Region » South: Memphis

When people talk about BBQ, for the most part they are talking about Memphis, Tennessee’s fine, slow cooked, pork based recipes. Ribs are the claim to fame here, with wet or sauce based ribs or dry rubbed delights being the main ways this region enjoys them. This area is so crazy about their BBQ that the world’s biggest BBQ contest, the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, is held here every May. Smaller spots, or "joints" as they are locally known, stay true to the cultural roots of BBQ in the area. Check out’s recommended Memphis style BBQ sauce recipe or any of the other Memphis style recipes to create your authentic BBQ experience at your next cookout.
