons I doubt I’ll ever leave.
