I love love love the coleslaw at Fresh Air BBQ in Jackson, Ga. I have tried to find the recipe online with no luck. Is anyone familiar with this style coleslaw so that you can tell me how to make it? I cant ask the folks at the restaurant because they are far far away. Thank you!

They're only as far away as the internet: they have a contact form and their phone number is on their website.

I really love Fresh Air, too, but I can't exactly remember their cole slaw (I mostly remember the best barbecue and stew ever in my entire life--they catered my grandma's 80th birthday and it was amazing). The secret I've found to good Southern cole slaw is to add the juice from a jar of sweet pickles, and based on my recollection, that might be part of their recipe. I don't have any plans to go to Jackson soon (and sadly, the Athens store closed), but if you don't get a response online, I will definitely ask the next time I'm in Jackson.

The best pro-tip for coleslaw is to salt the cabbage and let it sit for several hours. This releases the excess water and makes the slaw much less runny.

This recipe claims to be a reasonable facsimile.
