      I give them 3.5 stars out of 5. They only offer pork products. Finding good brisket in Tennessee is a challenge. Parking is a bit of a challenge. As a Kansas City native, I set the bar pretty high since I know what the product could be.

        Then open a brisket spot. Mr. Lewis did it here in SC and he's doing pretty well.

        My wife and I love to visit Nashville and have been to Peg Leg in the Gulch a few times. Definitely felt their dry ribs were the best in town. (we preferred Jack's on Broad for brisket and pulled pork) Each time we go, I try to hit another new BBQ joint!

            I haven't been yet and I am only a couple of hours from there. If I remember correctly I got to see him last year at Memphis in May. He's been on You Tube and some BBQ tv shows. I hear a lot of good things.

              If going to Nashville - in addition to the aforementioned places - do yourself a favor and go to Loveless Cafe (and aim for off-peak hours). You're welcome.

                I second this. You simply cannot go wrong with anything on the menu at Loveless Cafe. Truly a destination restaurant.

              I go to Peg Leg occasionally, and I've never had anything bad. I love his dry ribs. I don't expect brisket in TN because it's not traditional here, and he has a sign inside that says so. I appreciate the philosophy, there are definitely some places here that should NOT be doing brisket. It's a poor representation most times, with a few exceptions. Peg Leg is worth the trip IMHO. The chicken with the white sauce is also incredible. Like I said, I've never had anything bad there, including the sides.

                Martin's BBQ with multiple locations in the Nashville area has pretty respectable brisket offering. Worth checking out if your in the mood.

                  Their wings were life changing for me, it's what got me into smoking meat. For some reason it's hard to find places in North Texas that have smoked wings on the menu, so I had to start making my own...and here we are today!

                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                slow n sear

                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                kareubequ bbq smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
