Corky's

100 Franklin Rd., Brentwood, TN - (615) 373-1020
There are many pig fanciers who swear by Corky’s ribs, which are available wet or dry. Wet means bathed in Corky’s spicy red sauce; dry means crusted with a vivid spice mix that serves as a kind of envelope to hold all the sweet juices and smoke flavor inside. Also on the menu are hot tamales with chili and cheese, as well as beef and chicken barbecue. We have tried the beef and it is pretty darn good; but unless you are kosher, pork is definitely the meat to eat.

This appetizer pizza is loaded with moist pulled pork shoulder.  It's served on a cracker-crisp crust, with BBQ sauce and cheese.

Like this neon sign above the order counter, the flavor of Corky's barbecue has a vivid glow.

Culinary onanism = a pig in a chef's toque touting a barbecue restaurant that specializes in pork.
