Peg Leg Porker – Nashville, TN

The Bringles had been catering barbecue for about five years when they opened Peg Leg Porker, in the Gulch area of Nashville, back in 2013. On the last several trips to Nashville, I have had them on my list, but we hadn’t had the chance to swing by for a meal (pressing hot chicken needs, […]

Smitty’s Lockdown BBQ – Marietta, GA

After a little shopping in Marietta, we had time for lunch before we had to be downtown.  I had seen Smitty’s Lockdown BBQ, the last few times we had been on this part of Canton Rd. Today, we had time to stop in and arrived in time for lunch. Open since late 2016, I had […]

Cozy Corner – Memphis, TN

One of the spots on my Memphis barbecue ‘to-do” list (along with being on the 29 BBQ Bucket List and Garden ‘N Gun’s “BBQ Bucket List”) is Cozy Corner Restaurant, near downtown.  We arrived around 6:00 for “second dinner”.  Owned and operated by Raymond Robinson and his family since the late 70s, Cozy Corner is […]

Burn Co Barbecue – Jenks, OK

Smokie’s Hickory House – Broken Arrow, OK

Craig’s Bar-B-Q – Devalls Bluff, AR

Heading west, we had been driving on I-40 for a while, when a barbecue stop was necessitated.  Based on two references, over three or four years, from Garden ‘n Gun, we took the exit towards Devalls Bluff, Arkansas.  As we approached the white sign for Craig’s Bar-B-Q, it looked like my kind of place.  Middle […]

Ferris Wheeler’s Barbecue – Dallas, TX

8/15 11:45 On day two of my Dallas trip, I was meeting a friend for lunch.  What would we have?  Barbecue.  We tried to find a place, that was both open on Wednesday and that neither of us had been to previously and he gave me two choices: I opted for Ferris Wheeler’s Backyard & […]
