Alternatives to Southern Soul BBQ
I'm going on a trip down the GA coast later in the month and I was planning on going to Southern Soul BBQ. I heard about the fire they had, and I doubt they will have rebuilt by the time I'm down there. What are some good alternatives to Southern Soul BBQ in the Brunswick - St. Simons Island area that represent the style of BBQ from that part of GA? (I believe that includes Brunswick stew.)
These restaurants have been mentioned on Chowhound and seem to be highly rated. You can research them on Chowhound.
Sonny's is on I 95. Southern Soul was the best. Try GA Pig.

Souther Soul is serving a limited menu every day until 6 at the concession stand at the old coast guard station by East Beach. Twin Oaks is my 2nd choice, cross 17 at the end of the causeway left on L @ Oyster shack, right on Norwich. Southern Soul should have their summer menu on their website, they said they will be doing a different special each day along with the pulled pork, smoked chicken salad & wainwright's sausage dogs, my personal favorite.
I ate at Southern Soul today. The BBQ today was some of the best BBQ I have ever had -- anywhere! These guys have it down.
Twin Oaks would be second for me. They are only upon Mon-Fri for lunch, I think. As long as you stay on Gloucester-->Norwich Street, you'll be just fine.
Mack's has a new owner. It was good two weeks ago and terrible last week. Totally inconsistent.

I used to eat at Twin Oaks some years back whenever I was in town, but having eaten at Southern Soul, there's just no reason to go anywhere else for 'que in the Brunswick area. I'm sure they welcome any and all business that will allow them to get back open in their permanent location. Go help 'em out and have a fantastic meal.
