Jim 'N Nick's Smokin' at the Whole Hawg Happenin'

This weekend, May 15th and 16th, Jim 'N Nick's among others will be firing up the rig at the Whole Hawg Happenin' in Atlanta. Local Owner, Brian Lyman and the Atlanta gang will be hosting a pitmaster dinner at the Jim 'N Nick's located on South Cobb drive featuring the likes of Ed Mitchell from The Pit in Raleigh, NC; Sam Huff from Sam's Lost Mountain BBQ in Atlanta and I'll have the honor of representing Jim 'N Nick's. Dinner is sure to be a party and the Happenin' to follow on Saturday will serve up, "everything but the squeal" as our buddy Ed Mitchell likes to say. Read more about the event at, check back here after the event for a full report from the JNN rig.

Slow Smoked, Slow Food, Slow Down...

A whole smoked hog, an organic urban garden and the attention to where our food comes from all add up to a Southern Slow Food Fair. Jim 'N Nick's is proud to be serving a whole Berkshire hog at the Southern Slow Food Fair at Jones Valley Urban Farm this Sunday May 3rd. The story of where food comes from will be told through the lens of how great ingredients are crafted with care into edible memories. A good time will be had by all so y'all come, Sunday May 3rd from 4 - 7 PM.
