Memphis is where Blues music was first put on paper by W.C. Handy and then celebrated, with gusto and around the clock, on Beale Street. Memphis is where Rock 'n Roll began and where Elvis Presley ruled as the King. And, Memphis is where music continues to flourish.</p> <p class="text">Memphis music will reward your expectations. But, don't think that's all there is. A second look at Memphis reveals cultural and recreational offerings of surprising diversity; museums and historical tours, a zoo that delights, a riverfront that soothes, and attractions that appeal to the entire family. There are antique stores, outlet shopping, and malls that offer a full spectrum of things to buy.</p> <p>Don't forget our food; barbecue, home cooking, fine dining, American classics, Southwest spice, Asian influences, and great burgers. Genuine Southern-style hospitality is available citywide, offering friendly sightseeing, recreation, sports, easy weather and easy access.</p> <p>[Click Photo to enlarge] ...and Visit my <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/memphisview.htm"><strong>Memphis Pictoral Tour</strong></a> for an extensive gallery of photos.</p> <table class="tablelinks"><tr><td> <div class="gallery"><a rel="group6" href="/memphis/memphis_skyline2.jpg" title="Memphis Skyline"><img src="/memphis/memphis_skyline2tn.jpg" alt="Memphis Skyline" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/memphis/sky-bridge.jpg" title="Memphis Hernandao-Desoto Bridge at Sunset"><img src="/memphis/sky-bridgetn.jpg" alt="Memphis Hernandao-Desoto Bridge at Sunset" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/memphis/beale2.jpg" title="Beale Street"><img src="/memphis/beale2tn.jpg" alt="Beale Street" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/memphis/courtsq1.jpg" title="Memphis Downtown Court Square"><img src="/memphis/courtsq1tn.jpg" alt="Memphis Downtown Court Square" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/memphis/peabody_ducks_fountain.jpg" title="Ducks-Peabody Fountain"><img src="/memphis/peabody_ducks_fountain-tn.jpg" alt="Ducks-Peabody Fountain" /></a></div></td></tr></table><br /> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> <div class="panel" id="bbq"> <h3><img src="/wpcoda/heart_30x30.gif" width="30" height="30" alt="memphis" />Barbecue<img src="/wpcoda/heart_30x30.gif" width="30" height="30" alt="memphis" /></h3> <p class="text"><strong>Barbecue</strong> by any other name... </p> <p class="text">There is a strong indication that the word "barbecue" comes from the Spanish word <em>barbacoa</em> which is derived from an American Indian word for the framework of green wood on which meat or fish was cooked over a pit of coals.

The answer is far from clear cut and depends on how you define barbecue. To some it means a spicy sauce, to others a cooking style; then there are those who say it's a drippy meat concoction, and to anyone with a backyard it's a festive outdoor party!</p> <div class="gallery"> <a rel="group6" href="/mim/wcbcc-mbridge.jpg" title="World Championship Barbecue Contest"><img src="/mim/wcbcc-mbridge-tn.jpg" alt="World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/mim/wcbcc_crowd_night.jpg" title="World Championship Barbecue Night"><img src="/mim/wcbcc_crowd_night-tn.jpg" alt="World Championship Barbecue Night" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/mim/whole_hog1.jpg" title="World Championship Barbecue Whole Hog"><img src="/mim/whole_hog1-tn.jpg" alt="World Championship Barbecue Whole Hog" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/mim/wcbcc_mimpig.jpg" title="World Championship Barbecue-Hog Mascot"><img src="/mim/wcbcc_mimpig-tn.jpg" alt="World Championship Barbecue-Hog Mascot" /></a> <a rel="group6" href="/mim/wcbcc_aerial.jpg" title="World Championship Barbecue Aerial"><img src="/mim/wcbcc_aerial-tn.jpg" alt="World Championship Barbecue Aerial" /></a></div> <h4>Additional Barbecue Links, Recipes, and Friend's Pages</h4> <table class="table"><tr><td align="left"> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/" >Home</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/barbecue.htm">Barbecue Page</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/cookers.html">What Cookers Cook</a><br /> <a href="http://backdraftsmokers.com/">Backdraft Smokers Championship Barbecue Team Website</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/bbqfriends.htm">AngelPig's Q'Friends</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/chilijudge.htm">The Chili Judge</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/allniter.htm">Ode to the Allniter</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/mimmemories.htm">MIM Memories</a><br /> <a href="http://www.angelpig.net/pigs.htm">Hogland U.S.A.</a></td></tr></table> </div> <div class="panel" id="links"> <h3>AngelWebDesign, Friend Links, Disclaimer and Legal Stuff</h3> <table class="tablelinks"><tr><td> <a href="http://backdraftsmokers.com/"><img src="/links/backdraft_link.jpg" alt="backdraft" /></a></td> <td><a href="http://www.nocents.us/"><img src="/links/nocents_130.gif" alt="NOCents" /></a></td> <td><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/fl/bbqmim/"><img src="/links/fblo-link.gif" alt="bbq lovers only" /></a></td></tr></table> <table class="tablelinks"><tr><td> <a href="http://www.barbecuen.com/"><img src="/links/barbecuen_com_newtitle.jpg" alt="barbecuen.com" /></a></td></tr></table> <table class="tablelinks"><tr><td> <a href="http://www.portalmemphis.com/"> <img src="/links/portalmem1.jpg" alt="PortalMemphis!" /></a></td></tr></table> <table class="tablelinks"><tr><td> <img src="/images/angelweb_anim_01.gif" alt="AngelWebDesign" /></td> <td class="c1"><p>AngelWeb Designs supports web standards and the <a href="http://www.w3c.org" title="the world wide web consortium for web standards (alt-W)" accesskey="w"><span class="c9">w3c</span></a> and will endeavor to ensure all projects are usable in as many browsers as possible - unless customer requirements indicate otherwise.</p></td></tr></table> <p style="text-align:left;">&#149; <a href="http://www.angelpig.com/design.html">&nbsp; More Details</a></p> <div class="redheart">&hearts;</div> <img src="/images/hr1.gif" alt="image" class="c1" /> <table class="copyscapetable"><tr><td> <a href="http://www.copyscape.com/"> <img src="http://banners.copyscape.com/images/cs-wh-3d-234x16.gif" alt="protected against website content theft by Copyscape" class="c1" /></a> <p>All rights reserved.
