After getting settled in the room, we headed downtown to the Iron Pig BBQ, advertised as featuring Memphis style BBQ. I have not had the opportunity to try Memphis style, having mostly experienced Carolina or Texas styles in our travels. The place looked pretty beat up just like many of the great places we have tried down in the US. They were out of back ribs so we ordered side ribs and a pound of brisket. The rib sauce on the side had a peculiar flavour that neither of us liked so we ate them dry (the way I usually prefer). The brisket came with a nice, tangy horseradish sauce on the side. It was good but there was way too much and we had the leftovers (sans rib sauce) packaged up to go.
