Some Good Barbeque (bar-be-que)

When my friend and I decided to take a week long trip down to Tennessee, one of the things I anticipated most (aside from hiking in the Smokies) was bar-be-que.  After driving through Kentucky (and yes, we did stop off to try KFC in Kentucky…), we finally arrive in Downtown Nashville.
So many things to do in Nashville but we were starving from the long drive and one of the first things we noticed was a line-up out of Jack’s Bar-be-que that kept growing.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but I figured it must’ve been worth the wait in line.  Heck, one of the guys cleaning the sidewalk kept exclaiming that “the line is long, but it’s all worth it!”

The huge crowd at Jack's Bar-B-Que

It was mighty hot that day and pretty much every day we were in Tennessee, it was the month of August.  Once we inched our way through the door, it was still sticky humid even with the air conditioner blasting cool air over us.  Jack’s was a pretty busy place but the food was amazing.  With different bar-be-que sauces to try out and some amazing cornbread to go with the pulled pork — my friend went nuts and even bought dinner to bring to the campsite we were staying at.

Looking back, I only wish I had bought some dessert.  That’s my sweet tooth talking.
