Talking Memphis BBQ
We went to Memphis for one thing really. The top of our list of things to do in Memphis was eating BBQ. When doing our research, one place kept coming up as one of the best Memphis BBQ joints: Central BBQ.
We arrived just before lunchtime to talk Memphis BBQ with Rodger Sapp, one of the owners of Central BBQ. From his early beginnings, eating BBQ with his father, to becoming passionate about BBQ, it all lead him to Central BBQ.
Central BBQ Memphis is Low and Slow
What makes Memphis BBQ unique? What’s the difference between a pig and a whole hog? What makes their wings so perfect? What is the difference between dry rub and wet ribs? What makes good BBQ great?
And it wasn’t all about Memphis BBQ, but we also got to eat some locally famous, life changing banana pudding. Oh, and pulled BBQ pork nachos. There is so much BBQ talk in this food travel podcast that I was drooling just listening to the playback.
