Maybe we should listen to Carey Bringle. Tennessee Crossroads visits The Peg Leg Porker, where Carey champions the Memphis style. But don't judge. Just sample. Unless you want brisket. Carey says, if you do. you'll have to go to Texas. Join Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads to find out more.
