I recently did a story for Delta Magazine on Memphis barbecue. They wanted some places that were a bit more off the beaten path than our usual stand out places like Rendezvous, Corkey’s and Central BBQ.
I took a poll and asked as many people who wanted to answer about what their favorite barbecue was in Memphis. I did the math and the places mentioned in the story were the top favorites.
There are so many great BBQ places in Memphis, many great places went unnamed. If you have a favorite that was not mentioned, feel free to name it in the comments.
The places I visited, photographed and wrote about were, Paynes, The Bar-B-Q shop, Leonard’s, Cozy Corner and Blues City Cafe.
