“Celebrating 29 years in Memphis! ”

If you have ever had meat cooked long and slow and experienced fall off the bone tenderness and distinctive hickory flavor, you begin to understand why Corky’s BBQ is legendary...

Corky’s BBQ is cooked in the old fashioned southern tradition. We place top choice meat in an open and closed BBQ pit with hickory chips and charcoal and cook at low temperatures. Corky’s cooks it’s pork shoulders for 22 hours and it’s ribs for over 7 hours.

Great ribs. Possibly... TOO great. Known for the dry rub, get that and cover that stuff in the Apple BBQ sauce. It'll show you the face of a benevolent god before a hardcore case of the Itis.

Quite possibly the greatest BBQ ever, not just in Memphis but anywhere else in this great nation as well. I'm not a dry rub fan, but I hear it's delicious. Stick with ribs drenched in their sauce and you'll be good to go.
