From the New York Times:

Here is a list of the 18 Southern barbecue restaurants visited by four Birmingham-Southern College students in January for an unusual interim-period writing course:

Germantown Commissary -- Memphis, Tenn.

Neely's Bar-b-que -- Memphis, Tenn.

Corky's BBQ -- Memphis, Tenn.

Jack's Bar-b-que -- Nashville, Tenn.

Sticky Fingers RibHouse -- Chattanooga, Tenn.

Lexington Barbecue No. 1 -- Lexington, N.C.

The Pit -- Raleigh, N.C.

Stamey's -- Greensboro, N.C.

B's Barbecue and Grill -- Greenville, N.C.

Wilber's Barbecue -- Goldsboro, N.C.

Scott BBQ -- Hemingway, S.C.

Sweatman's Bar-b-que -- Holly Hill, S.C.

Fresh Air Bar-B-Que -- Athens, Ga.

Old Clinton Bar-b-q -- Gray, Ga.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q -- Atlanta, Ga.

Byron's Smoke House -- Auburn, Ala.

Dreamland Bar-B-Q -- Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q -- Decatur, Ala.

Their omission of Archibald's in Northport,perhaps an hour away is staggering.

Leave it to the academics to ignore the elephant in the room and focus on a snag in the carpet instead.

Has anyone visited ALL the places on the list?
