Last year, readers named DAS BBQ the fan favorite of Atlanta's barbecue scene. This year, we're back, taking a fresh look at who has the best 'cue game in the city—but who will smoke the competition? That's where you, our readers, come in.

In this year's bracket, you'll find familiar faces, rising stars, and even a newcomer or two. It's never easy to narrow down Atlanta's incredible abundance of barbecue restaurants, but these were the 16 at the top of our dining team's mind this year, with the acknowledgement that we can't fit every excellent eatery specializing in barbecue on a bracket. 

Starting August 13th, register with a valid email address and vote once a day, every day of this four-round showdown to help your favorite make it to the top. All valid registrations will automatically be entered in a random drawing to win two VIP Whiskey Festival tickets (valued at $100 each) and a $50 Fifth Group gift card. You must be 21 years of age to participate. For additional information, please see our Official General Contest Rules.

  • Round 1: 8/13-8/19
  • Round 2: 8/20-8/26
  • Round 3: 8/27-9/2
  • Round 4: 9/3-9/9

After the bracket closes on September 9th, we'll tally up the votes and announce the champion of this year's BBQ Bracket on September 12th. May the best people's choice of brisket, butt, and burnt ends win!
