Question Help planning a road trip

Hi all,
I'm new here from Michigan and want to plan a BBQ road trip with my son this summer. I'm looking for help planning on where to start. Being in Michigan, I was thinking starting in Memphis and going out from there. IDK where to begin or where I should start. Looking for suggestions, ideas, etc. I've got 2 weeks off in July for shutdown and wanna leave after the 4th holiday.
I appreciate any and all help.
Thanks and Cheers!

Skip all that KC and Memphis stuff. It's all just pork drowning in sauce. Come to Texas, it's illegal to even use sauce and we know what beef is.

Rockinar, Thanks for the idea but I wanna keep a bit closer this time. Houston is about 22-24 hour drive for us. Maybe one day I'll head down there.

I'd much rather swing through Kansas City and St. Louis than Memphis, if you want to stay closer to home. Otherwise, I love driving through Texas BBQ country. While Texas is defined more by beef and the Carolinas by pork, Kansas City, St. Louis (and Memphis) really don't meet their stereotypes and their BBQ varies widely. I've had some excellent brisket and ribs in Kansas and Oklahoma sans sauce. The problem is that this region seems to have been defined more by the KC Masterpiece sauce than the reality that actually exists in the region. The same with Memphis dry rub ribs. This seems to have been made famous by Rendezvous, which produced some of the worst ribs I've ever eaten (in that way they were memorable). Most of the ribs (and the best ones) I've eaten in Memphis were wet. Just my 2 cents. YMMV.
