If you label it as “comfort food”, or if it is cooked on an open flame, you will find it in the Southern/BBQ scene in Birmingham. Everything from pork to ribs to Brisket to sausage. Bar-B-Q is no longer just for the smokehouse though. Unique southern eateries add in high-end ingredients and cooking methods, elevating their dishes to the next level. B-Metro agrees; New Southern Soul food is still your father’s Bar-B-Q, but with a new twist.
