We serve the Southeast's finest barbecued pork and Brunswick stew in our Jackson and Macon locations, and also offer catering throughout the region. Our award-winning Bar-B-Q is a tangy tomato and vinegar style known around the country.

Simplicity is the key word in our operation. To this day, the atmosphere and cooking methods have virtually remained unchanged, evoking a pleasant step back in time.

Our Classic Barbecue is made from pork hams, slowly cooked overnight, and served fresh daily with our savory tangy tomato and vinegar based sauce that has remained the same since the 1940's. Our Brunswick stew, an old family recipe from the late 1890's, is produced using the highest quality ingredients such as 100% eye of round roast beef.

What makes Fresh Air unique is the old-fashioned wood burning pit that many consider to be a working piece of Southern Barbecue History.  Wood is a very important aspect of cooking barbecue, giving it a distinct flavor. Fresh Air only uses a combination of Hickory and Oak.  We take great pride in cooking our food the same way it has been cooked for over 80 years.
