Another Memphis Report - BBQ and Pimento Cheese
- biskuit Nov 20, 2007 03:55 AM
Quick weekend in Memphis - managed to hit Payne's (there is nothing better) where I did a side by side chopped and sliced sandwich comparison - I prefer the chopped, but the sliced was really good, the difference is mainly in the "mouthfeel" of biting through the thick slices, which does provide a very different experience. Also picked up ribs from Central, both dry and wet, both very good. The dry weren't quite "dry" enough for my tastes - seemed like not quite wet enough wet vs. the kind with the dry seasoning evident on top. Lots of pics at http://flickr.com/photos/kaplanbr/set...
Also hit Miss Cordelia's market down on Mud Island, really nice little market/cafe, and had an enjoyable "bourbon pimento cheese" on toasted wheat. A nice stop if you're down there enjoying the beautiful stroll along the Mississippi river.
