Memphis BBQ Weekend Run

Spring planning has started...

This would be a weekend run to Memphis for BBQ. We do not have a date set, so you cannot put this on the calendar yet.

The plan would be, so far, show up Friday Night in Memphis. Hotel TBD. Spend Saturday eating BBQ. Need to know who has the best Bacon in town for breakfast. Find a BBQ joint for Lunch and Dinner. Then, on Sunday, we need someone to figure out a great ride from Memphis to Paducah (no slabs), stopping at 4 Rivers HD, then off north/south/east/west towards home, or wherever!

I posted a possibility for a Saturday ride that goes south to Vicksburg. Nothing final on that, or for lunch either so if you have ideas. Nobody says we all have to go on the same ride.

EDIT: Adding the plans we have so far...

Date: Weekend of April 25th

Location: On your own for hotel right now. Recommend downtown as many folks want to hit Beale St. Saturday night, and do not want to get arrested riding back after a bit of tippling.



Friday, 4/25
Everyone arrives whenever they arrive. Meet up for Dinner at Dyer's Burgers on Beale St. whenever you can. No set time, just go, enjoy, and see who's there.

For Saturday, 4/26
Breakfast: Brother Junipers. 7:00
am. We need to get there as early as possible, they do not take reservations but they do have a big (24 person) table we may get if we can.

After Breakfast Meetup
We will meet up at 9:00 on Beale Street, somewhere, just go there. If you cannot find the rest, then maybe you should not be riding

We will pull out for Oxford at 9:30. Here is a revised route.

Lunch: Run down to the Double Decker Arts Festival in Oxford, MS for lunch, live music and some fun. There will be a planned run there off the Interstate, but you are free to get there any way you like.

After Lunch will be free time. Feel free to organize a ride. Just be sure you are at Central BBQ by 7:00 pm.

Dinner: Central BBQ on Summer Ave. Time is 7:00 PM. We will have a Party Room with seating for 80. Any more than that, they go outside in the Parking Lot

Sunday, 4/27
Breakfast: TBD
After breakfast, everyone is headed home in whatever direction suits them.

Sounds good to me. How about early May, maybe even the first weekend? Paducah huh, soooo you're thinkin' a weekend of BBQ topped off with a ride to Pattys for a pork chop and some Sawdust pie

Not sure of the ride back north. It depends on how long you wanna take. By Sunday people will be wanting to get home but the Trace is a nice ride through Land Between the Lakes.

Looks like it will be Brother Juniper's for Breakfast.

That's one down. Need to figure out where to go for Lunch and Dinner in Memphis. The only BBQ I have had there was many, many years ago at the Pig and Whistle. I think this is the place. It looks familar, but it has been a while.

I like Jim's ride between the lakes.

After breakfast, we can head here for dessert or a midnight snack since they are open 24 hrs...lol BACON DONUTS at Gibson’s Donuts.



Sure, you’re in Memphis primarily to gorge on meat. But you’d be a fool to miss out on this all-American donut shop. The cultish destination, located about 20 minutes out of town by car, is a favorite hangout for University of Memphis students looking for some brain food—it’s open 24 hours a day, and when the next day’s product comes out each night at 11pm, all the old donuts sell for just $1.40 per half-dozen. While you’ll find popular nouveau donuts like maple-bacon, the best are the throwbacks—cakey old-fashioneds, cruellers, éclairs, and the like.

Order this: The New Orleans buttermilk drop is a local classic. It’s more like a ball of Southern white cake than a donut, coated in a addictive buttermilk icing. 760 Mount Moriah Rd at S Mendenhall Rd, East Memphis, TN (901-682-8200)

Mr. Old Nerd Guy,
Are you wanting to stay downtown? If so the Westin is probably the best bet. Walking distance to everywhere cool and still shiny new. There are several good BBQ places down town but, Central BBQ and Leonard's are out east. Memphis to Paducah will be a tuff one to find a fun version of b/c there's mostly farm land between the two. I'll ask around and see if anyone knows a nice route. Hit me up if you want to know anything.
Ride safe

excuse me while I whip this out...

Double J Smokehouse on G.E. Patterson St.,and Blues City Cafe on Beal St. is the best in Memphis. If you want tourist BBQ then go to Charles Vergos Rendezvous (Great atmosphere, food is ok)

The best BBQ here is actually just south of Memphis in horn lake Mississippi. Memphis BBQ company. Several time Memphis in May winner and judge on that pitmasters show. It's awesome.

You got a different taxman than we have, so you are on your own.

What's with this Mr. shit??? Did someone flip the polite switch on the forum?

JK, welcome. Westin may be a bit pricey for this crowd. It'll depend on where we decide to go.
