One of the older barbecue joints in the Okefenokee area is Jimbo s Log Kitchen in Homerville, which is southwest of Waycross. It has been around since 1936 and has a good reputation. When you walk into Jimbo s, you see the meat being cooked on an open pit
I ate there at the end of October and was somewhat disappointed. The pork was cut into big chunks. Some of my meat was dry and had some fat. This was the only time I have been there, so maybe I hit them on a bad day.
On the positive side, the Brunswick stew was excellent. Also, Texas toast was served instead on soft white bread. So if I go to Jimbo s again, I plan on getting a large bowl of the stew instead of the barbecue.
In Waycross, I have heard that The Pig barbecue joint on State St. has some good meat. It is a tiny hole-in-the-wall type place with a limited menu. But I have not eaten in Waycross, so I can t make any specific recommendations.
If you have time for any touring, the General Coffee State Park east of Douglas is a neat state park. It has an 1800 s log cabin that is one of the oldest houses in South Georgia. It has excellent craftsmanship and was built when this part of Georgia was still part of the frontier.
Pa-Bill s BBQ in Douglas has excellent, sloppy Georgia-style barbecue. But it is a take-out place. Only one old picnic table out in front and that s it.
If you find a good place in the Waycross area, please follow up on your post with this information after your visit.
The Georgia Pig which has been reviewed on this site is a great place for good old fashioned BBQ. I wnt there while attending the Training Academy in Brunswick Georgia. I promise you won’t regret going there. I hope this link works????
