Garden & Gun’s BBQ Sandwich Guide

Garden & Gun’s BBQ Sandwich Guide

Garden and Gun magazine can be a treasure trove of Southern foodways, drinking, and all-around Southern culture, though of the decidedly “not on the skids” type. The most recent issue featured a roundup of 21 spots to indulge in a BBQ sandwich. I wouldn’t call this the definitive guide to BBQ sandwiches by any means, but the fact that they included Payne’s in Memphis (pictured above) instantly established the credibility of this list in my mind, as I have never had a finer sandwich in my life than the one at Payne’s. Here in Atlanta, there’s no arguing with the selection of newcomer Heirloom Market, who is shaking things up with a bit of a Korean twist to traditional Southern BBQ.

So, in order to help everyone navigate the world of great BBQ sandwiches (just in time for any Fourth of July roadtrips), we put together this handy Google map of the spots featured in the article. Happy eating!
