I hate for this to be my first post, but what do you do.... I need to kill some time in Knoxville in a couple of weeks - family thing - I will have about 4 hours to blow by myself.

What is the best Q in Knoxville?
Are there any good BBQ supply shops in the area?
Smoker builders?

Thanks for your help in advance,
kak

I had a conference in Knoxville some years ago. We were downtown. As I recall, the only sort of entertainment was a bowling alley and pool hall. One evening we did find a bar and listened to some great blues, but overall, it was one of the most boring places I'd had a conference. I'm sure there must be something, but we didn't find it.

Just saw Dixon's BBQ on Man vs. Food. I don't know it might be worth a try.

Here's (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2525147&postcount=6) what all I know about Knoxville at the moment. I grew up there and go back pretty much every year, but have not spent very much time there the past couple decades.

It is a great place for people who don't require much excitement. The area is beautiful, the people are really nice and there probably still isn't much to do.

I would just add the word "currently" to that at the moment. It's been uncharacteristically bad and hopefully it won't stick.

The Top Three Academic Programs at UT Knoxville's athletics department:

3. Cannon Fodder

2. Shoe Tying

1. Future Groundskeepers of Vanderbilt Grads



































Note - this is the same for LSU with the exception that number 1 is "Out in 10 with good behavior"...
