NASHVILLE — Travel + Leisure readers named Nashville the No. 1 city in the United States for barbecue.

"Music City won for compiling a greatest-hits collection of barbecue styles — from the whole-hog approach of rural Tennessee, the tomatoey sauces of Memphis, and even the mayo-and-vinegar white sauces typical of Alabama — with Southern-style catfish, fried okra, and banana pudding thrown in," according to the magazine.

It's a ranking some folks in Memphis, who placed second on the barbecue list, have taken issue with.
