My husband and are staying on the outside fringes of Sevierville on Highway 66. We had lunch today at Tony Gore's Smoky Mountain BBQ and Grill (1818 Winfield Dunn Pkwy). What a pleasant surprise. I had the bbq pork sliders (3 little pigs), and a side of slaw. They serve extremely good pork. The chop was just right, there was some smoke flavor, and the meat was nice and moist. The slaw was crispy, and just a little sweet. I topped each of my sliders with some of the slaw, added a couple of shots of vinegar sauce, and was in eating heaven. I would rank my sandwich right up near the top of my list.
My husband had the bbq plate with a side of beans. The beans came out piping hot, but a little sweet for my taste.
I wish I had another day to go back--beef brisket was on the menu. Having just been on an eating spree in Lockhart, Texas, I would love to do a comparison taste test.
The three sauces on the table were eastern NC vinegar with a nice bit of heat; one that tasted like the generic red stuff from the grocery, and a soy based sauce that I thought overpowered the meat. I would say stick with the vinegar sauce.
The place is down the road from Knife Works (exit 407 off of I-40)
