Memphis road trip
« on: October 15, 2018, 05:56:23 PM »
We decided to spend a few days of our fall break vacation in Memphis, TN.  While I’m from Chicago and live in Indiana, my mom was born and raised in Memphis.  I consider myself half southern [emoji16]I spent many a summer vacation there and it’s also where I learned to love bbq.  There are more bbq restaurants in Memphis than anywhere in the  US. 

We did our obligatory visit to the Rendezvous.  If you have never been there, it’s a must. 
I love blues too, so Beale street was another spot. 


We finished our trip heading a bit more south in Clarksdale, Mississippi, home of the delta Blues Museum. 


We ate lunch in a great bbq joint in Clarksdale called Abe’s bbq, which is next to the “crossroads,” made famous by Robert Johnson.  Great day, great music, great bbq.

Looks like a great trip!  That sandwich looks incredible too. What was your families favorite bbq place out of the ones you ate at?

I like corkys in Memphis. Interstate bbq is good too.

Memphis is where I was born and raised till about two years ago. There are a lot of hidden bbq joints all over the metro area and outside the metro area. Great place, miss the food and music. But it’s a very violent city. Be careful when out and about.
