Brinson’s is a well-loved institution in Jenkins County. Located south of Millen on West Old Savannah Road, you’ll know it’s open if there’s a plume of smoke pouring from the pits behind the simple cinder block building and a parking lot full of pickup trucks. Unless you have a big appetite, order the small barbeque plate! I ordered the regular and it was enough food for two people. (They also have a large plate). The sauce is a bit tangier than you’ll find further south in Georgia, but it was very good. And the Brunswick stew was served over rice, not something often seen in restaurants. Three slices of Sunbeam bread, a generous helping of potato salad, and Brinson’s sweet tea complete this classic Southern meal. Brinson’s actual address, in case you need to put it in your GPS: 3924 West Old Savannah Road, Millen, Georgia 30442. Their telephone number is (478) 982-4570.
You may notice the photo is in a different format than I usually post. I’m now using Instagram from time to time, and even though it’s not my favorite format, it’s a way for me to share in real time. Beware though, as you’ll also see more random photos from my yard and garden, and of my friends and family and you might find more than a few typos. I’ve not mastered “devices” beyond my laptop just yet. If you use Instagram on mobile phones, you can find me as brianbrownphotography. Online, it’s http://instagram.com/brianbrownphotography
