Dugger, I concentrated on the BBQ when I landed in Memphis. I also learned that when you ordered "tea", it meant iced tea (sweet or unsweet?) instead of the hot stuff. Also learned to put slaw on my pulled pork sandwiches and to differentiate between wet and dry ribs (I'm a wet kinda person).
Foods I did not get into when I lived in Memphis - BBQ pizza (a mortal sin to this Chicago native), BBQ baloney, fried okra.
Tell more about Luavull food and drink (mods, please move as appropriate) - I'm thinkin' chess pie, Derby pie, mint juleps, bourbon.
But don't forget about Memphis' status as a major river town as well! And it has good blues music.
Kool Aid - Think before you drink.
