Any recommendations for Nashville? I'll be there for a conference in July and desperately need BBQ.

Will you be downtown or out at the Gaylord?

Downtown has the famous Jack's. Pretty good. I liked Rippy's across the street a bit better.
They have opened up a Martin's BBQ downtown as well. I have not been there, but the original is great. But you never know, as they are expanding....

Most important downtown. While most bars will have 1 or 2 decent beers, Broadway Brewhouse has a great selection. A bit further down the road is a Flying Saucer. If you have never been to one, worth a visit. Read the quotes on the saucers (awarded to a person who has had 200 different beers at a Saucer).

If you are out at Gaylord, you are screwed without a car.

If you are driving, Peg Leg Porkers in the Gulch is good. The Gulch is a new area with some good breweries (Yazoo & Jackalope) and bars with good selection of beers. I really liked Hops & Crafts, but I might have just hit it on a good day. Nice folks there.

A bit further afield, there are a few locations for Edley's which is good.

In addition to BBQ, try Hot Chicken (there are a couple places) and a "meat and three", southern cooking. A meat (order fried chicken) and three sides, order collard greens as one of the sides.

I'll be at the Convention Center. I'm up for Uber if necessary. I think I have Thursday night for dinner and Sunday for lunch free, so I can try two.

Let me look when I get a chance.
BTW in terminal C there is a Yazoo beer kiosk, if you have time to kill at the airport.

I'm a big fan of Corky's BBQ in Brentwood!

Thanks. I will probably have some time to kill at the airport.

Looks like I'll be about 5 minutes away walking from Jack's. It's an 18 minute walk to Peg Leg Porker's. Or, a quick Uber drive.

Adding The Smoke Pit in Concord, NC. It's attached to The Stock Yard meat market and oh my god it's great. If it isn't the best I've ever had, I can't remember what is!

I had a very good lunch there a little over a year ago. It's definitely worth a visit.

Orlando - 4 Rivers (Texas style) the most tender and flavorful meats generally a long line which is a sign.
Memphis - Central BBQ - Made a video from recent trip and marked the BBQ segment with link below - advance to 3:25 for Central BBQ.

What's good in the Jacksonville area? I'm heading to Amelia Island for work next week.
