BBQ capital of the universe is Columbus, GA

Been watching multiple episodes of you visiting BBQ joints tonight. You really must visit the BBQ capital of the universe: Columbus, GA. The west GA-east ALA sauce around my adopted hometown is like nothing else I've found anywhere: mustardy, vinegary, but NO SUGAR. Tangy as all get-out. Only when the sugar is out of the way is the full flavor of the pork revealed. Here is a map of Columbus food I made for my friend's daughter, who is set to enter Columbus State University this fall: Notes on the map: (1) Clearview BBQ is probably my overall favorite, though I still need to try Brennan Road BBQ, which is highly recommended. (2) Chester's was named best in USA by Steve Harvey, but its sauce is sweet--uncharacteristic of Columbus. (3) Don't miss the coconut cream pie at Country's BBQ. (4) The scramble dog at Dinglewood Pharmacy is a unique Columbus tradition. (5) Drive 30 minutes to Opelika, AL and eat at Chuck's BBQ (not on my map); trust me on this. (6) Just try'em all. Prepare to stay in Columbus awhile. (7) Sue Phillips is my mom; drop by and say hi. Love the show!
