Tomorrow marks Community Q's first anniversary since opening its doors. Happy Birthday to you Community Q! In a very short period of time, Community Q has joined the short list of metro Atlanta's very best BBQ destinations, placing it amongst such heavy hitters as Fox Bros., Dave Poe's, Pig-n-Chik, and Sam's BBQ 1. One of the things that I find most interesting about eating at Community Q is the daily special list. I snapped the picture at left during today 's lunch. While some specials like the kitchen sink and the redneck chicken salad appear so frequently as to be near de facto menu items, there are always a few extra veggie sides and the occassional soup available to take your BBQ experience to the next level. Often times the daily veg specials are tied in to the farm fresh veggies available for purchase right next to the register. As far as I know, Star Provisions/Bacchanalia and Community Q are the only restaurants in Atlanta to offer natural, local farm veggies for sale as take home items for their diners. Today I was able to sample the smoked turkey that Community Q is adding to its menu in a limited capacity for the holiday season. It was extremely moist and had just the right amount of smoke. If it is available for lunch or dinner on your next visit to Community, you MUST try it. It's that good. I saw a sign on the door stating that you can order turkeys or spiral hams for Thanksgiving (in fact, Community Q will be open for pre-order pickup from 10-12 on Thanksgiving Day). In the past, I have ordered turkeys and hams from both Dave Poe's and Sam's BBQ1 in Marietta. I can wholeheartedly endorse outsourcing in this manner. In fact, I'm sure Dave and Sam are offering similar pre-orders for Gobbler day. Take a tip from me and get your name on one of their lists soon. The lists always sell out and for good reason. You can give your family a holiday meal that they won't forget and you can take all the credit.
