Fodor's Expert Review Poole's Bar-B-Q
It's hard to miss this East Ellijay barbecue legend. Just look for the roadside "Pig Hill of Fame," a mass of pig-shape signs memorializing the more than 3,000 hogs who have sacrificed their lives for some seriously good 'cue. The owner, Oscar "Colonel" Poole, is quite the colorful character. Try the pulled pork, mac and cheese, and tangy Brunswick stew.
