Then go to One & Only BBQ in Memphis. The texture of the meat is great, the dry rub is great, the sides and desserts are great, but there is no woodpile, no smoker, no smoke ring and no smoke taste. The fact that a BBQ place can get away with this in Memphis, mere blocks from Corky's, where smoke pours freely, is a sign of the times with regard people's definition of BBQ. If it can happen in Memphis, it can happen anywhere. Stay vigilant out there, boys.

In order to undo that smokeless experience, I plan to hit up Scott's BBQ, one of the last bastions of whole hog BBQ, in Lexington this Thursday.
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.
