It doesn’t matter where you are in Tennessee, you can’t leave without getting your hands and taste buds on some barbecue. In the Smoky Mountains region, a fan-favorite is Delauder’s. Now, it might not seem like much from the outside, but that no-frills appearance is typical of a barbecue joint that focuses on the food. There’s no need to fuss over decor when customers will be completely buried in a plate of world-famous ribs anyway. Now, Delauder’s focuses on pulled pork -- served nearly every way imaginable. Try the “Sneaky Pig,” pulled pork topped with Delauder’s award-winning habanero sauce, sweet onion, and lettuce, or the “Smoky Mountain Slaw Dog,” an all-beef hot dog topped with sweet jalapeño mustard, pulled pork, and slaw.
