Wiley's Championship BBQ

As Wiley McCrary likes to tell his patrons, he's been "preachin' the good news gospel of the Church of the Holy Smoke" his entire life. That dedication is evident in every tender pull of pork from a St. Louis cut rib and every fork-tender bite of smoked brisket. After 11 years on the competition circuit and many awards later, Wiley retired with his wife, Janet, to Savannah from his native Atlanta, but he couldn't sit still for long. He finally realized his lifelong dream of opening a barbecue restaurant in 2008. Since then, the McCrarys' 30-seat, strip-mall enclave on Whitemarsh Island has been packing them in and topping every best-of list in the city and state.
