From Boston and finding myself just north of Nashville, in Glasgow, Bowling Green, and Hopkinsville, Kentucky on business, I've seized the opportunity to sample the local 'Q. A few notes on my travels:

Glasgow -
Big Moose's BBQ & Smokehouse
525 W Main St., Glasgow, KY 42141
Decor a little cutesy, but but serious 'Q. For lunch had the pulled pork sandwich, crunchy sweet potatos and vinegar slaw and left happy as did my fellow diners.

Bowling Green-
The Split Tree Barbeque
Feh! (We all make mistakes)

I will try to recover tonight at the Bar-B-Que Inn, 124 Russelville Rd. which credible locals have praised.

Whiporwill-
Ed's Barbeque
5521 Clarksville Rd. (RT.79)
Off the beaten track on 79 west of Bowling Green. Roadside take-out with only one table. Not the best 'Q by a long shot, but down home without a whiff of pretense.

Hopkinsville-
The Woodshed Pit Bar-B-Que
1821 West 7th St.
A genuine 'meat and threes' experience. Great food, atmosphere, and folks. By all means try the Burgoo. Yeah I know 'W' stopped in when he was campaigning for the nomination, but don't let that dissuade you.

I will be back in other areas of KY throughout the summer, so all 'Q destination suggestions are welcome.
