In the latest issue of People Country, you can find out exactly where country stars find the best barbecue. But I have to warn you, if you don’t live south of the Mason-Dixon Line, it’s kind of depressing. Tim McGraw likes Podnuh’s in Baton Rouge, Jason Aldean picks Fincher’s Bar-B-Q in Georgia and Jake Owen names a spot in Florida. Dolly Parton chooses Couser’s Southern Restaurant in Nashville (and also serves up quite a spread at her Dollywood theme park). I’m sure all those meals are just fine. But for those of us who live up north, what about us? Even though it didn’t make it to the top of anyone’s list, Memphis-based Corky’s is my personal favorite. Not just because it’s tasty, smoked and hand-pulled, but because they will deliver it to your door. You can get three pounds of their pulled pork and a bottle of sauce for around $70 and eat like a star no matter where you live.
