BBQ Tour: BBQ1

So in our long journey of bbq joints around Atlanta we had another visit. This place was mentioned by Robert Duvall when a movie he was filming had food catered by Sam's BBQ1. The restaurant is newly opened and is located over off Johnson Ferry and Lower Roswell Road in Marietta. The place was famous for its catering and its take out counter two doors down from the newly opened restaurant location. The restaurant is unassuming, which is a great sign of a good bbq spot. If they spend a lot of time on the decor that is time taken away from smoking the meats. It is counter service, where you walk up to order and they bring out your plate. We visited during lunch and hit it just right, we beat the crowd and had a great meal.

I went with the smoked sausage plate, which is hard to find in GA for sure. I had mac & cheese and fried okra. The sides were generous and the sausage was the lunch portion and it was almost too much for one serving. The sweet tea was perfect and the house Kansas City bbq sauce was good as well. They also host "Pork U" classes where you can sign-up to learn how to cook and prepare bbq pork.

I would recommend this place, especially if you are over in the area. I definitely would like to go back to try the brisket to see how it compares to Fox Bros. Overall I would give it 3 out of 5 beers. We have a few more spots on our list, so more to come. Enjoy!!
