Video: In the Kitchen With the King of Memphis BBQ

Blues, BBQ, Elvis. That's Memphis.

Barbecue is everywhere in Memphis, and it seems like everyone has a list of their favorite joints. But if you want traditional, Memphis-style BBQ, then the name "Neely" has to be high on your list.

Jim Neely founded Interstate Bar-B-Q over 30 years ago, and with it he spawned a veritable barbecue empire. But while his nephews have gone on to Food Network stardom, Jim himself is a local institution.

We took a tour of Mr. Neely's original Memphis restaurant—including a visit to his smokehouse and a glimpse into his custom-built BBQ pits. Warning: if you're a fan of smoked meat, this video will probably make you very hungry.
