Memphis summer outing
a bagful of barbecued
pull pork sandwiches

The last days of summer are slipping by, but in Memphis, Tennessee, you can dig into a heaping plate of barbeque year-round to relive those summer cookouts. Though they take their ribs seriously here, the city's claim to fame is its pulled pork sandwich: slow-roasted, hickory flavored pork shoulder shredded or chopped, piled onto a bun and topped with tangy slaw and a side of rich, sweet beans. The best places to get this southern special? Neely's Bar-B-Que in the Historic District or Payne's Original Bar-B-Que with their famous homemade sauce.
