No visitor to Nashville should miss tasting some tangy, sticky, hand-pulled Tennessee barbecue. Some of the best stuff in town comes out a back window of a rickety ranch house known as Cantrell’s (829 Lischey Ave.; 615-226-3995). If you’re of particularly strong stock, hit up Dee’s Q (1000 Riverside Dr.; 615-227-0024) and challenge owner Reginald Crowder (Dee is his daughter) to give you a hit of his hottest stuff: the truly unbearable Drop Dead sauce.
