Peg Leg Porker BBQ

Nashville, TN

Other than politics and football, the most controversial topic of discussion among Tennesseans could easily be barbecue. You know how it goes: Daddy likes dry rub, Mama likes lots of wet sauce and crazy Uncle Harvey swears by brisket. Before you know it, nobody's talking to anyone.

Carey says, if you do. you'll have to go to Texas. Join Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads to find out more.
