For those of you that have been to it.. would it be worth a 700 mile drive / couple day getaway with the little lady? (Yes.. I LOVE pork BBQ)

IMHO there are only 2 good things in Memphis: 1. Elvis and 2. BBQ ;)

Well I've got the vacation approved, tickets bought, and hotels reserved. Were bringing the eldo and we'll be there on Fri the 18th.

Anybody else on that date?

Anybody know where can I park that would allow for some downtown walking as well as the BBQ?

I've not been there, nor have I heard of it. But hell, a weekend away?! HELL yes! With food and, I'm assuming, beer!!!, it just gets better!!!

I have family in knoxville and they go to the BBQ every year since I don't know when. They swear theres only one place for BBQ and its memphis.
They were up here for the rib burn off and laughed when asked if they want anything from one of the vendors. Then went on to tell about these guys in TN. that make BBQ to die for...so good it would make your tongue beat up your mouth.

our band always opens for the headliners at the Rib Cookoff in Cleve over Mem Day weekend. We dont get free ribs, but usually some other gustatory delight.
