Happy Pig Day!

Feb 28, 2012

Thursday of this week is much more than the first day of a new month. March 1 also happens to be National Pig Day! To celebrate, we suggest venturing out of your hotels or Smoky Mountain cabin rentals and checking out some of the best barbecue that Gatlinburg has to offer. In other words, let yourself really pig out. These brands have long track records for serving up succulent smoker fare, and they accept most credit cards except Swiner’s Club. Just remember that if you eat too much barbecue, you can always work it off with a hike through Great Smoky Mountains National Pork.

• Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que – Located on River Road, this longtime downtown restaurant serves a wide variety of smoked pork, chicken, brisket and sausage. You can also get steaks, hot wings and platters that mix and match your favorite items into one big feast. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

• Corky’s Ribs and BBQ – This Memphis-based chain has been wowing East Tennessee with its award-winning ribs and other barbecue goodies for several years now. Their hickory-smoked items are meaty, succulent and fall-of-the-bone tender. Plus their blend of special sauces helps complement the smoky goodness with zest flavors. Located in downtown Gatlinburg on the Parkway.
