Jackson BBQ Restaurant Remains "Fresh" for 87 Years:  The year 1929 will be forever remembered as the year of Black Tuesday, when the stock market crashed and triggered the Great Depression.  But that was also the year a little establishment began serving barbecue in Jackson, Georgia -- and amazingly, after all these years, Fresh Air Barbecue is still doing the same thing.

Fresh Air Barbecue was created in 1929 by Dr. Joel Watkins, as a small roadside establishment where customers ordered at the window and ate outside.  Butts County's George W. "Toots" Caston bought the restaurant in the mid-1940s and expanded the business, adding his father's Brunswick Stew to the menu and perfecting the famous Fresh Air Barbecue sauce.  Today, Fresh Air Barbecue remains a family business, and Caston's descendants still serve up the barbecue and Brunswick Stew that have made the restaurant and local favorite for eight decades -- and along with the original Jackson location, a second restaurant is now operated in Macon.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning in Jackson, learning a little more about why Fresh Air Barbecue tops many lists of best BBQ in Georgia.
