I think this is the Douglasville place that Shaun and I went to one time away back. Does the local origin of the sauce have anything to do with the local "Hickory House" chain? Can you call that a chain?

There's no connection between this place and Old Hickory House other than the similar name. I'm pretty sure that Old H.H. came first, in the mid-1960s. There's certainly nothing at all similar in the style of pork, sauces, or stew between them.

And yeah, I would call it a chain. I think that, at its peak in the late '70s, there were eleven Old Hickory Houses around Atlanta, but they've been holding steady with the final two remaining for about the last ten years.

"Husdon's style of BBQ is the only kind I will eat... I grew up on that stuff... If it is not soaking wet and juicy I don't want it. They used to be in Mableton when I was there till 6th grade and I guess they moved with me sort of LOL."
