Corky's vs. Neely's

Sheena has been spending an inordinate amount of time connecting through the Memphis airport in recent weeks, no thanks to her homies at NWA.

The one good thing about the Memphis airport is the food. About half a dozen real local BBQ places. So far done Corky's and Jim Neely's Interstate BBQ.

With only 40 minutes between connections, one has to be quick and strategic with food samples, so I've decided to forego more complicated rib dishes and unoriginal chicken, and focus only on the classic pulled pork sandwich. No fries or sides or other fixin's. Plus, Sheena likes saying "pulled pork". Especially while wearing her sheared beaver.

So far Neely's comes out on top. Messy with sauce dripping all over, very moist with the right amount of tang. Corky's was pretty dry, just a puddle of sauce on the side and not enough to keep the loaded pork sandwich wet 'n juicy while listening to the asshole from southern Michigan sitting beside me rant about his delayed connections. Time Share Loser.

Still have to work my way through Huey's and the Back Yard Burgers. Final rankings still pending...

I heard too much pulled pork will make you go blind. That's just what I heard. I don't have an opinion either way.
