Memphis Sense of Place: David Dye’s top five BBQ joints

By

All week on World Cafe with David Dye, the Sense of Place series is exploring the city of Memphis and its musical heritage. Today, we continue David’s Top Fives by exploring the city’s famed BBQ scene. You can listen to the Sense of Place series on WXPN at 2 p.m. Monday through Friday all this week, or at 7 p.m. on XPN2: Singer-Songwriter Radio.

The story goes that if you ask anyone in Memphis for their favorite Barbecue joint they will give you a passionate answer.  But then no two will agree!  In that spirit here are five of the best that earned high praise from our Sense of Place sources.
