This bbq kiosk inside the Memphis Zoo didn’t last for very long, but I’m not sure why. We actually enjoyed it, especially because the meat was actually wood-smoked on site. Check out my slideshow of pictures from our family visit to the Christmas Zoo Lights event and our dinner for the evening, Alton’s BBQ. Check back in the future for the full story. If you’d like to read more about it sooner, comment to let me know. Until then, don’t miss my Quick-Fire Guide below.

Here are a few notes about the ‘que:


  • Shoulder-Was tender and moist, with well-developed exterior bark.


  • ShoulderThe pork on my bbq sandwich had fully balanced wood-smoke flavor.

Sauce-a standard sweet and tangy bbq sauce, with enough tanginess to compliment the smoked pork.
