America's Best Barbecue

by Jane and Michael Stern

MEMPHIS, TENNESSE

In this barbecue capital, where the pork is mellow and the sauce alarming, the number one barbecue restaurant is the Cozy Corner, a humble, family-run storefront that serves peppery spareribs with a huge sweet-pork punch. Not to mention baby backs with meat that slips from the bone in glistening ribbons, plus thick disks of barbecue bologna, and that delightfully monomaniacal Memphis side dish, barbecue spaghetti (noodles bathed in a kaleidoscopic barbecue sauce—ideal for a hangover). Cozy's unique house specialty is Cornish hen, a plump little bird that emerges from its long smoke bath with fragile, burnished skin wrapping meat that throbs with spicy flavor right down to its bones.
