Atlanta Bar-B-Q Club
Members of the Atlanta Bar-B-Q Club aren’t just connected their shared tastes. These meat-lovers want to know everything about the craft and care put into savory barbecue meals. They satisfy this hunger for knowledge by gathering at a local barbecue joint for monthly “meatings,” communal feasts where barbecue experts give cooking tips. Between the monthly events, members also enjoy discounts at restaurants, including Jim ‘N Nicks and Pit Boss, all easily located thanks to the club-provided map of participating eateries and compass that always points towards the nearest plate of ribs. Members can attend invite-only parties hosted by fellow club members or chefs, tag along on field trips to the National BBQ Festival and other nearby cooking events, or judge dishes at the club’s own barbecue contest.
